Google’s 10 year browser anniversary comes with a new look for users

4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

To update to Chrome 69 on your Android device, you just need to make sure you are on the latest version via the Google Play Store.

A Google spokesperson said today the company is investigating reports about blurry fonts with the newly released Chrome 69 version. Gone are the sharp edge design around the tabs and the old search bar. It felt completely unnatural having to click to the left of the tabs everytime I wanted to open a new one.

You can now get answers to questions entered into Chrome's omnibox, which is the combined search and address bar at the top of the browser. Have you ever had so many tabs open that you couldn't find the article or conversation you were looking for, forcing you to systematically close tabs to search for the needle in the haystack that is your digital life?

As Chrome gained popularity, the browsers market share continued to grow exponentially and today holds more than 60% of that share on desktop and over 50% on mobile. In a press release, Google's Ellie Powers and Chris Beckmann note that the new look features "more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette", which is much brighter and whiter than before.

And finally, in terms of new up front features, Google is letting you customize the new tab page with your favorites.

Needless to say, this is a massive update.

Google announced Chrome on September 2, 2008 and over the past few years it has become the world's most popular browser beating the likes of Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) and Mozilla's Firefox.

Google Chrome now has improved password management experience.

When you're signing up for a new service, Chrome will be more than happy to suggest a strong password for you to try. This warning text will soon be red, emphasising that users should not use these sites.

Chrome now also packs a new UI, which ensures the browser can more accurately fill in passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers - so that "you can breeze through online checkout forms".

The Omnibox combines the search bar and address bar into one, making search more faster and smarter. As far back as Chrome 56, the company had started to issue warnings about the lack of security on HTTP sites.

Additionally, menus and other design elements have also been simplified, and customizability options allows users to add background images, create custom shortcuts etc.
