Google redesigns Chrome to celebrate its 10th anniversary

But a palette swap and new icons aren't the only changes in Chrome's UI refresh.

The first thing you may notice in Chrome 69 is the new user interface for the browser. On the desktop, the tabs have been redesigned to be more modern and consistent, to match with all the other Material Design elements of the browser.

This week is the Google Chrome browser's tenth anniversary, and Google is celebrating with the release of Chrome 69.

For example, the shape of tabs has been tweaked to make website icons easier to see. And soon, you will be able to search for your files on Google Drive using Omnibox. Google launched its browser on 2 September 2008 and over the last decade it has become the world's most popular browser over mobile and desktop markets. If you let your little dino run into one, he'll don a birthday hat and keep on trucking.

After testing custom wallpapers from Google Photos and custom shortcuts in the Canary version, Google is now rolling out these features to the stable version of Chrome.

Bernie-Backed Progressive vs. Trump Loyalist Congressman in Florida
He will face Trump-endorsed Republican Ron DeSantis in November's general election, which forecasters have rated a toss-up. According to The New York Times, Graham was the front-runner of the race, making Gillum's upset even more significant.

On mobile, open the iOS App Store or Google Play store to update the app.

Whether you love or hate Google's tendency to regularly revamp the look of its services, these redesigns always focus on one thing: minimalism.

Also on iOS (but not Android), the toolbar has been moved to the bottom for easier reach. The browser has even received a customizable new tab page, allowing users to change its background, adjust its icons, and more. Rather than wait for a page to load to answer a simple question, it will show you weather and factoids right then and there in the list of results.

Chrome - which has around two billion users globally - is typically updated every six weeks, but it released a special update yesterday that introduces some new features.

The password manager is now better at figuring out when pages need credentials, according to Google, and its desktop version can now generate strong passwords for you on the fly. While this makes it accessible from any device and whenever the user needs it, in-browser password managers come with their own set of problems. Developers have been tinkering with this on Chrome OS for some time and have created a number of different options depending on whether you're using a tablet, clamshell or convertible. All this information is saved to your Google account, and can also now be accessed directly from the Chrome toolbar. When you visit a site that Chrome thinks might be harmful, you are given a huge warning and have to go through ... We recommend LastPass - it's used by numerous staff members here at Android Authority.
