32 security flaws
In the new version, Google has improved security and fixed 32 specific vulnerabilities, eight of which were also marked as serious errors. At the same time as they are now pushing out a stable version of Chrome 91, 92 is out as a beta, and Chrome 93 is available in the Canary channel.

 

Desktop users get the update first and macOS, Windows, and Linux can upgrade to Chrome 91 via Settings -> Help -> About Google Chrome. Once the update is available, Chrome will automatically download and update a new version.

 

New features
This version of Chrome comes with a very user-friendly feature for those who use webmail, with Chrome it is now supported and drags files into an email so that it is automatically added as an attachment.

 

- Chrome supports files from DataTransfer using drag-and-drop, but not copy-and-paste, according to Google's change history for this feature.

With the new update, it is now possible to use CTRL + C, CTRL + V for a task such as adding an attachment to an email, in addition to being able to drag files in as before.

 

One of the security updates that has been added is extended security against so-called NAT Slipstreaming, a block of port 10080 has now been added. This is something Firefox has been doing since November last year.

NAT Slipstreaming attacks exploit routers' Application Level Gateway (ALG) feature to access any port on an internal network, potentially giving an attacker access to services normally secured by the router.

 

More news for developers
There are new APIs and changes in Chrome for developers in this version, among the highlights are Gravity Sensor API, WebOTP API cross-origin iframe, WebSockets over HTTP / 2, custom styles for CSS counter and if you want to know more about what's new for developers you can see everything in the video below:
