Security Fixes and Rewards
Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We will also retain restrictions if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.
This update includes 39 security fixes. Below, we highlight fixes that were contributed by external researchers. Please see the Chrome Security Page for more information.

We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel.

As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes:

[955186] Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives

Many of our security bugs are detected using AddressSanitizer, MemorySanitizer,UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer, Control Flow Integrity, libFuzzer, or AFL.

Google Chrome 74 Now Synchronizes with Windows 10 Dark Mode
For those users who upgraded to Chrome 74 and dark mode was still not working, you could force dark mode by modifying the Chrome shortcut and adding the --force-dark-mode command line argument as shown below.
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --force-dark-mode
This Chrome setting, though, just forced Dark Mode to be turned on and did not synchronize with Windows 10's color settings.

If you have been waiting for Windows synchronization, you will be happy to know that it has now rolled out to more users and should be readily available to most people, if not everyone. This was tested in Chrome 74.0.3729.108, which is the latest version.
