Chrome 69 Generates Strong Passwords For New Online Accounts

Clark ByrdSep 06, 2018

Originally released for Windows XP, the fledgling browser was subsequently released in Beta versions for Linux and OS X in December of 2009 with Stable releases to follow in spring of 2010.

To help us all find that which we've saved and lost in our browsers, Google has given Chrome the ability to find specific web pages via its Omnibox (the address bar).

For that, we are exceedingly grateful.

The Dino Easter egg game in Chrome has also been updated to include birthday cakes, balloons, and hats. "We've also integrated machine learning to detect phishing and malware sites, and most recently began applying it to detect malicious extensions". Since I generally keep my daily driver on the Developer channel and sometimes Canary, many of these updates have been live on my device for some time. Chrome 69 will require its users to manually activate Flash every time they visit a particular website instead of being able to enable it once per site.

The biggest change, Chrome now features more rounded shapes, new icons and a new colour palette.

As of this week Chrome suggests strong passwords anytime you're setting up a new online account. For those who open a lot of tabs, the look of the website icons have been made easier to see at-a-glance. Thankfully, they nixed that change and I'm glad they did. This new feature allows you customize the new tab page so that it shows the tiles you want and also allows you to edit the names of existing shortcut tiles.

Chrome can now make your passwords in addition to storing them - the most substantial feature in this update. Chrome is getting a new look everywhere, major improvements to its password manager, smart answers within the Search bar, and more.

This week is the Google Chrome browser's tenth anniversary, and Google is celebrating with the release of Chrome 69. Plus, Chrome will now tell you when you already have a site open, so you can jump to that tab without making a duplicate tab. The address bar's been also tweaked, with the Omnibox (suggestions bar) now giving you intelligent suggestions. "Already, we're working on integrating augmented reality (AR) into Chrome to bring information that you interact with across the web and put directly into your physical environment", shared Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, VP, Chrome and Chrome OS. You know; the sensitive ones.

After testing custom wallpapers from Google Photos and custom shortcuts in the Canary version, Google is now rolling out these features to the stable version of Chrome.
