Google's Chrome browser celebrates its first decade
4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday
06 September, 2018, 02:01
We're anticipating some major upgrades when Chrome OS 70 hits sometime in early October but in the meantime, the Chrome team over at Google is giving desktop and mobile users a reason to join in on the browser's 10th birthday. Google says you will notice "more rounded shapes, new icons and a new colour palette", using the Material design language. The look of the browser has been radically changed, with a massive UX change on iOS where the toolbar has now been moved to the bottom so it's way easier to reach.
Google's Chrome web browser, built on the open-source Chromium, has turned 10 this week, and while its latest release includes a redesign and several new features the company has a bigger vision in mind: Redefining the uniform resource locator (URL).
If you're a person that relies on Chrome auto-filling your information, you'll be happy to know that the new browser will fill in sections more accurately.
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.
Perhaps, most useful is the "Already Opened" feature in the Omnibox, which will alert us tab warriors of page searches that we now have buried in pile of open tabs. There are also plans to make Google Drive files searchable direct from the omnibox very soon. This is similar to how Google search works, but directly in the Chrome browser. Users can now customise the "New Tab" page with an uploaded background image or a Google collection. AR is going to play a large role in the future of computing, so, naturally, Chrome will be there, too, allowing you to see if that new couch you were browsing will fit with the rest of your living room decor.
For example, the shape of tabs has been tweaked to make website icons easier to see.
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.
The screenshot below depicts the old design of the user interface. Nonetheless, it's rolling out starting today so keep an eye out! '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, ' he explains.
To help us all find that which we've saved and lost in our browsers, Google has given Chrome the ability to find specific web pages via its Omnibox (the address bar).
Along with this updated appearance, Google has now changed the popular search feature from within the address bar.
