4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

We first spotted evidence for this happening back in April.

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

We've also significantly improved the way Chrome handles passwords.

To commemorate its ten year milestone, Google is rolling out some new UI designs that should help users search more productivity and conveniently.

If you're a Chromie like us, a lot of these features may appear familiar as we have been reporting on them in upcoming versions of Chrome OS.

You can download Chrome here and below we have outlined some of the major changes in this release. The new tab design, for example, makes it easier to see sites' icons. Google also mentions that it is experimenting with under-the-hood changes to improve Chrome's overall performance that are covered in detail on its developer blog. It can more accurately fill in your passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers as all this information is saved to your Google account, and can also now be accessed directly from the Chrome toolbar.

Google's Chrome has become the go-to web browser for many.

He is up and running in terms of goals this season, but questions have been raised about Harry Kane's general fitness. Deeney's weight loss has been well publicised recently and it is clearly paying off for the forward.

I thought I was in love but whatever. "I then saw a picture of a girl on a court on his story at 2am", she wrote on Instagram. Lil Xan later denied that he broke up with Noah because of the meme, and said it was because she was "all over some dude".

Trump weighs in on NBC-Ronan Farrow dispute
It will surprise no one that they were dishonest in their dealings with us, often mischaracterizing our brief conversations. However, we've watched with disappointment as unfounded intimations and accusations have traveled through media circles.

I'm personally a big fan of KeePass, but I can appreciate Google's efforts to encourage users to practice better password management.

You can now search for a specific tab within the Omnibox, useful for when you're inundated with tabs too small to read. This new feature allows you customize the new tab page so that it shows the tiles you want and also allows you to edit the names of existing shortcut tiles. Think weather, word translations, info on sporting events, etc. all within the Search bar.

If all you need is a simple answer to a question, Google's combination search bar/address bar, which it calls the Omnibox, will now display relevant information as you type on the Mac. But more than just a new look, the new design also serves a functional objective.

Chrome 69 will require its users to manually activate Flash every time they visit a particular website instead of being able to enable it once per site.

The update to Chrome's user interface brings the browser more in line with the Material Design principles used across Google's products. There's a new birthday edition of the "Offline Dino Game" that'll be available through September. You can select the suggested password or use your own and Chrome can save the password for you. For the average consumer, Google's web browser is already fast enough - it functions perfectly for them. There's a history of vulnerabilities in the password managers built into web browsers, including Chrome.
