Release Highlights

Crash Fixes

Release 154.0 had a few browser crashes, including a crash on startup
on tablet PCs running Windows Vista. We fixed the new crashes and
154.3 should be much more stable.

Plugin Performance Fixes

There are more plugin performance updates in this release, including
fixing some videos that halt after 1 second (r3123, Issue 115) and
plugins causing the browser to become unresponsive (r3323).

Safer Downloads

r3228 Changes the download behavior for files that could execute code
(exe, dll, bat, etc.). These files are now downloaded to
unconfirmed_*.download files. In the browser, you're asked if you want
to accept the download. Only after you click Save is the
unconfirmed_*.download file converted to the real file name.
Unconfirmed downloads are deleted when Google Chrome exits.

There were many more minor changes. A more complete list can be found
