First is Advanced Safe Browsing, which Google says will help reduce the risk of phishing or malware attacks. When activated, the tool predicts and warns users if web pages are dangerous. In addition, when users type their credentials into a website, Chrome can now warn them if the information was compromised in an earlier data breach, and suggest an update.
The second security-oriented upgrade is the ability to fill in passwords on any app, as Chrome on iOS now comes with the Google Password Manager, which allows users to autofill their login credentials in any app.
Other new features include faster translation of pages in different languages with the help of on-device machine learning, and making it easier for users to discover new content or start a new search after being away for a while.
“You’ll still be able to find all of your recent tabs, but we’re making it easier to browse content, start a new search or easily return to your most visited sites,” Google said. Will soon make it to Android.
The last change, Chrome Actions, will allow users to save time by typing the title of an action in the address bar. The address bar will also be able to predict when a user might benefit from a Chrome action based on the words already typed.
