Google has fixed several high risk flaws in the stable and beta versions of Chrome 6.

One of the fixes, for the Mac version of the browser, was identified as critical, while there were numerous fixes for critical flaws across all platforms.

The critical bug was found by Sergey Glazunov and “remy.saissy”, winning them a $500 reward each.

A bug hunter known as kuzzcc raked in a very nice $2,500 for discovering five flaws including a use-after-free condition in SVG styles which attracted $1,000 of the total reward.

Google has also announced Graph Your Inbox, a new extension for Chrome which analyses your emails and produces a graph.

It allows users to set up queries, such as a search for a particular sender, or for emails labelled important.

Graph Your Inbox can be downloaded from the Chrome directory.

Google is keen to point out that there are no privacy issues with Graph Your Inbox.

On the site it says: ‘Note: We take your privacy extremely seriously. This extension does not save any personal information and does not send any personal information to any server. It does not request or record your email password. This extension does not modify the Gmail website or your email in any way.’
