What's new in the redesigned Google Chrome?

  • Google Chrome Material Design 2

The Omnibar, Google's term for the address bar turned search bar, is learning some new tricks too. The browser is getting a design overhaul that brings new icons, rounded shapes and new colour palette. Chrome 69 launched with a new user interface for the browser's main UI. The major update is in line with Google's Material Design approach, which gives the browser a modern touch.

Google has launched its latest version of Chrome, which features a new design, password manager, and more. The new tab design, for example, makes it easier to see sites' icons. For the phones, the new Chrome will take up the entire screen area as the support for notch has also been included.

You can see a video of the attack in action below. Perhaps the first thing you'll notice is that the browser no longer has sharp corners, with things being rounded off for a softer look.


Tabs changed on the desktop to highlight website icons more. And across Chrome, they have simplified the prompts, menus, and even the URLs in the address bar.

Tab backgrounds can now be customised with the photo of the user's choice and shortcuts can be created directly from the new tab. Not only will it proactively autocomplete queries and show answers before you can click enter, but it will also route you to now open tabs if you try to search for them. Think weather, word translations, info on sporting events, etc. all within the Search bar. Google says the Omnibox will return definitions in the drop-down results as you type as well as information about people and other subjects. Google has been very aggressive at adding new technologies, sometimes making Chrome the only browser that works with some of the company's web service features. There is also an improved password management system wherein it will generate a new secure password for you and will save it for future use so that you don't have to worry about remembering multiple passwords.

They are also rolling out a set of new experiments to improve Chrome's startup time, latency, usage of memory, and usability and there's a significant improvement in the the way Chrome handles passwords. All this information is saved to your Google account, and can also now be accessed directly from the Chrome toolbar. "AI is already working for you in features like Google Translate in Chrome, which uses a state-of-the-art AI-based translation engine to bring all the world's information to you in a language you can understand, right in your browser", writes Roy. With this release, we see some of this being put into play with how they indicate whether a web site is secure.
