Google celebrates Chrome's 10th anniversary with fresh new version
Google Chrome is 10 years old this week. Accordingly, its maker is releasing a new version of the browser to mark this event. Known as the latest Chrome 69, it will be rolled out to all the mobile and PC devices it runs on. However, not all of these ports will see every novel feature contained in the update.
Chrome 69 is packaged with new features in both cosmetic and functional terms. For example, the classic angular tetrahedral tabs have been replaced by a more rounded design in its PC-based interface. The upgraded homepage also includes options for customizable shortcuts. The mobile browser may also now be easier to navigate, as the address bar has been relocated along the bottom of the app's window. However, this feature has only made it to iOS thus far.
Google also claims that Chrome's anniversary version brings improvements in terms of app opening times, page-loading times and (possibly most importantly) memory usage. The company has also promised updates for developers to go with the general-release anniversary edition of the browser.
