On April 14, 2021, Google released a new version of the Google Chrome browser. Google Chrome 90 runs on all major operating systems: Windows 10 / Windows 7, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Chrome 90 fixed 37 security bugs, including the zero-day vulnerabilities CVE-2021-21206 and CVE-2021-21220.
What’s new in version 90
The major changes in Chrome 90 include:
- HTTPS has become the default protocol to improve security when browsing the web. Now when you enter any URL in the address bar, even without specifying a protocol, an HTTPS connection will automatically be applied.
- A tab search feature has been added (to search open or recently closed tabs). To search, you need to click the small arrow button to the right of the tabs.
- Additional protection against NAT Slipstreaming attacks. The browser now blocks FTP, HTTP and HTTPS connections to port 554.
- The new AV1 encoder significantly improves the performance of video conferencing software using WebRTC over VP9 and other codecs. AV1 shows better video compression efficiency, reduces bandwidth consumption (so that even users with very slow connections can receive the video stream) and improves visual quality.
