Newly-launched Google Chrome 66: Here Are The Top Features

Google Chrome

Google’s Chrome 66 comes with updates designed to make browsing even better.

Chrome 66, the latest update to the world’s most popular browser, is now finally live. It brings with it new features both for users and developers and several changes on policy and security.

Probably the key highlights to this update include autoplay blocking feature, password exporting and improved stability and performance.

As reported last month, this latest update includes a feature where Chrome 66 automatically mutes autoplay videos. That is unless the user frequently plays media on that website or in some way interacted with the content on that page.

“This will allow autoplay to occur when users want media to play, and respect users’ wishes when they don’t,” Google previously said in a statement.

The latest update now also includes an “Export Passwords” feature. This allows users to export their saved passwords and import them into other browsers. To access this, you can go to Settings > Advanced > Passwords and forms > Manage passwords > Saved Passwords menu.

On the security front, Google has removed trust for Symantec certificates after the company failed to follow industry security standards.

The full list of the changes of this build is available in the Git log.

Chrome 66 is now available for iOS users in the App Store. The Android version has also already been released and will be available on Google Play over the course of the next few weeks. For desktop, you can update your Chrome now using the built-in updater or download it directly here.
