The Dapper Chrome

As Chrome turns 10, it has decided to upgrade the appearance of the Search engine and added several features that improve the browsing experience. The icons and tabs have a more rounded external with a dash of new colors, keeping the simplicity of the URLs, prompts, and menu intact. The tabs will now hold the icons of the corresponding websites in such a way that the accessibility and visibility are better for the users. In iOS supplemented mobiles, Chrome will be seen at the bottom of the toolbar within easy reach.

Easy access

Most of our insecurities lie with the breach of privacy that internet services and websites have shown all these years to their users. Whether or not one is safe while he or she is using personal details is a matter of great concern. Chrome has introduced features by which the passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers will be automatically made available to the necessary fields in the corresponding websites by the automatic availability of this information directly from the Google account, by accessing it from the toolbar.

Easy Access

They have also promised that the passwords would be more secure and there will be an auto-generation of the passwords by Chrome itself, the memory of which shall be readily accessible in the laptop, computer or phone, the next time we sign in after the change. The password manager thus can provide a better encrypted and stronger password for us.

One stop solution-Omnibox

The new feature of the Omnibox that has been grafted in the new Chrome has rolled the address bar and search bar into one, increasing the efficiency of the search operation. All answers like translations of words to answers in Quora to the weather report shall be available in that one box.

Amidst the rush and hustle of multiple tabs and browser windows, if a website is to be opened and it is already active in some other window, then Chrome shall directly allow hopping into that page using “switch to tab”. With the upcoming improvements and innovations, it is expected that files in Google Drive can soon be searched in Omnibox itself making it the one-stop solution.

Customization skills

Making Chrome easily customizable is one of the new additions to the 10th birthday present. Different users have different needs; hence, this flexibility provided by Google Chrome will come in handy. The shortcuts of the favorite websites can be created and managed directly from a new tab page by the “add shortcut” option. Our favorite pictures can now be made by the background wallpaper of a new tab and this is one of the most visually attractive features added by the company.

The backstage scenes of Chrome

Besides the USPs that have been loaded to the new Chrome, which makes navigation interesting, easier and meaningful, there are certain other background functionalities added by Chrome like the addition of the more secure HTTPS, effective ad blockers, site isolation that provides protection from Spectre, VR, and AR browsing are effective among others.

Chrome has attributed and acknowledged most of these developments to the developer community for whom some of the updates have been churned out especially like the new CSS features, enhanced performance tracking functions, and also the Chrome Dino, the password generator we spoke of before.
