    Just a kind reminder, it’s that time of the year where depending on which hemisphere you are in it’s either a bit nippy, a bit tropical or a bit warm.

      The latest patched Chrome version for Windows is 108.0.5359.95.
      (108.0.5359.72 is already obsolete)

      If you want that 108.0.5359.95 version NOW, instead of a few days or a week from now, you can download it from:

      https://www.techspot.com/downloads/4718-google-chrome-for-windows.html

      But BEFORE running that setup file, examine it with your local AntiVirus and also upload it to VirusTotal for your (and my) peace of mind!

        I don’t recommend installing software from a location other than the vendor as a general rule

        Surely you would check from within Chrome instead of downloading a separate file – of dubious provenance?

        cheers, Paul

          Surely you would check from within Chrome

          Not surely at all. There’s this error I still get and can’t get rid of. (Am I the only one?) Hence I have to work-around …

          An error occurred while checking for updates: Update check failed to start (error code 3: 0x800700C1 — system level).

            @E Pericoloso Sporgersi
            Try working your way through the fix applicable to your issue from:
            https://www.webnots.com/how-to-fix-google-chrome-update-problems/
            If that does not work, try and/or check the others.

            Not good practice to download from 3rd party resources considering the importance of browser integrity, the ramifications are potentially horrendous! Thereagain, it’s your device…and a miscreants opportunity.

      You should also google for images of Croque Madame and Croque Monsieur.

      I am using Windows Xp. I am not impact. I can not install newer browser. I need flash player so I am using an older version of Firefox that support it. Plus using agent switcher to get to load some sites that tell me that my browser is not support. It works fine. I do have ad blocker and noscript so that helps.

      • #2503208

        You are impacted.  I would highly recommend that you look to using Linux instead of an out of date operating system.  You are going to have to convince me that you NEED flash.

      But I do retain one positive note:
      Henceforth I can and shall download the latest manual update from the original developer, i.e. Google

      You can try totally uninstalling Chrome and clean install the latest version.

        Did that. No joy.

        But I’ll try it again one of these days.

        There’s no haste.

          Too late? If you cannot reinstall chrome perhaps your device is already a node blocking chrome alterations? Which is likely why you could not update using the internal chrome updater.
          Run a full system scan and an sfc scannow in an elevated cmd, something is not right there, seriously and Good luck

        Why 2 versions of Chrome..98/99 for Windows ?

        • #2505554

          it’s a “typo” on google team’s part
          only Chrome 108.0.5359.99 is available for Windows as I recently checked myself

          btw, MS Edge also got a recent update – 108.0.1462.46 (released Thu. Dec. 8)
