If you use Chrome, Google has just given you 37 compelling reasons to do so RIGHT NOW.

After the discovery of 37 vulnerabilities in the popular software, Google Chrome users should update their browser as soon as possible.

If you use Chrome to browse the web, it’s a good idea to go to the settings menu and click the update button.

Google has just announced the release of a new version of this widely used software that addresses a total of 37 vulnerabilities, the most in a long time.

The majority of the issues have been given a high level warning, but one has been classified as critical by the Chrome team.

Fortunately, unlike previous alerts, Google hasn’t added any zero-day warnings to any of these new bugs, indicating that they haven’t been actively exploited by hackers.

However, this does not rule out the possibility that they will be targeted in the future, so make sure your browser is up to date to version 97.0.4692.71.

To do so, open your browser, go to Chrome in the menu bar, and select “About Chrome.”

You’ll be able to see what version of Chrome you’re using and whether or not your browser is ready for an upgrade.

“Chrome 97.0.4692.71 contains a number of improvements,” Google wrote in a blog post about the update.

There are 37 security fixes included in this update.

“We’d also like to thank all of the security researchers who collaborated with us throughout the development cycle to keep security bugs out of the stable channel.”

Google will not reveal more information about the threats until the majority of users upgrade their browsers, but one is critical, ten are high, and ten are medium.

There’s another reason why users should upgrade to Chrome 97 in addition to fixing all of those bugs.

That’s because Google has just released a new feature that gives users a lot more control over their privacy.

Unlike previous versions of the browser, which only allowed you to delete individual cookies from websites, the most recent update includes a slew of privacy tools that allow you to delete more data that websites try to store.

If you want to give it a shot, go to Settings andgt; Security and Privacy andgt; Site Settings andgt; View Permissions and Data Stored, and then update to version 97.0.4692.71.
