Chrome: https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/4/17814516/google-chrome-new-design-features

Google Chrome now has a new look—one that I am sure you would like. It has taken a while, but good thing is the browser is spotting a fresh new look. The makeover has rounded shapes and tabs, update icons, and a color palette.

As a matter of fact, the interface is looking clean and refreshing, and Google has updated the prompts, menus and URLs in the address bar to go with the new look.

Google has now simplified the tabs to make it easier for anyone to see at a glance. In my opinion, the new tab will be useful for all those who like opening too many tabs.

Chrome 69, which is the latest version has now been updated in a way that makes autofill work more accurately. The new Chrome browser will now autofill and store passwords, credit cards, and addresses more accurately in your Google Account.

To improve security in your various online accounts, Google is now making it easier for the password manager to auto-generate and suggest a strong password when you sign up. The password will now be stored and made available on both mobile and desktop, The Verge reports.

Chrome is the dominant browser in the market—the browser controls about 60 percent edging out browsers like Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. In the last 10 years, the browser has added some unique features to maintain its dominant position.

Early in the year, Google’s long-awaited default ad-blocker for Chrome was launched. The ad blocker was launched to rid the internet of those annoying and disruptive video ads that oftentimes auto play. It is Google’s own way of bringing sanity to how its Chrome browser is being used. Going forward, it will restrict full-page and auto-playing video ads, and many others.

Ads that do not meet or follow the Better Ads Standards requirement will be removed after a 30-day notice. In a blog post on Wednesday, Google gave a clearer picture of what to expect and how the Better Ads Standards determine when an ad becomes disruptive.

Not all ads will be blocked by Google, however, sites that fail to meet standards set by the Coalition for Better Ads, which has among others Google and Facebook as members, will be filtered out.

The evaluation status of sites can be accessed via the Ad Experience Report API. Site owners can also see more detailed results, such as the specific violations of the Better Ads Standards that were found, via the Ad Experience Report in Google’s Search Console. From the Report site owners can also request that their site be re-reviewed after they have addressed the non-compliant ad experiences.

Sites can view their evaluation status via the Ad Experience Report API. Further details of the results, such as the specific violation of the Better Ads Standards that were found can be found via the Ad Experience Report in Google’s Search Console. To allow for fairness, owners of such sites can also request that their sites be “re-reviewed after they addressed the non-compliant ad experiences.”
