Chrome for Android update rolling out, brings back Doodles on new tabs and more

The Google Chrome browser for Android has been updated to version 36.0.1985.122.

So what’s new here? While not a major update, there are tons of bug fixes and performance improvements, improved text rendering on non-mobile optimized sites and the return of Doodles to the new tab page. Additionally, the latest update is said to include security fixes for the following issues:
  • [$3000][352083] High CVE-2014-3159: Omnibox URL Spoofing (Android). Credit to Keita Haga.
  • [334204] Medium CVE-2014-3161: Same origin policy bypass (Android). Credit to HÃ¥vard Molland from Opera
As is typical, the update is rolling out in stages so don’t be surprised if it takes a few days to reach you.
