Internet users’ favorite browser of all time, Google Chrome, is now available in a new version. The all-new Chrome 76 comes with a bunch of security features and the option to enable dark mode, something fans have been asking since forever. The security features being rolled out with the new update will ensure that the users are safer than before while browsing in incognito mode.
So, what are the new feature of Chrome 76?
With a major focus on security, the Chrome 76 release will make your surfing in incognito mode fool-proof. One of the major highlights is the fix to a loophole that would let websites know whether one is browsing via incognito or not. With that big fixed, paywall-enabled news sites will no longer be able to know if the incognito feature is enabled or not, and thus will not be able to restrict the users from viewing content.
It also fixed a notorious bug that had previously helped websites launch annoying pop-up ads when Esc key was pressed. Some websites used to take advantage of this loophole to inject shady script in the code that would launch multiple pop-ups all at once if a user presses the Esc key on the keyboard.
Also, Google Chrome will now stop remembering your previous usage of Flash on a website. That is, even if you’ve allowed access to Flash on a webpage, you’ll have to give permission explicitly to re-enable again the next time you visit the same page. This goes in line with Google’s ambitious dream to kill Flash by 2020.
Other than the above-mentioned features, there is also an option to switch to dark mode in Google Chrome 76.
