Chrome Dino game gets a 10th Birthday update

Since that time, Google Chrome has birthed not only mobile versions of the browser but even a full-fledged operating system that is single-handedly responsible for our existence.

Google has launched its latest version of Chrome, which features a new design, password manager, and more.

There were many updates with this Chrome 69 release.

The screenshot below depicts the old design of the user interface.

The Chrome omnibox, the area where you enter your website URL, also enables you to search for a website and now will display answers directly below the box. For example, if you're a person who loves to have lots of tabs open, you can still do that, but the icons for websites are more clearly visible when you have an huge amount of tabs open. First up, Chrome has a new look with more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette across platforms. If you're lazy or open a bunch of tabs, this feature will save you a bit of time so you won't have to find the answer on Wikipedia or WolframAlpha.

Though they may not be life-changing, here are a few things worth checking out in the new Chrome experience. Your saved passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers, can be accessed from the Chrome toolbar, as shown in the feature image at the top of the page.

Needless to say, this is a massive update.

The massive redesign will see Google move Chrome to a completely different design language. Also, the browser will create complex, unique passwords, so you're not always using an easy to guess string of characters, such as passw0rd123.

Chrome's Omnibox, which allows the address bar to be used as a search bar is getting smarter. Previously, the tiles on the new tab page were automatically generated based on the sites you commonly visit.

Indeed, the flatter, rounded design looks modern, and makes navigation easier when you have several tabs open.

Speaking of passwords, Chrome can now auto-generate a strong password that will be linked to your Google account.

The update is rolling out to users today.

Circling back around to the New Tab Page, Chrome will now let you customize it by adding your own shortcuts and even adding your own wallpaper. 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. So I switched to Firefox as recent UI changes made it look as fantastic on a Mac as it does on a Windows 10 computer. This warning text will soon be red, emphasising that users should not use these sites.
