"Chrome 71.0.3578.80 contains a number of fixes and improvements -- a list of changes is available in the log. Watch out for upcoming Chrome and Chromium blog posts about new features and big efforts delivered in 71," the tech giant wrote in a blog post late on Tuesday.

In the new version, users would be warned when a site appears to be hiding the real costs and terms for a transaction.
