Windows 7: Chrome Gets XSS Filter and Starts Disabling Outdated Plug-Ins

Chrome Gets XSS Filter and Starts Disabling Outdated Plug-Ins


The highly anticipated feature of automatically disabling outdated plug-ins has been introduced in the latest Google Chrome Canary Build along with WebKit's cross-site scripting filter.

Back in June, Google improved Chrome plug-in security by introducing an integrated Flash Player version, a sandboxed PDF reader, and announced plans to start disabling outdated plug-ins automatically.

"Medium-term, Google Chrome will start refusing to run certain out-of-date plug-ins (and help the user update)," the company said at the time.

It looks like developers moved pretty fast and an initial implementation of the technology was added to the Google Chrome Labs page in the latest Canary Build.

Labs is a new location in the Chrome interface from where advanced features can be turned on without needing to use the traditional command-line flags.

The Labs page is available in Chrome 7 and can be accessed by typing about:labs in the address bar (Omnibox).

The Canary builds are Chrome releases considered even more experimental than Dev channel ones and are pushed out every few days.
