On July 14, 2020, Google released a new version of the Google Chrome browser. Google Chrome 84 runs on all major operating systems: Windows 10 / Windows 7, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Chrome 84 fixed 38 security bugs, including one critical vulnerability (CVE-2020-6510, a buffer overflow in the background fetch handler).
What’s new in version 84
The major changes in Chrome 84:
- Reduced CPU consumption. When other windows overlap the browser window, Chrome eliminates rendering of pixels in overlapping areas.
- An experimental feature has been added to block resource-intensive ads, which you can activate with the chrome://flags/#enable-heavy-ad-intervention
- By default, protection against annoying notifications is enabled. Push notification requests are automatically collapsed into an indicator with a strikethrough bell. When you click on the indicator, you can accept or reject the request.
- Unsafe downloads (without encryption) of executable files are blocked, and a warning window has been added for unsafe archive downloads. In the future it is planned to stop support of downloading files without encryption altogether.
- Added protection against changing user settings without explicit consent. If the add-on changes the default search engine or the page displayed for a new tab, the browser will now display a dialog asking you to confirm or cancel the change.
- Disabled support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols as not robust enough. To access secure sites, the server must now provide support for at least TLS 1.2, otherwise the browser will now display an error.
