Google has released an important update for Chrome, which is one of the biggest updates of the famous browser, since it has brought many new features. The new Google Chrome 83 comes with many privacy features and user interface improvements.
This big browser refresh in a single update is due to the fact that Chrome 82 was cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis. But what are the new features this important google chrome update brings?
- Tab Groups
The new Tab Groups feature won’t release the large memory size that chrome is known to use, but it will certainly make things more organized. Tab Groups allows users to group multiple tabs with a single label. A user can also change the color of the record.
- Improved browsing security
Google’s safe browsing feature protects users from known malicious websites and downloads. Chrome has now updated the feature by allowing safe browsing to provide real-time protection.
Before you visit an “unusual” website or download a file, Google will share additional information with secure browsing to check for malicious activity. The result of course is that you will be sending data browsing information to the browser and that is why this feature is optional.
- Block third-party cookies
While some browsers track your data in incognito mode, others try to protect it. Chrome 83 has an option to block all third-party cookies in incognito mode.
- Delete cookies per website
A feature that was already available to Firefox users was finally added to Google Chrome. Users can now delete the cookies of a single website as opposed to being forced to delete all cookies at once.
- Extension button
In the new version of Chrome 83, extensions are located under a single icon on the browser toolbar. However, users can pin their favorite extensions to the toolbar.
- YouTube online video-sharing platform in numbers
- Google gives $1 million to Greece to tackle coronavirus
- Huge improvements coming from apple on iPhone, iPad
- Safety check
As the name suggests, Google often now performs security checks to see if everything works properly. The new Chrome feature checks whether your browser is running the latest update, whether passwords have been compromised, and how safe browsing is turned on. It is also considering whether the user is running a malicious extension.
Despite the controversy, Google eventually activated the DNS-over-HTTPS protocol. For those who don’t know it, the protocol encrypts DNS queries, which have been running as plain text to date and masquerading as normal HTTPS traffic.
Users will find the protocol settings in the advanced browser settings.
