We are pleased to announce the arrival of our latest version, packed with enhancements, security updates, and fixes to provide you with an even better browsing experience. This version will roll out over the upcoming days. Kindly peruse the release notes below for a detailed overview of the changes.

1. Chromium Major Update: Our development team has diligently incorporated a significant update to the underlying Chromium engine. This upgrade empowers the browser with enhanced performance, ensuring faster loading times, improved stability, and increased compatibility with modern web technologies.

2. Latest Chromium Security Patch: In our unwavering commitment to your online safety, we have promptly implemented the latest security patch from the Chromium project. This proactive measure fortifies the browser against potential vulnerabilities, safeguarding your sensitive information and protecting you while you explore the vast realms of the internet.

3. Minor Fixes and Improvements: We have dedicated considerable effort to address various minor issues and optimise the overall browsing experience.

Hi,

as mentioned above, this update will roll out over the upcoming days and in your case, it seems that the update is not yet available.

Thank you for your patience.

Thanks for your reply.

I downloaded from your official web site and received the earlier version.

As I said I would have thought the latest version would have been on your official web site.

Must work by downloading  earlier  version from your web site, then wait for it to be updated to latest version.
Not even manually update works.
