Google Chrome gets slick new update for its 10th birthday

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

We don't have any information about when these initiatives will be completed, but we're confident that Google will continue to make Chrome a better product.

If you rely on Google Chrome's built-in password manager, then you'll be happy to know that the latest stable update also brings a few usability improvements.

Once the password has been created, Chrome will save it to both your browser and Google account. One of Google's biggest focuses in 2017 has been their push to get all of the web encrypted through SSL.

Chrome revamped its autofill and password manager to be more accurate across different sites. Users will notice the rounded corners and tabs immediately, with a whole new color palette making the experience feel much more muted.

Chrome has looked pretty similar for a decade, but version 69, a 10th anniversary overhaul, is a significant update.

After testing custom wallpapers from Google Photos and custom shortcuts in the Canary version, Google is now rolling out these features to the stable version of Chrome. Google has also simplified prompts, menus and URLs in the address bar. In case you're wondering about performance, Google says it continues to work on improving startup time, latency, memory use and more, although it doesn't seem we'll see changes there to this particular build.

Easier personalization (shortcuts, new tab background). Previously, the tiles on the new tab page were automatically generated based on the sites you commonly visit. Google says that it will now show you answers directly in the address bar without having to open a new tab - "Rich Results". The address bar's been also tweaked, with the Omnibox (suggestions bar) now giving you intelligent suggestions.

40 other security fixes have been managed by the Chrome team, many of them found by external security researchers. However, new to Chrome 69, when you're logging into a website for the first time Chrome will recommend a secure password for you. Also clearing your browser's saved passwords and not saving credentials for unsecure HTTP pages, deleting saved open networks and not allowing automatic re-connection to networks, and changing pre-shared keys and router admin credentials as soon as possible.

"Plus, a bonus if you find yourself with two dozen tabs open across three browser windows: Search for a website in your Omnibox and Chrome will tell you if it's already open and let you jump straight to it with Switch-to-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.
