Google's Chrome 47 web browser, include 41 security fixes, 22 of which generated $105,000 in cash for security researchers.Chrome Browser

One of the changes include the removal of notifications. The removal of the notifications center is part of a wider effort among Chrome developers to eliminate features that aren't used frequently and keep Chrome code as simple as possible.

While not all new features of Chrome 47 have been revealed, the list of security fixes should be enough to justify the update if users have intentionally turned off automatic updates in Chrome. According to Google, Chrome 47 includes 41 security fixes, though the company has detailed just 22 that were reported by external security researchers and qualified for payment under its vulnerability rewards program.

The largest single payout was $11,337 for a "high severity" use-after-free issue in AppCache.

In total, Google lists 13 high-severity bugs that have been fixed, six medium severity issues and three low-severity ones.

The 22 bugs for which Google has listed a payout amounted to a total of just over $105,000 for Chrome 47.

It also listed two more bug fixes that its internal teams developed, which included multiple vulnerabilities in Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Additional security fixes were also delivered to Chrome 47 before it reached the stable channel.
