Months of minor updates culminated in the release of Chrome 69 this week, which introduces a radical redesign and a collection of new features to the most popular browser on the planet.
In addition to the Omnibox, Google also changed how it labels HTTPS URLs. The good news is that, even if you already updated to the latest version of the browser, you can still go back to the classic design.
Since it syncs with your Google account, if you log into the same site later on using your smartphone's Chrome browser, it will quickly fill in the information for you. Now, whenever you're prompted to create a password for an account, Chrome will be able to generate and save a secure one for you.
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. 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? This new feature allows you customize the new tab page so that it shows the tiles you want and also allows you to edit the names of existing shortcut tiles.
The Chrome upgrade also marks 10 years since Chrome was launched, said Google. Users new and old will now be met with a rounded search bar, rounded tabbed pages, and rounded quick search icons. Tabs have been given a rounded shape, making it easier to see the icons for each website when you have lots of tabs open.

"As we look to the next 10 years of Chrome, we see an even better and more immersive browsing experience on the horizon".
Another engineer pointed out that font rendering worked just fine in the beta version of Chrome 69.0.3497.81 but apparently broke down when the browser was released as the official stable release. However you feel, Google is giving Chrome a major visual update to celebrate this milestone.
For sites that do not use a SSL certificate, Chrome will now state that they are Not Secure so users know that anything entered on the site will not be encrypted. The new look, especially on the desktop, will make Chrome like a completely different browser. "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", shared Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, VP, Chrome and Chrome OS.
The team is now, Wired reports, focused on identifying the ways people now use URLs in order to develop an alternative method of addressing pages and sites which will both enhance security and add convenience - though, being described by engineering director Parisa Tabriz as 'an active discussion' at the company, it's unlikely that a URL replacement will be arriving in the immediate future.
