Chrome for Android updated, includes tweaks and better sandboxing

Google updates Chrome for Android, sports better sandboxing technology for Jelly Bean, and more

Chrome for Android has finally been updated, not long after the iOS-based version received its much-awaited release. Chrome for Android includes improved sandboxing technology for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.




This will keep your Jelly Bean-based device safer from malicious websites, thanks to the OS' user ID isolation technology. It also integrates location preferences with system level Google apps settings, adds playback controls to YouTube videos when played in fullscreen, and fixes destined for third-party input method editors (IMEs).


There's a few miscellaneous bug fixes and security issues closed, so if you're rocking an Android device, you should check the Play Store right now if you don't have automatic updating enabled.
