What’s in the latest Chrome update? Faster phishing site warnings, more Actions

Google has released Chrome 92, an upgrade that boosts the browser’s performance during anti-phishing calculations, expands the reach of its site isolation technologies and adds some new “Chrome Actions” to its repertoire.

The California-based search giant also paid out more than $133,000 in bounties to those who reported some of the 35 vulnerabilities patched in Chrome 92, which was released last week. At least nine of the bugs were marked “High,” Google’s second-most-serious threat level. A number of the bounties, including four labeled “High,” had not yet been assigned a dollar amount, so Google’s final payout will almost certainly top the acknowledged total.

Because Chrome updates in the background, most users can finish a refresh by relaunching the browser. To manually update, select “About Google Chrome” from the Help menu under the three-dot icon at the upper right; the resulting tab shows that the browser has been updated or displays the download process before presenting a Relaunch button. People new to Chrome can download version 92 for Windows, macOS, and Linux directly. The Android and iOS browsers can be found in the Google Play and App Store markets, respectively.

Google currently updates Chrome about every six weeks, although the previous version was released May 26. However, Google has said it will accelerate the Chrome release schedule so that by October the interval will have fallen to four weeks.

Analyzing colors to warn of phishing

Google has been making much of Chrome’s lean-in on privacy of late, a response to rivals making hay over stopping trackers from following users as they skip from site to site. Google’s stated project, dubbed “Privacy Sandbox,” laid down new milestones toward the end of June that put off major action until late 2022. While other browser makers have put pedal to the metal on blocking tracking bits, Google said: “We need to move at a responsible pace.”

That there are only minor privacy-specific enhancements to Chrome 92, then, comes as no surprise. One that Google highlighted is a new way to access the rights users have awarded specific websites.
