On Thursday night, Google announced on its official Chrome blog that the standard version 90 for Google, MacOS and Linux will be available. In the new version, Chrome now prefers https over http, if not specified in the address bar. So if a user types in an address bar without specifying the protocol, Chrome will try to navigate using https first, and then return to http if https is not available. Additionally, the AV1 encoder is integrated into Chrome, making it ideal for video conferencing with WebRTC. There are further improvements, bug fixes and security improvements, which can be found below. This update also covers 37 vulnerabilities in older versions of Google Chrome. As always, access to details and links will be blocked until most users receive this update. More information about this update can be found below or at Google.
