Google Introduces New Version of Chrome With Material Design and Improved Features

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

Google has announced that for Chrome's 10th birthday, it's getting a redesign with a bunch of new features. It includes Google's new Material Design theme, with rounded tabs and a whiter appearance. Support for Google's Chrome AutoFill is also improved. On iOS (but strangely not on Android), the toolbar has been moved to the bottom for easier reach.

If you rely on Google Chrome's built-in password manager, then you'll be happy to know that the latest stable update also brings a few usability improvements. It can more accurately fill in your passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers as all this information is saved to your Google account, and can also now be accessed directly from the Chrome toolbar.

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. Developers have been tinkering with this on Chrome OS for some time and have created a number of different options depending on whether you're using a tablet, clamshell or convertible.

The US firm says they are making it even more convenient to use as it will now show you answers directly without having to open a new tab. Just type the website and the Omnibar will tell if you already have that tab open and offer to take you there.

Funeral for John McCain draws heart-felt speeches, political criticism
She said that when she asked her father what she should say in his eulogy, he replied, "Show them how tough you are". Former President Barack Obama noted during his eulogy: "So much of our politics can seem small and mean and petty".

The updates don't stop there, and Google has further refined its Omnibox - the search bar at the top of the browser. To keep things fresh, the Chrome team has introduced some new features and a spruced up UI that is rolling out to Windows, Linux and Mac users as we speak. Previously, the tiles on the new tab page were automatically generated based on the sites you commonly visit. And finally, you can now customize the background of a newly-opened tab with your own photo.

If you're a Chromie like us, a lot of these features may appear familiar as we have been reporting on them in upcoming versions of Chrome OS.

Click Update Google Chrome. On the desktop, the tabs have been redesigned to be more modern and consistent, to match with all the other Material Design elements of the browser. But as Chrome evolves to better understand what tasks you're trying to get done, it can help manage all this complexity for you as you switch back and forth between hotel research and booking flights. "Already, we're working on integrating augmented reality (AR) into Chrome to bring information that you interact with across the web and put directly into your physical environment", shared Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, VP, Chrome and Chrome OS.

This is a great addition as it will remove the requirement of installing an extension to perform this behavior, which many simply track your searchers or perform other unwanted behavior.
