Google Release Patch for Chrome Browser

Google released a patch for its Chrome 8 browser on Thursday that reportedly addressed 13 vulnerabilities in  its code.  The patch also debuted the company's new built-in PDF viewer, offered as an alternative to the bug-plagued Adobe Reader plug-in, and included support for the soon-to-be-launched Chrome Web Store.

The 13 bugs addressed in Chrome  8.0.552.215 occur in the browser's history, video indexing, and the display of SVG (scalable vector graphics) animations.  Four of the bugs are tagged as “high” level, the company's second most serious rating, while five were deemed “medium” and the other four labeled “low.”

The Mountain View, California-based company reportedly dished out $4,000 in bounties to five separate researchers for locating the bugs.  The company has now paid out almost $30,000 in bug-bounty payments since mid-August.

Earlier this week, Net Applications reported that Chrome's share of the global browser market stood at a record 9.3 percent, placing it third behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla's Firefox, and expanding its lead over Apple's Safari browser.
