Chrome 69: Your guide to the latest version of Google's browser

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

That's version 69, if you haven't updated Chrome on your desktop yet, which should be available on all platforms - the mobile version has also been updated.

On the desktop, all you need to click on the three-dot icons on the right-hand side of your Chrome window, select Settings, click the Menu Bar, and click About Chrome.

The biggest change, Chrome now features more rounded shapes, new icons and a new colour palette. No sign of a dark mode, outside of Incognito mode. The new tab page can also be personalised now with a background of your choice. Those using iOS will now notice that the toolbar for the browser has been brought to the bottom of the screen, making it more convenient and easier to navigate.

You might also notice the shape of your tabs has changed. In June, it was possible to enable this new UI with a Chrome flag which no longer became necessary when the new UI was enabled by default in the Canary channel.

A decade ago, people weren't as aware of database leaks, which wind up placing your user account names and passwords on the auction block on the seedier corners of the web.

The latest version of Chrome has a new Material Design finish, new password management features, an improved Omnibox, and more. The aim is to provide a simpler look that will hopefully boost overall productivity. The brand new Google Chrome browser is rolling out for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, and Linux running devices.

Security is another major thrust of Chrome 69.

Also, according to Adrienne Porter Felt, Chrome's engineering manager, the Chrome team plans to "rethink" URLs altogether. But if you are forgoing a complete password management experience for some reason (you really shouldn't, though!), Chrome 69 will make password creation and management within the browser much more useful.

Here's what's in the new update which includes a refreshed design, a revamped password manager and updated autofill. Apart from that, Google has also introduced many improvements like secure and easy mobile payments via third-party apps, support for password generation on more sites, and general stability and performance improvements.

If you're searching for something that brings a result that's already open in another tab, Chrome will let you know and let you "Switch to tab" just like that.

While the auto-answer feature worked well when I tested it out in Chrome Canary (giving me the Yankees score from last night, and completing mathematic equations), its use of already-opened tabs didn't work during as well.

To make Chrome more personal you can now create and manage shortcuts to your favourite websites directly from the new tab page - simply open a new tab and "Add shortcut".
