It’s Wednesday and that means we can expect at least a few minor updates for some of Google’s apps today. First up to bat is the Chrome browser, which is seeing an update to version 36.0.1985.122.

So what’s new here? While not a major update, there are tons of bug fixes and performance improvements, improved text rendering on non-mobile optimized sites and the return of Doodles to the new tab page. Additionally, the latest update is said to include security fixes for the following issues:

  • [$3000][352083] High CVE-2014-3159: Omnibox URL Spoofing (Android). Credit to Keita Haga.
  • [334204] Medium CVE-2014-3161: Same origin policy bypass (Android). Credit to Håvard Molland from Opera

As is typical, the update is rolling out in stages so don’t be surprised if it takes a few days to reach you. As soon as we’re able to get our hands on an APK, we’ll be sure to update this page with a link. If any of our readers have already received the file and are able to share it with us, please contact us with a link or, at the very least, post it for our readers in the comments below.
