Hi Stephen,

qutebrowser uses QtWebEngine as backend, and QtWebEngine uses Chromium.
At this moment, QtWebEngine uses Chromium 56.0.2924.122
You can see detailed information by `:version` command in qutebrowser.

My understanding is this is not qutebrowser's problem, but QtWebEngine's.

QtWebEngine team does update to the latest Chromium version in use
before a Qt release. After a release some bug fixes and security patches
are backported [1]
