Google Chrome Gets New Design, Smarter Suggestions, Increased Security

  • 4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

For that, we are exceedingly grateful.

Chrome has looked pretty similar for a decade, but version 69, a 10th anniversary overhaul, is a significant update.

You can see a video of the attack in action below. It's releasing new tools for developers who contribute to its Chromium project too.

We've said this many times before, but it's worth repeating.

Unfortunately, this goes against our preferred security, even though Google encrypts passwords, because storing them in the browser creates a treasure trove for malware to pilfer that sensitive data.

Chrome has now a fresh face with more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette. "Our newest update includes a refreshed design that lets you navigate the web faster, and a completely revamped password manager and updated autofill so you can get things done more easily and securely".

Web browsers are one of the most important apps on any device. Thankfully, they nixed that change and I'm glad they did.

While the auto-answer feature worked well when I tested it out in Chrome Canary (giving me the Yankees score from last night, and completing mathematic equations), its use of already-opened tabs didn't work during as well.

The rounded shapes extend all the way to the recently used pages. Unlike most of the Chrome upgrades we see roughly every six weeks, this update is packed to the brim with new features. Google VP for Product Management Rahul Roy-Chowdhury shares the things they are cooking up in the Chrome kitchen.

ER Star Vanessa Marquez Shot and Killed by Police
If she told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. 'I was an actor and only an actor. The actress reportedly wrote on her Facebook page that she had been struggling with Celiac disease and seizures.

The password manager in Chrome is also getting smarter.

Chrome has improved its password handler so that when you sign up for new sites it will recommend a strong and hard to brute force password.

Also, according to Adrienne Porter Felt, Chrome's engineering manager, the Chrome team plans to "rethink" URLs altogether.

Google has improved the Omnibox to make it even more easier to use.

Definitions and other information is available from the Omnibox.

And you can now customise the background of a newly-opened tab with a photo of your choice.

There's also an upcoming feature that we've seen in chrome://flags that will give you results of items in your Google Drive folders.

The new Chrome will allow more customisations like enabling shortcut creation and management from the new tab page. "AI is already working for you in features like Google Translate in Chrome, which uses a state-of-the-art AI-based translation engine to bring all the world's information to you in a language you can understand, right in your browser", writes Roy.

Head over to chrome://dino and start the game with your space bar.
