Google this week issued Chrome 63 for Windows, macOS and Linux, adding important security enhancements for enterprises to stress the importance the company now puts on the commercial market.

“Starting with [this] release, Site Isolation is now available … [which] renders content for each open website in a separate process, isolated from other websites. This can mean even stronger security boundaries between websites than Chrome’s existing sandboxing technology,” wrote Matt Blumberg, product manager for Chrome, in a post to a company blog.

Chrome updates in the background, so most users can simply relaunch the browser to get the latest version. To manually manage an update, select “About Google Chrome” from the Help menu under the vertical ellipsis at the upper right. The ensuing page either shows the browser has been updated or displays the download-upgrade process before presenting a “Relaunch” button. New to Chrome? It can be downloaded from this Google site.

The Mountain View, Calif. company updates Chrome every six to seven weeks; the last time it upgraded the browser, to version 63, was Oct. 17, or seven weeks before its Wednesday refresh.
