Google has released the Chrome 8.0.552.215 update, providing security updates and fixing around 800 bug and stability issues.
Among the biggest updates is to the browser's PDF component, which is now placed within the Chrome sandbox to provide an extra layer of security. Google recently announced a similar sandbox update for Adobe's Flash player.
The update also contains 13 vulnerability fixes, four classified as a 'high' security threat. These flaws were credited to third-party researchers who received rewards of $500 to $1,000 (£320 to £640)for the disclosures.
Five of the vulnerabilities are classified as 'medium' risk, including an update to the 'dangerous file types' protection for the Mac OS X and Linux versions of Chrome. The remaining vulnerabilities are all classified as 'low' security risk.
The update comes just two days after VMware issued a security fix for its ESX server platform.
The next major scheduled update will come on 14 December when Microsoft posts its monthly security bulletins.
