New Chrome for Android brings long-awaited password generator, improves dark mode
Google has released a new version of Chrome for Android. It is called Chrome 75, and offers a good deal of new and improved features. The most prominent example is probably the new password generator. This feature, which was originally pitched in 2017, can now pop up as one of Chrome's existing options for password management that appear while using the relevant fields.
Chrome 75 also enhances the app's new dark mode. In accordance with user feedback, the tab-text color is now no longer the gray that could easily blend into the background. The new white replacement font-shade is much more visible.
In addition, the ability to select this mode in the first place has been improved. Rather than the radio buttons under 'Themes' that had to be dug for through Chrome's options and settings, its toggle is now in a more obvious location.
The new Chrome for mobile update also raises the Web Share API to level 2. This allows the user to send files from this native Android app to others, and not merely text or URLs as in version 74. Its successor also improves on web-based animations. For example, it adds new events (overscroll and scrollend), which may enhance the pull-down to refresh gesture.
Finally, it is also rumored that Google is developing a feature in which iframes (e.g. videos and live ads) have to freeze during scrolling for Chrome 75.
