The report further specifies that, as of January 1, 2022, a total of 303 vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chrome. A number that doubles those discovered in browsers such as Firefox and Edge (with 117 and 103 respectively). In total, Chrome accumulates 3,159 vulnerabilities throughout its history, according to data provided by the VulDB database. Other browsers, such as Opera, have not even reported vulnerabilities at all this year.
On the other hand, specialists talk about the importance of keeping the browser always up to date. This is extremely necessary because each new version introduces improvements and fixes to vulnerabilities discovered in previous editions.
