Stable Channel Update

The Chrome team is delighted to announce the promotion of Chrome 50 to the stable channel for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Chrome 50.0.2661.75 contains a number of fixes and improvements -- a list of changes is available in the log. Watch out for upcoming Chrome and Chromium blog posts about new features and big efforts delivered in 50.

Security Fixes and Rewards

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.

This update includes 20 security fixes. Below, we highlight fixes that were contributed by external researchers. Please see the Chromium security page for more information.

We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel. The total value of additional rewards and their recipients will updated here when all reports have gone through the reward panel.

As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes:
  • [602697] CVE-2016-1659: Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives.

Many of our security bugs are detected using AddressSanitizer, MemorySanitizer, Control Flow Integrity or LibFuzzer.

Just updated, no new design! Everything looks the same. I thought that the new design was supposed to be implemented in chrome 50. Someone please explain

I would love the return of the notification center :(

I think the new Google Chrome design based on material assign is only in version 51 final. But nothing prevents you from typing in the address bar about: // flags and press ctrl + F and type material designer and activate the function with material and chrome restart after pass to use the new designate.

Material Design work is launching in Chrome browser version 50 on Chrome OS. Fear not, the other platforms should be following soon.

On page of Chrome download says is for XP/Vista etc, but I can't install the version 50 on my Windows Vista. Why?!

I know many people have been anxious awaiting the return of the right click spellchecker menu - the unified spellchecker did never work for us multilingual writers. Perfect that it was back implemented! This is very valuable in terms of reduced work load for us. Great!!!

I guess it should be CVE-2016-1659 instead of CVE-2015-1659 (MS IE vulnerability) :)

Support of WinXP ended, OK. But Google for work, MSI Installer DO NOT CHECK target OS and deploy Chrome v50 to Windows XP. WTF?

Oscar, press CTRL/J and see the Downloads Manager. This one surely has a new design, right? It's the material design and I am not sure whether I like it because it really wastes a lot of space.

I have just updated to this version, and now when I want to print, the option to print using the system (i.e. Windows) dialog box is no longer available. I usually print PDFs to read with two pages fitted on one sheet of paper, but that option is not available in the Chrome print dialog box. Is there any way to access the default system print dialog box from within Chrome? If not I will have to save my documents locally and open them with Acrobat Reader in order to print the way I want to - that's quite a laborious process.

What changed visually with this release? All of my preset windows overflow on to other screens, and all of my bookmarks no longer fit on the bookmark bar. Anyone?

Vista Users, use the Chrome Standalone Offline Installer it still works with V50.

An error occurred while checking for updates: Update check failed to start (error code 3: 0x80004002 -- system level).
I keep getting this when I try to update my Chrome for Window.
I've tried all the tips about using an uninstaller, and nothing works.
What else can I do?
I've tried manually going through my registry even.

Hi hello, ever since chrome updated to version 50.0.2661.75 m, it has been hogging a great deal of ram/cpu, and I mean A LOT. How much will depend on the site I am trying to use, but suffice to say it makes chrome (and my computer) really slow.
On top of that I can no longer Report Issues, whether through the key shortcut or chrome/help, I try and nothing happens. Is this just me?

04.23.16 .

I just updated to Chrome Browser Version 50.0.2661.87 m (64-bit)
from within the browser itself on Windows 10 x64 Pro Insider Preview Evaluation Copy . Build 14279. rs1.

This should work fine on Windows 10 10586 th2 (stable ) on the other NTFS volume on this PC and the 3 other normally activated Windows 10 PC 's here.

^^^^ Seems to be working fine so far and looks the same otherwise.
