Just noticed some subtle changes in the Chrome interface (the loading icon) in addition to the bugfixes.

I have latest version Chrome and https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html still tells me I am vulnerable to logjam attack. It has been telling me this for a while, and I keep expecting a Chrome update to solve that.

 

Is there something I should be doing on my end about this?

Chrome beta Version 45.0.2454.26 beta-m (64-bit) is no longer vulnerable to logjam. I assume that stable version of Chrome 45, whenever that gets released, will also be proof vs. logjam.
