Google is rolling out the brand new model of Chrome for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Chrome 78 readies customization options for the New Tab web page, a nifty click on-to-call feature, and new tab overlays.
Announced last month Chrome will soon get more customization alternatives than just adding a background to the New Tab web page or using a subject from the Chrome Web Store. Accessible from the equal “Customize” button inside the bottom-proper corner of the New Tab web page, the “Background” choice remains unchanged. Google gives a gallery or you may add an image. “Shortcuts” confer with the grid of internet site favicons simply below the search bar. There are three opportunities:
My shortcuts: Shortcuts are cautioned based totally on web sites you go to frequently
Most visited sites: Shortcuts are curated by you
Hide shortcuts: Don’t display shortcuts on this web page
“Color and subject matter” helps you to select one among 23 preset themes, or release a shade picker to pick your very own and have Chrome create one. This characteristic isn’t always but widely rolled out.
Chrome is getting another cross-device sharing feature after Send this page widely rolled in September.
With “click-to-call,” you can right-click or highlight a phone number/link like tel:0900-800-8000 to have it sent to your Android phone. A Chrome notification will appear and a tap dials the number.
Google’s Password Checkup extension from February will soon be integrated with Chrome 78.
A red Safe Browsing-like dialogue prompt will appear to advise users to change their password. This feature works without Google becoming aware of plain-text credentials.
If we detect that a username and password on a site you use is one of over 4 billion credentials that we know have been compromised, the extension will trigger an automatic warning and suggest that you change your password.
