Google today released Chrome 71, the latest version of its browser, a version that focuses mainly on enhancing Chrome's security.
There are several security updates in this new version of Chrome, but one of the most important is the one made in the embedded browser filtering system.
As announced on early November, this update will enhance Chrome's ability to detect sites that display overly aggressive or misleading ads and pop-ups. Google reports that they are creating "abusive experiences" for Chrome users. From this version, then, such windows will stop appearing, until the advertisers think of something else.
With Chrome 71, Google is reportedly going to stop websites that use tricks to trick users into subscribing to programs that charge the end-user's phone.
Google plans to issue a full-page warning - similar to the one displayed for HTTPS errors before users open such pages.
Google also limits the ability of sites to "talk."
Another change removes the Inline Install API, a feature of Chrome that allows users to install Chrome extensions hosted on the official Web Store, but when navigating other sites.
Last but not least, Chrome 71 brings bug fixes for 43 security issues, broken down more detailed here.
With today's version, Chrome's new version number reaches 71.0.3578,80. The full changelog of Chrome 71 is available here.
