Google Chrome was released on September 2, 2008, fast forward 10 years to today, and they have recently released version 69. You might ask what is new in the update? Here are some key features…
- User Interface Changes
The first change you will notice is major UI changes. Originally the tabs within the Chrome browser were trapezoids, now they are rectangles with rounded upper corners. You will also notice whichever tab is active, will be brightened.
Omnibox, Chromes address bar has now been rounded. No more flat left end with a curve! Also when searching certain questions, the answers will appear directly in the address bar.
- Password Generations
Chrome has always had a good and secure password manager. Now you can have Chrome generate you new and secure passwords. Instead of making your password your favorite sports team with a number at the end, you can now have a secure password that will be in Password Manager.
- Bashing HTTP Websites
Chrome will no longer be having the Secured tag for HTTPS websites since HTTPS should be the standard for all websites for best security practices. There will only be a tag when there is an HTTP website. HTTPS means that the traffic gets encrypted, this is better for everyone’s Cyber Security.
These are just some of the new features in version 69. There are also many security patches in this new version of Chrome.
