Perhaps, most useful is the "Already Opened" feature in the Omnibox, which will alert us tab warriors of page searches that we now have buried in pile of open tabs.
Chrome has been so pervasive and influential for so long that it's easy to forget how slick, streamlined, and refreshing it felt when it debuted.
The new look, which looks similar to something we saw a couple months ago, will not only be available on PC, but will also span to mobile, being made available for the Chrome app on iOS and Android. It definitely hasn't been smooth-sailing and Chrome still has a lot to do to satisfy many naysayers and critics. Google says that Chrome can recognize sign-in forms more accurately, so you hopefully won't come across sign-in fields that aren't recognized. To keep things fresh, the Chrome team has introduced some new features and a spruced up UI that is rolling out to Windows, Linux and Mac users as we speak.
It's hard to believe that Google Chrome has been around for 10 whole years. You can see it across all platforms-desktop, Android, and iOS-where you'll notice more rounded shapes, new icons and a new colour palette.
Also on the security front, Chrome 69 is another big step in Google's plans to remove Flash from the browser.
Users looking for a taste of this new look have been able to try it out by using Chrome Canary, the public beta version of Chrome.
Although most of the changes are purely aesthetic in nature, some of them will likely help you be more productive in Chrome 69.
Google's Chrome has become the go-to web browser for many. Thus far, Microsoft has seemingly swung and missed on several at-bats with its Edge browser for consumers, but if the Android downloads are any indication, there is interest in new browser experiences; maybe it'll just take 10 years.
If you are now running an older version of Google Chrome, it's incredibly easy to update to Chrome 69. I like how you can now easily switch to synced desktop tabs in the iOS app, plus the placement for a shortcut to search is handy.
The new design is something we've been tracking since it hit Chrome's nightly Canary builds in April. Tabs change from the trapezoidal shape to rectangles with rounded corners, the address bar is round, the omnibox is an actual box now, and there's a new profile button to the right of the menu. "Say you're shopping for a couch online and want to see how it would look in your living room". Whether someone will be annoyed enough to stop using Flash or abandon Chrome depends on the user, of course.
