Google Chrome Gets New Design, Smarter Suggestions, Increased Security

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

This version comes with a bunch of new features including a new user interface design, better password management, security, and customization.

This week is the Google Chrome browser's tenth anniversary, and Google is celebrating with the release of Chrome 69.

The screenshot that you see above depicts the new default design of the Google Chrome web browser on desktop operating systems. Now, instead of having to manually find a tab yourself or head to Google's search engine to look something up, you can just use the Omnibox.

Kevin Spacey will not face charges over Los Angeles sexual assault claim
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office made no comments Tuesday on the merits of the accusations. D.A.'s office said that "the reporting party has declined to be interviewed by the investigating officer".


Available now by updating to version 69, this new version of Chrome delivers change in areas that are increasingly important for today's users, that weren't as important a decade ago. One of Google's biggest focuses in 2017 has been their push to get all of the web encrypted through SSL. Chrome can't actually block you from doing so.

We've also significantly improved the way Chrome handles passwords. The one feature that seems to have not made it into this stable version is the "invisible" single tab design.

And now Google has started to roll out the highly-anticipated redesign for Chrome that replaces sharp edges with rounded corners and introduces a look that is whiter overall.

Amazon follows Apple to cross trillion-dollar milestone
On August 2 , Apple became the first USA company to reach a total market capitalization of $1 trillion. Shares in the world's largest online retailer last traded up 1.4 percent at $2,041.68.


The redesign brings reshaped tabs, different colors, and a multitude of new icons for Chrome's various menus.

If you ever use the Google Search bar on your phone, this next snippet will look very familiar. "With the power of AR and Chrome, you'd be able to place a virtual rendition of a couch in your living room, right from your smartphone". Unlike most of the Chrome upgrades we see roughly every six weeks, this update is packed to the brim with new features. You can now create and manage shortcuts to your favorite websites directly from the new tab page. This, in turn, will allow you to navigate across lots of tabs more seamlessly.

Chrome now also packs a new UI, which ensures the browser can more accurately fill in passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers - so that "you can breeze through online checkout forms". This is a great addition as it will remove the requirement of installing an extension to perform this behavior, which many simply track your searchers or perform other unwanted behavior. The password manager can auto-generate strong passwords and save them in Chrome's autofill memory.

Etan Thomas on Colin Kaepernick: 'A very good business move by Nike'
The source says Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. An independent arbitrator ruled last month that his collusion grievance could proceed to trial.


The search bar - which is commonly known as the Omnibox - can now show more information without needing to open a new tab. Simply type a question into the browser, and if Google can pull an easy to display answer, it will display it directly in the search results as shown in the image above.
