Chrome 69: Your guide to the latest version of Google's browser

The URL standard is universally supported for giving websites addresses but Google's Chrome team wants something easier to understand 4 updates coming to Google Chrome for its 10th birthday

Google Chrome was launched 10 years ago and as part of the celebration, Google has released Chrome 69 for desktop, Android, and iOS.

The update definitely looks substantial, though we're sure not everyone will be a fan of the new aesthetic. Imagine searching on Chrome for a singer you just heard, and having Chrome show you not just their bio, but also their upcoming concert near you and where to purchase tickets. In the near future, you will even be able to search your Google Drive without loading Google Drive. You can see it across all platforms-desktop, Android, and iOS-where you'll notice more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette.

To play the game, either turn off your WiFi and open a new tab, or enter chrome://dino/ In your search bar.

Google has improved the way Chrome handles passwords. The passwords are then saved to your Google account, meaning they sync to every computer and mobile device you use Chrome on.

Needless to say, this is a massive update.

Google has chosen today to make an announcement because of a special occasion: It's Google Chrome's 10th birthday!

Chrome's password manager has also been brought in line with other password management tools like LastPass. Chrome's always had a password manager, but this new version will be more proactive, generating passwords for you - pushing users away from recycling their passwords. The Chrome search box ("Omnibox") also gives you more information directly as you type. If you're a Chrome user, this is all quite exciting. "Chrome will save it, and next time you sign in, it'll be there, on both your laptop and phone", said Google.

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. Also, if you're typing an address to navigate to a website, the Omnibox will now let you know if you already have that tab open.

You can now create shortcuts for your favorite sites on the new tab page, as well as set a background image. If you try and use the same password across different websites, Chrome will warn you against doing so as well.

On the desktop, all you need to click on the three-dot icons on the right-hand side of your Chrome window, select Settings, click the Menu Bar, and click About Chrome.
