This week marks the 10th birthday of Google’s internet browser, Chrome.
When the company launched in 2008, it changed the way people browse the internet. Since then it has become one of the most popular internet browsers with an estimated 66% worldwide usage (according to StatCounter)
To celebrate the milestone, Google is introducing a new look for Chrome.
The new look will be present across all platforms that Chrome is on, including Android, iOS and your computer. There will be more rounded shapes, new icons and a brand new colour palette.
Google is also making improvements to the auto-fill functionality for passwords, addresses and credit card numbers. Google is also implementing a built-in password generator (similar to other password managers) and it’ll be saved for use wherever you use Chrome.
Chrome will also be able to show you answers to questions right from the search bar, you’ll also soon be able to search files in your Google Drive from the Omnibox in Chrome.
The Chrome redesign will be rolling out over the next few weeks. You can find out more about the new password manager in Chrome, here.
