NEW Google Chrome 🖥️✨
new google chrome
A new Google Chrome has arrived.

The browser loved by 55%+ of the world has a completely new design, focused on productivity and security:
  • Tabs have been completely redesigned to let you quickly scroll through your open windows. Tab hoarders everywhere rejoice.
  • The in-browser password, address, and credit card number manager is rebuilt to make it easier to spend all your money while surfing the internet.
  • Answers now appear directly in your omnibox (where you'd typically enter a URL). Instead of having to Google a question, Chrome will pull the answer up automatically without loading a full web page.
Up next on Google's to-do list? Killing the URL. 😬

"They’re hard to read, it’s hard to know which part of them is supposed to be trusted, and in general I don’t think URLs are working as a good way to convey site identity. We want to challenge how URLs should be displayed." – Adrienne Porter Felt, Chrome's engineering manager

They've tried this before: in 2014, the team tested the "origin chip", a feature that only displayed the main domain on your current tab. It was quickly deprecated and never launched publicly. We'll have to wait and see what their next iteration looks like. AOL Keywords were farrrr ahead of their time. 😂

The new Google Chrome is live for Mac, PC, Android, and iOS today. Do you like the new design? Share your thoughts with the community.
