Starting with Chrome version 55 the browser will default to a site’s HTML5 experience. An exception to this rule only applies to the top 10 websites that use Flash (and only for a year). Chrome 55 is also said to drastically reduce RAM usage by as much as 50 percent thanks to an updated JavaScript V8 engine. We also recommend checking out our Chrome optimization guide.

Security Fixes and Rewards

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

This update includes 2 security fix contributed by an external researcher, detailed below. Please see the Chrome Security Page for more information.

Many of our security bugs are detected using AddressSanitizer, MemorySanitizer, UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer, Control Flow Integrity, libFuzzer, or AFL.
