Google Chrome is 10 years old and in honour of this the company releases a great redesign of the browser and adds new features. Today, Google announced a list of changes made to the most popular browser, among them, there are both cosmetic and functional.
The appearance and elements of the browser have become flatter to fit the new ideology of Google – Material Design. These changes can be seen both in the mobile and in the desktop version of the application. Icons on the tabs became even more prominent so that the user did not lose the necessary site when opening a large number of tabs. In the case of menus and other elements, Google has simplified them in all versions of the application.
As for useful features and more noticeable changes?
- The auto start and the password manager were updated. From now on, Chrome can automatically generate a password and attach it to the user’s Google account.
- The search bar, better known as Omnibox, can now display some of the information you are looking for so that the user does not have to navigate to a new tab. This can be useful, for example, if necessary translate a certain word or find out the weather forecast. In addition, Google promises to add the ability to search for files that are stored in the Google Drive user with Omnibox.
- Also, the possibilities for personalization inside the browser have expanded. From now on, each user can create a shortcut for the selected site and set a background image for it.
