Google today released a new update for its Chrome browser which is available for download with version 67.0.3396.62 for all users on Windows. The latest update comes with new features along with fixes which were tested by beta users over the last couple of weeks.

The latest update comes with support for Generic Sensors API along with improvements to VR and AR experiences. The Generic Sensors API allows the developers to get their hands on accelerometers or gyroscopes sensors on their websites.

The company has also added WebXR Device API support which enables the creation of Virtual and Augmented reality experience both on PC and Mobile headsets. The API is currently available as an Origin trial and the developers would require to sign up before using it.

The update also brings support for Progressive Web Apps which can be programmed were in they can be opened automatically via the Chrome browser both on PCs and Mac.

Google has also released a Site isolation feature which improves the overall security of the Chrome browser bringing the users at minimum risk. The update also includes mitigations for the recent Meltdown and Spectre attack. Google has also included support for BigInt’s which are numeric primitive in JavaScript representing integers with arbitrary precision.

“We’re continuing to roll out Site Isolation to a larger percentage of the stable population in Chrome 67. Site Isolation improves Chrome’s security and helps mitigate the risks posed by Spectre. To diagnose whether an issue is caused by Site Isolation, use chrome://flags#site-isolation-trial-opt-out as described here,” said Google’s Krishna Govind.”

There are also close to 34 security fixes which have been rolled out by Google in the latest update to the Chrome browser. The details of the security fixes are not yet available and we expect Google to release the details in the release notes in a couple of days.

The latest update to the Chrome Browser is already rolling out and should be available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Earlier this month, Google announced that the Chrome 69 still stop displaying the http indication in the browser and it certainly makes sense since the web is slowly migrating to http. The HTTP sites, on the other hand, will be flagged more prominently and in this case, Google will show that the connection to the site is not secure.
