Google Chrome now shows search result answers in the omnibox by default

Google Chrome

Google has launched its latest version of Chrome, which features a new design, password manager, and more. This version comes with a bunch of new features including a new user interface design, better password management, security, and customization.

In addition to the Omnibox, Google also changed how it labels HTTPS URLs.

Chrome now has a totally redesigned system for autofilling stuff like passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers - all saved to your Google Account of course. That said, Chrome will still save any password you wish, and then make it available on PC and phone.

It's hard to believe that it's been ten whole years, but the Google Chrome browser launched on September 2, 2008. One of Google's biggest focuses in 2017 has been their push to get all of the web encrypted through SSL. Chrome 69 will require its users to manually activate Flash every time they visit a particular website instead of being able to enable it once per site.

Humans are bad at passwords, which is why businesses and services like password managers exist and thrive. Sometimes the tricks are as simple as creating a long domain name that's too wide to be shown in a mobile browser; other times, such as in the above picture, more nefarious techniques are used.

Chrome Passwords

Google Chrome's new look brings a new design for desktop, Android and iOS users. There is also an avatar added to the upper right side near the menu which will allow the users to quickly access their account related details like passwords or payment info. "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". AI is already working for you in features like Google Translate in Chrome, which uses a state-of-the-art AI-based translation engine to bring all the world's information to you in a language you can understand, right in your browser. There's a new tab page with more customisation options, and a horizontal tab switcher as well.

Tab backgrounds can now be customised with the photo of the user's choice and shortcuts can be created directly from the new tab. While Firefox and Opera have undergone major redesigns, and newer browsers with their own looks, like Edge and Vivaldi, have appeared, Chrome's angle-tabbed appearance has remained pretty much the same for a decade.

There's also an upcoming feature that we've seen in chrome://flags that will give you results of items in your Google Drive folders.

The search and address bar is now more convenient.

Google Chrome calls the box that combines the search and address bar into one the "omnibox" and it will now be even more convenient to use.
