  • Implemented the Strict Secure Cookies specification which forbids insecure HTTP sites from setting cookies with the "secure" attribute. In some cases, this will prevent an insecure site from setting a cookie with the same name as an existing "secure" cookie from the same base domain.
Fixed:-
  • Improved text input for third-party keyboard layouts on Windows. This will address some keyboard layouts that
  • have chained dead keys
  • input two or more characters with a non-printable key or a dead key sequence
  • input a character even when a dead key sequence failed to compose a character
Changes:-
  • Removed support for Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI) plugins other than Flash. Silverlight, Java, Acrobat and the like are no longer supported.
  • Improved experience for downloads:
  • Notification in the toolbar when a download fails
  • Quick access to five most recent downloads rather than three
  • Larger buttons for canceling and restarting downloads
  • Removed Battery Status API to reduce fingerprinting of users by trackers
Developer:-
  • Improved security for screen sharing, which now shows a preview and no longer requires a whitelisted domain
