Version 22 of Chrome delivers more secure Flash support in Windows
Google has released version 22 of their popular Chrome web browser and while it doesn’t come with a huge list of changes, there are a couple of features to get excited about if you are concerned with security. Google has infused Chrome with the fully hardware-accelerated Pepper Flash plug-in for Windows users, resulting in what has been described as unrivalled protection against malicious Flash apps found lurking on the Internet.
Chrome has had its fair share of vulnerabilities over the past few years but as Geek points out, its sandbox has been pretty tough to get around – and that’s exactly where Google is housing the Flash plug-in for safe keepings. The company claims that Flash-related crashes have been reduced by about 20 percent thanks to the change.
