A vital update for its Chrome web browser for the Mac is now available, and it’s an update you should install as soon as possible.
The update is labeled as version 99.0.4844.84. To update Chrome, launch the browser, click on the Chrome menu and select About Google Chrome. This will open the About Chrome section of Chrome’s settings, and in the main window, you’ll see information on the version of Chrome you are using, and the ability to check for an update. Then click Relaunch to install the update.
The security update comes about three weeks after Google announced that Chrome posted the highest score in the Speedometer browser test. Its score of 300 beat Safari 15.4 by 13 points, though the margin was only 3 points when compared to the Safari Technology Preview, which is Apple’s beta of its browser used to test new features.
