Stable Channel Update

Description

The Chrome team is happy to announce the promotion of Chrome 43 to the stable channel for Windows, Mac and Linux. Chrome 43.0.2357.65 contains a number of fixes and improvements. A list of changes is available in the [log](<https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+log/42.0.2311.0..43.0.2357.0?pretty=fuller&n=10000>). **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 [37 security fixes](<https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/list?can=1&q=type%3Abug-security+label%3ARelease-0-M43&sort=id+-security_severity+-secseverity+-owner+-modified&colspec=ID+Pri+Status+Summary+Modified+OS+M+Security_severity+Security_impact+Owner+Reporter&cells=tiles>).

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. The total value of additional rewards and their recipients will updated here when all reports have gone through the reward panel. As usual, our ongoing internal security work was responsible for a wide range of fixes: * [[489518](<https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=489518>)] CVE-2015-1265: Various fixes from internal audits, fuzzing and other initiatives. * Multiple vulnerabilities in V8 fixed at the tip of the 4.3 branch (currently 4.3.61.21). Many of the above bugs were detected using [AddressSanitizer](<http://code.google.com/p/address-sanitizer/wiki/AddressSanitizer>) or [MemorySanitizer](<https://code.google.com/p/memory-sanitizer/wiki/MemorySanitizer>).
