Google's Chrome browser celebrates its first decade

The Google Chrome browser has finally caught up with other Google apps and their material design language.

Google has launched its latest version of Chrome, which features a new design, password manager, and more.

Chrome has looked pretty similar for a decade, but version 69, a 10th anniversary overhaul, is a significant update. The updated Material theme has gone through various iterations, and the Android app redesign has been in the works for well over a year.

You'll soon be able to search through your Google Drive right from the search bar. The omnibox will display answers to questions in the address bar without having to open a new tab, from football scores to local weather.

If you ever use the Google Search bar on your phone, this next snippet will look very familiar.

Chrome is turning ten, and it's getting a makeover to celebrate.

So, if you fancy giving these new features a try, here's how to make sure your Chrome browser is fully up to date.

National Basketball Association rumor: Rockets trading Ryan Anderson to Suns
Meanwhile, Knight hasn't played in an National Basketball Association game since February 2017 thanks to various injuries. Melton, 19, is a second-round draft pick out of USC who showed dynamic, if raw, talent in the Las Vegas Summer League.

The Chrome upgrade also marks 10 years since Chrome was launched, said Google. All this information is saved to your Google account, and can also now be accessed directly from the Chrome toolbar.

Needless to say, this is a massive update.

Chrome 69 is one of the few releases of the browser that makes modifications to the user interface.

You can download Chrome here and below we have outlined some of the major changes in this release. Chrome 69 introduces a new look, an updated password manager and other improvements for Google's wunderkind. But there's more than superficial design changes in Chrome 69, as you'll see below.

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. Developers have been tinkering with this on Chrome OS for some time and have created a number of different options depending on whether you're using a tablet, clamshell or convertible. Lastly, Google Chrome can now automatically generate password suggestions so you don't have to come up with your own passwords.

Along with this updated appearance, Google has now changed the popular search feature from within the address bar. Tabs have been given a rounded shape, making it easier to see the icons for each website when you have lots of tabs open.

Chrome's also adding greater control over the shortcuts available on a new tab page, and improved accuracy for autofill forms (hopefully it will stop placing the first two lines of my address in the Address 1 form).
