Google Designer Hannah Lee spent a year looking at boxes for Chrome 69

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Chrome recently turned 10 years old, which is quite difficult to believe as it seems like only yesterday I was fighting Internet Explorer on Windows XP. In that time, it’s become the most-used web browser, accounting for over 60 percent of web traffic. A month before its release, Internet Explorer and Firefox led with 60.4 percent and 32.4 percent respectively. 

To celebrate, Google released Chrome 69 featuring a radical redesign on all operating systems.

Chrome tests hiding URLs for Google searches

Friday, September 21st, 2018

URLs for Google search results are big, ugly things that contain a lot of information you probably don't need to see most of the time. The team behind Chrome development is looking into remedying that eyesore, though, by showing your search terms in the Omnibox rather than the full URL for the results.

The new functionality is available to play with in Chrome Canary right now, under the flag #enable-query-in-omnibox.

Incognito mode in Google Chrome might become ‘Private mode’

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

For privacy-conscious users, Incognito Mode has long been a favorite feature of Google Chrome. It lets you browse the web without maintaining a history or saving information like cookies and form inputs. Other browsers have tended to call it Private Mode, since that's probably a term more people are familiar with, and it looks like Google might be planning to go down that route too.

A couple of tipsters have noticed that the 'Open in incognito tab' option when you long-press a link has been changed to 'Open in private tab,' which could signal that Google is about to change things up for everyone.

Chrome 70 adds fingerprint login support for Web Authentication, enables TLS 1.3, and more [APK Download]

Friday, September 14th, 2018

Chrome 69 was a massive update, as it brought a brand new interface to both desktop and mobile. Now that v69 is on stable, the beta channel has been updated to version 70. This isn't as big of an update as the previous release, but it still has a few important improvements - particularly for security.

Web Authentication improvements

Chrome 67 added initial support for the Web Authentication API, which allows sites to use something other than usernames and passwords for logging in.

Gmail Offline for Chrome will be discontinued in December

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

The first Chromebooks were extremely dependent on an internet connection, so to help alleviate that problem, Google published a 'Gmail Offline' app on the Chrome Web Store. It allowed users to read and respond to emails while the computer was offline, but the app hasn't been updated since 2013.

Google has announced that Gmail Offline will be removed from the Chrome Web Store in December, because it isn't needed anymore. The new desktop Gmail has an option for offline mode, so a separate Chrome app is no longer necessary.

Microsoft really, really wants you to use its Edge browser. When you search for the Chrome download page in Edge, you get a giant banner telling you how great Edge is.
