Google is celebrating Chrome’s 10th anniversary with a redesign. The browser is getting a design overhaul that brings new icons, rounded shapes and new colour palette. The new version is called Chrome 69 and it is now rolling out across desktop, iOS, and Android. The major update is in line with Google’s Material Design approach, which gives the browser a modern touch.
“Today, in honour of Chrome’s 10th birthday, we’re launching several new features,” Rahul Roy Chowdhury, VP of Product Development at Google, stated in a blog post. “Our newest update includes a refreshed design that lets you navigate the web faster, and a completely revamped password manager and updated autofill so you can get things done more easily and securely. And Chrome’s search box (the “Omnibox”) gives you more information directly as you type, saving you even more time”.
Google announced Chrome on September 2, 2008 and over the past few years it has become the world’s most popular browser beating the likes of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) and Mozilla’s Firefox. Here’s what’s new with Chrome 69.
Google Chrome 69: New Password Manager
Google has improved the way Chrome handles passwords. Now when you sign up for new sites it will recommend a strong password. This password will be saved in the built-in password manager so that the next time you visit that site it automatically fills the account credentials. There’s a positive side tostoring these passwords in your Google account – after all, you will be available on Chrome on both desktop and mobile.
