    Google has recently patched 30 vulnerabilities in its popular 'Chrome' web
    browser and has paid its highest bounty total ever for the bugs that people
    filed with its security team. Chrome is now the second most popular web
    browser in use in the UK.

    The company issued an update to Chrome 13 on 2 August, adding Instant Pages
    to the "stable" channel of the browser. The feature proactively pre-loads
    some search results to speed up web browsing.

    Fourteen of the 30 vulnerabilities patched today were rated "high," the
    second-most-serious ranking in Google's four-step scoring system, while
    nine were pegged "medium" and the remaining seven were labelled "low." None
    of the flaws were ranked "critical".

    The current version of Chrome on your computer should be 13.0.782.107 (use
    the 'Spanner' icon and then locate [About Google Chrome].
