The regularly scheduled updates repair bugs, improve stability and add new features. The biggest news in the latest round of updates is the release of the Chrome 33 Web browser for Windows, Mac and Linux, Anthony Laforge of the Google Chrome team wrote in a March 14 post on the Chrome Releases Blog. Chrome 33 has been released to the stable channel, with Version 33.0.1750.152 for Mac and Linux and Version 33.0.1750.154 for Windows, wrote Laforge. The new version corrects several memory corruption and other security issues that were found in previous versions of the application. Version 33 of Chrome replaces Stable Version 32, which was released to users in January. That release included indicators on the browser tabs so that users can quickly find tabs that may be running audio sound clips, Webcams or Webcasts, which can be distracting. Also included was a different look for Windows 8's Metro mode, as well as the automatic blocking of malware files. A new Chrome for Android update was also released as Version 33, Jason Kersey of the Google Chrome team wrote in another March 14 post on the Chrome Releases Blog. The new version 33.0.1750.166 fixes three high-priority bugs that cause memory corruption and other problems in the applications, wrote Kersey.
