Chrome usually update itself automatically whenever a new version becomes available. The updating process is done in the background which doesn’t interrupt any ongoing work and doesn’t require any action from the users end which is great.

An updated browser means, you are less vulnerable to online threats such as spyware, adware, phishing, browser hijacking and so on. To check if your Google Chrome browser if up to date, you can just type in chrome://chrome in your browser address bar and hit enter.

Most of the time you will find that your browser is up to date but even and updated Chrome browser crashes sometimes which is quite annoying. This usually happens because of some Chrome components that now can be individually checked and updated.

The latest Chrome browser now lets you open the components page in a tab to find information about those components and update them if necessary. Just type in chrome://components in the address bar and hit Enter.

Each of the components will have a ‘Check for update’ button below which you can use to update any of the Chrome component that has an update available.
