Google updates Chrome browser to stop it crashing

Google has launched a new developer version of its Chrome browser to help fix operational problems.

Google Chrome version has been released to Google's Chrome Dev channel, which allows developers to test the latest fixes and get access to new features as they're being developed.

Mark Larson, Google Chrome program manager, said, "Release 154.0 had a few browser crashes, including a crash on start-up on tablet PCs running Windows Vista. We fixed the new crashes and 154.3 should be much more stable."

He added, "There are more plug-in performance updates in this release, including fixing some videos that halt after one second and plug-ins causing the browser to become unresponsive."

Larson said the update also made Chrome more secure, with new security features for downloaded files.
