Google paid out $3500 to security researchers who helped make Chrome for Android safer
The only wrinkle is that this new “innovative multi-process architecture” that makes the sandboxing better is only available for devices with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Other changes to Chrome for Android M18.1 include YouTube fixes. Now video controls work in full screen mode and videos continue playing after a screen lock/unlock. Also, Google has modified the way it checks your location-aware preferences. Chrome now uses the system-level Google apps location setting. Finally, Chrome will now work better with third party keyboard apps (e.g., third-party IMEs).
