After Google’s security update for Chrome, manufacturers of other Chromium-based browsers reacted quite quickly and also provided updates to fix several vulnerabilities.
On June 9th, Google released a first security update for Chrome 102. In it, the Google developers have eliminated seven security holes. Several manufacturers of Chromium-based browsers have now followed suit and updated their software. So far these are Brave, Vivaldi and Opera(!). This time Microsoft (Edge) needs longer than the other manufacturers.
Brave released its new browser version 1.39.122 just one day after Google’s Chrome update. It is also based on Chromium version 102.0.5005.115. The Vivaldi developers even worked weekends. On Sunday June 12th they released Vivaldi 5.3.2679.55 as a result. It contains an even more up-to-date Chromium version: 102.0.5005.125.
▶The latest security updates
On Monday, Opera followed suit and updated its browser to version 88.0.4412.40. As with Chrome and Brave, Chromium version 102.0.5005.115 works in it. For the first time in a long time, the Norwegians have managed to keep up with the others when it comes to security updates. However, they seem to have lost the changelog – albeit with the previous update.
Microsoft, on the other hand, has not yet reacted noticeably. Edge version 102.0.1245.39, which was released at about the same time as Chrome 102.0.5005.115, is still based on a Chromium release from May. In any case, this follows from the associated security report and the browser identifier (user agent) transmitted by Edge, even if the two do not match again. Since Microsoft is holding its Patch Day tonight, an Edge update may also come out of it.
Microsoft updated Edge just before Patch Day. The new Edge version 102.0.1245.41 is based on Chromium 102.0.5005.124. Similar to Vivaldi, Microsoft is using a more up-to-date basis than Chrome this time.
