Google’s 10 year browser anniversary comes with a new look for users

Google Chrome Material Design 2

Google said this is in an effort to boost productivity for users. The Chrome 69 build also brings better password management, improved autofill, a faster and smarter Omnibox, and has introduced many new security measures as well.

This feature also updates the Google password functions in your browser. One of Google's biggest focuses in 2017 has been their push to get all of the web encrypted through SSL.

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

According to Adrienne Porter Felt, an engineering manager on the Chrome security team, the company is planning major changes to URLs. Users will notice the rounded corners and tabs immediately, with a whole new color palette making the experience feel much more muted.

As Chrome gained popularity, the browsers market share continued to grow exponentially and today holds more than 60% of that share on desktop and over 50% on mobile. The most important (or at least, the most noticeable) updates for the average user are likely the many design overhauls Chrome has received during the last decade. To put all of these new features to the test yourself, be sure to update your Chrome browser now. There is also an avatar added to the upper right side near the menu which will allow the users to quickly access their account related details like passwords or payment info.

The first thing users will notice are the new rounded tabs at the top of their browser when they open a webpage, which bring a cleaner and more modern look.

Now, in Chrome 69, HTTPS sites no longer have the "secure" wording in the address bar.

Sex assault case against Kevin Spacey dropped by Los Angeles prosecutors
The former House of Cards star has been accused by multiple men of sexual assault and misconduct during the #MeToo movement. In October, actor Anthony Rapp said that in 1986, when Rapp was 14, Spacey made sexual advances toward him in a hotel room.

Chrome 69 also provides greater customization for the new tab page. You can take personalization to a new level in the latest Chrome by customizing the background of new blank tabs you open and adding your own shortcut to your favorite websites.

Google Chrome's Omnibox, its combined search and address bar, will now surface relevant answers to your questions directly in the Omnibox without having to complete a search query.

You'll soon be able to search through your Google Drive right from the search bar.

Staying secure on the web means using strong and unique passwords for every different site and Chrome will now generate one for you which is instantly saved within the browser.

These passwords are also synchronized to your Google account so that they are available on other devices that you use Chrome.

If you search for a website you already have open (we're looking at you, tab-crazy people who always complain about Chrome being slow) then Chrome will now give you the option to "Switch to tab".
