Google has released the stable Chrome version 8.0.552.237 for all platforms. Chrome OS has also been updated, to 8.0.552.334.

Security fixes and rewards: "We're delighted to offer our first "elite" $3133.7 Chromium Security Reward to Sergey Glazunov. Critical bugs are harder to come by in Chrome, but Sergey has done it. Sergey also collects a $1337 reward and several other rewards at the same time, so congratulations Sergey!," stated Google.

"Also of note is a clarification on our default charity policy. Some researchers are unable to accept rewards, or even provide a suggestion for a charity. In such cases, it feels like a shame to lose a charitable contribution so we'll default reward money to the Red Cross."

These releases contain the security fixes listed below:
