GOOGLE has released a new version of Chrome that fixes more than 30 bugs that hackers could exploit.
Chrome 102 fixes one issue rated critical and eight issues rated high.
The tech giant is silent about the full extent of the security gaps.
It’s pretty common, giving people enough time to install the update – and not give cyber crooks instructions on a golden platter.
Many of the bugs were discovered by outside experts who search for bugs in Chrome for a monetary reward.
This means that the vast majority would have been found before hackers are aware.
“Access to error details and links may remain limited until a majority of users have been updated with a fix,” Google said.
“We will also maintain limitations when the bug exists in a third-party library that other projects similarly depend on but have not yet fixed.
“We also want to thank all of the security researchers who worked with us throughout the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel.”
A total of 32 security fixes were made.
But the latest update isn’t all about serious stuff, there are also some slight front-end feature adjustments.
Below that is a new keyboard trick that lets you move Chrome tabs around.
All you have to do is hold down CTRL and SHIFT and use the up and down keys to move the tab position.
Anyone making a presentation can now also control it from a separate tab.
