Find one that's newer that support your claim? :P

Dunno if one is more secure than the other, since Chrome derive from Chromium. Only major difference is probably one is open source, the other isn't.

I don't need to support my claim, I'm just asking for a recent article. There has been 18 releases (according to wikipedia) since then.

And after reading the article, the small section on security is entirely speculative, it cites no actual security issues, only concerns because it's closed source which is fair enough to have, if you can't see the source code, you can't audit it. I prefer open source of course, but even if it is open, I myself can't verify all the software even that I install, I don't know how to read C/python/java etc. I just rely on the greater community to audit the code that's out there and find vulnerabilities, like I rely on Google to check for vulnerabilities in Chrome, and they do, vigorously: $35,000USD handed out in rewards to people auditing code to find vulnerabilities so they can be patched: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.co ... pdate.html

I know other projects do this too but the point is when you're offering money, people tend to spend time sifting your code, finding issues, and reporting them for the $$.

Isn't the auditing done on Chromium, not chrome?

Not entirely sure, but Chrome is obviously built from Chromium with it's extra closed-source items like Flash.

Trying to install Google Chrome stable, according to the Wiki article, but getting an error:
http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/p ... _amd64.deb is not found. The fallback isn't available either: "https://www.solus-project.com/source/go ... _amd64.deb": [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 404 - Not Found.

Should something be updated? Google recently issued version 50... Thanks in advance!

Yea, they remove the Deb files for old versions. I updated the 3rd-Party repo, try again :D

Not yet, working on it, I have a tool to update all 3rd party apps and it's mostly ready.
Hi Solus people,
any news regarding how to keep Chrome updated? I'm looking forward to it :)
Cheers

Snap/flatpak will replace current 3rd-party, so this will be what will provide updates to the packages in future.
