15th of April 2015 Google will update its web browser Chrome


Starting this Wednesday (15th of April 2015), Google will update its web browser Chrome.

Chrome version 42 contains radical updates, but the most important change for Estonia is being made in the way the ID-card interacts with the browser during digital signing.

Chrome version 42 will require end-users to update their ID-software. This must be done at installer.id.ee after Chrome has been updated. More detailed instructions you can find in the article http://www.id.ee/?lang=en&id=36600
