Google has released an updated beta version of its Chrome web browser to tackle bugs, security flaws and performance issues.

The latest release, which will automatically be distributed to users over the next few days, comes after a beta developer version of the browser was released to stop the browser crashing.

The latest beta version is aimed at a wider audience. "Google Chrome version fixes the top issues we have heard about from people using the beta release, especially with plug-ins - the programs that show video on sites like YouTube," said Mark Larson, Google Chrome program manager.

"This release also fixes an issue with address spoofing in pop-ups. A site could convince a user to click a link to open a pop-up window. The window's address bar could be manipulated to show a different address than the actual origin of the content," said Larson.
