With mobile devices becoming more and more popular, it is no surprise to see malicious adware and viruses continue to pop-up through apps and web browsing.  The latest update to the Chrome Browser for Android beefs up its security by relying heavily on Android’s sandbox technology.

Mobile threats on your device will be contained through Chrome before affecting other processes on your device.  For users running Android 4.1, there will be a seamless integration of Chrome security to protect your handset.

Other updates include location preferences in Google app’s settings, enhanced YouTube video playback in full screen mode, video continues to play through screenlock/unlock, and third party keyboards (such as SwiftKey 3) received increased support.

Overall, the Chrome update sounds like a nice one, where it offers some new features and improves functionality.  Users can download the updated browser immediately from Google Play.
