    Google Chrome to get a Reader Mode

    Google Chrome to get a Reader Mode Feature already active in Chrome Canary distributions. Here's how to enable it. Google's Chrome browser will get a Reader Mode, similar to the one found in competing browsers like Firefox and the old Microsoft Edge. The feature is currently under development, but Chrome Canary users can test it starting today. Chrome's Reader Mode will work by stripping pages of most of their useless content, such as ads, comments sections, or animations, and leave a bare-bones version behind, showing only titles, article text, and article images. HOW TO ENABLE READER MODE IN CHROME CANARY Work on the feature started in February this year when Google engineers began porting the "simplified view" offered by Chrome on Android to desktop editions. Today is the first day that a fully-functional Reader Mode is active in Chrome's desktop versions --via Google Chrome Canary distributions. To test Chrome's upcoming Reader Mode, users must first visit the chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode section in their Chrome Canary version, and enable the Reader Mode option. Once the Reader Mode flag is set to "Enabled," a restart will be required before users can enter a page's Reader Mode. While Reader Mode can be used on any page, it works better with news stories and large text-based content. To use it, users must click the top-right Chrome dropdown menu and select the "Distill page" option. Once enabled, this is how Chrome's current Reader Mode looks like: ZDNet understands that there are no current plans to enhance Chrome's Reader Mode beyond this simplified view. The idea, as stated in the Chrome bug report for tracking the implementation of this feature, was to port Chrome for Android's "Simplified View," rather than create a self-standing Reader Mode, akin to Firefox's more advanced alternative, which supports loads of options, ranging from text customization features to text-to-speech support.

  2. What Is Google Chrome Focus Mode and How to Enable It We’ve known for a while that Google was working on a new Chrome feature called “Focus Mode,” but until now, very little was known about its purpose. In fact, when I first wrote about the Focus Mode in Google Chrome back in February, I speculated that the search giant might be working on something similar to Focus Assist in Windows 10 and which blocks notifications when running apps and games in full screen. In Chrome, such an implementation would basically put the web content at the center of everything, and this makes sense in a wide variety of scenarios, like when reading news online. And while the purpose of Focus Mode in Chrome is indeed to put the focus on a specific page, the way it works is a little bit different than what we expected. As discovered on reddit, the Google Chrome Focus Mode is now available in the Canary version of the browser, which is Google’s testing browser for experimental features before they are included in the stable release. Canary isn’t supposed to become your daily browser, but only to let you try out new ideas ahead of the public launch. What Focus Mode actually isFirst and foremost, Focus Mode in Google Chrome is specifically aimed at tabs, so you can access the feature by simply right-clicking a select tab. What it does, however, is to open the tab that you select in a separate window without the typical browsing controls, so you get to read the content on the web in a simplified interface. As you can see in the screenshots here, you can still interact with the content of the page, so it’s a little bit awkward that back and forward buttons do not exist. However, you can find them in the context menu when right-clicking the page. By the looks of things, Google just wants to provide users with an easy option to open websites in separate windows with their own process. There are no extra features that you get in this Focus Mode, so it’s basically just a new and simplified Google Chrome window. How to enable Focus Mode in Google ChromeIf you want to try out the Focus Mode in Google Chrome, the first thing you need to do is to install the Canary version. Any version newer than 75.0.3740.0 should do. Next, you need to type the following code in the Google Chrome address bar to access the browser flags: chrome://flags And then in the search box at the top type the name of the flag that we’re going to use: #focus-mode As an alternative, you can just copy and paste the following code in the address bar of Google Chrome after launching the browser: chrome://flags/#focus-mode Google Chrome Canary ships with this feature set to the Default mode, which means that for now, it’s disabled. So what you need to do is to click the drop-down menu and then select Enabled. You’ll have to restart the browser for the changes to come into effect. Once you relaunch Google Chrome, the Focus Mode feature should be active, and to use it, simply right-click any tab > Focus this tab. At this point, it’s not yet known when Google wants to include the Focus Mode in the stable version of Chrome, but given it’s already in the Canary build and apparently working alright, there’s a chance it could happen in the next release. The next version to ship is Google Chrome 74 scheduled to go live on April 23. Source
  3. Make Mozilla Firefox Look Just Like Google Chrome The browser world is more or less divided into two different parts: the group of Chromium-powered applications and Mozilla Firefox, with the latter often been considered a more private alternative to Google Chrome. Choosing between the two for beginners, however, isn’t an easy thing to do, and what’s even more difficult is to switch from one to another. However, thanks to a new pack of customizations called ChromeFox and available on GitHub, you can technically ease the transition from Google Chrome to Mozilla Firefoxby retaining the familiar look of Google’s browser. In case you don’t think this is important, the lack of a familiar interface is the main reason many people actually refuse to migrate from one product to another, and this happens in many other domains beyond software. The best example, however, is Windows 7, which for many is the last desktop operating system with a familiar interface, as both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 introduced changes that more or less change this aspect. Getting back to browsers, ChromeFox does just that: it updates the interface of Mozilla Firefox in order to make it look like Google Chrome, so anyone coming from Google’s browser should basically feel more like home when trying out Firefox. ChromeFox comes with rounded tabs, overlay scrollbars, a bookmark bar that is only displayed on new tabs, and bigger bookmark bar item padding. All of these are supposed to create a Google Chrome-like UI that you can see in the screenshot below. Installing ChromeFox isn’t necessarily a difficult thing to do, but it’s a little bit more complicated than it is to install an extension or any other add-on for Mozilla Firefox. What you need to do is head over to the official GitHub page of the project and download the pack of customizations. Next, you need to extract all the contents of the archive to the profile directory of Mozilla Firefox. If you don’t know where this is, no problem. You can easily find it by clicking the Firefox menu button in the browser and then following this path: Help > Troubleshooting Info > Profile Directory > Open Folder Next, you need to create a folder called chrome if it’s not there already, and in this newly-created directory place the contents of the archive that you downloaded from GitHub. The next time you launch Firefox, the Google Chrome looks should be enabled by default. What’s worth knowing is that this customization pack comes without any options or configuration settings, so what you see is what you get. If you’re a developer, you can actually change some values here and there using the files in the archive, but other than that, this is pretty much it. If at some point in the future you want to remove the Google Chrome look and return to the classic Mozilla Firefox interface, the only thing you need to do is to delete either the chrome folder that you created entirely, or just remove the files placed in it. I tried out ChromeFox on Mozilla Firefox and, honestly, I couldn’t find anything wrong about it, as the customization pack really seem to be working pretty flawlessly. Of course, for Firefox diehards, making their favorite browser look like the number one rival isn’t the best idea, but as always, it’s better that the option to do this at least exists. If ChromeFox isn’t necessarily your cup of tea, there are several alternatives that do pretty much the same thing, and one of the most used is MaterialFox. You can try it out by downloading the pack from GitHub here. Source
  4. Google Chrome to block automatic downloads initiated from ad slot iframes Google continues its crusade against "drive-by download" attack vectors. Google Google developers plan to add a feature to Chrome that will prevent advertising slots on a website from triggering automatic file downloads in users browsers. "We plan to prevent downloads initiated from ad frames that lack a user gesture to prevent unwanted drive-by-downloads," Google developers said in a Chrome browser status pagepublished today. "Download doesn't make much sense with ads. It happens very rarely in practice and is also difficult to reproduce, which implies that a very small amount of ads are doing automatic downloads," Google said. "Blocking download in ad frames without user gesture will make the web less abusive and more secure." According to a design document that Google also published today, an "ad frame" is "an iframe marked as ad by the Chromium ad detection infrastructure AdTagging." This basically means any iframe that Google believes to be an ad. Today's news marks the second security feature that Google has announced this year as part of its efforts to block "drive-by downloads," a term used in the information security (infosec) industry to describe a download that happens without the user's knowledge. Back in January, Google announced that Chrome would also block automatic file downloads (drive-by downloads) initiated from sandboxed iframes --a type of HTML iframes also used for showing ads, but also by exploit kits to plant malware on users' computers. That first feature is scheduled to be included in Google Chrome 74, set for release in late spring. Google didn't say when it plans to start blocking automatic file downloads initiated from ad slots, but the feature is expected this year. This security feature and the protection it provides is only valid if users don't interact with the ad frames. File downloads will be allowed if users click or swipe on an ad. This will be allowed so ads can show "download" or "get it here" type of buttons. If Chrome blocks an automatic file download, the browser won't show any visible warnings. The browser maker estimates the performance impact of this feature to be negligible once implemented. Google intends to add this feature to all Chrome versions, except the one that ships for iOS, which isn't based on the Chromium engine, but on WebKit (Safari's engine). Source
  5. Google Testing New Chrome Feature for Faster Tab Switching on Android Google is currently testing a new feature for the Android version of Chrome browser that would make it easier and faster for users to switch from one tab to another. Basically, what Google wants to do is add a new toolbar at the bottom of the Chrome for Android screen that would just display the icons of the websites loaded in the browser. These aren’t thumbnails, but the favicons of each website, and tapping any of them instantly switches the browser to that page. This means you no longer have to open the tab view where you can jump from one website to another, but do it quickly by simply tapping the icons.Still a work in progressXDA explains that the new toolbar would also come with dedicated options to launch a mini tab switcher with a grid layout, but also with a plus symbol to add a new tab on the fly. A commit for this feature shows Google lists it as a work in progress and the development team is working on the underlying code powering it. For the time being, however, this feature is still in the works and isn’t even available for testing in the Canary version of Chrome. Most likely, Google will include it in the experimental browser at some point in the future and users will be able to try it out by enabling a dedicated flag. But as with every other experiment that Google is spotted testing, don’t hold your breath for it because the company could very well kill it off completely before launch if the development team isn’t pleased with the way it works. This the reason the Canary version of Chrome is so important for the future of the browser, as it allows Google to try out new features before they are available for everyone. Source
  6. Google Finally Fixes One of the Biggest Annoyances in Chrome Browser If you’re one of the many Google Chrome users out there, and there’s a big chance that you are given this browser has more than 65% share on the desktop, you probably noticed the changed F6 key behavior available since version 72. Because as many of us learned the hard way, someone at Google had the brilliant idea to change one of the most popular shortcuts in the browser and make it less convenient to quickly access the address bar. Before Chrome 72, simply pressing the F6 key switched the focus to the address bar, so you could begin typing the URL of the website you wanted to visit instantly. But after this version shipped, pressing the very same key actually moved the focus to the tab bar, and you just had to press F6 once again to reach the address bar. It might sound like a small change that shouldn’t be such a terrible problem, but for someone who’s been using this shortcut for a long time, such a tweak makes no sense.Hello, Canary!Needless to say, many people called for Google to bring back the original behavior of the F6 key, and it looks like the search giant got the message. The latest version of Canary restores this feature, making it possible to quickly focus on the address bar by simply pressing the F6 button on your keyboard. While we still don’t know if Google wants this change to be included in the next stable version of Chrome, you can try it out right now by simply installing the Canary build. I got this feature on Canary version 74.0.3720.5, so pretty much any release newer than this should restore the original behavior of the F6 key. The next stable build of Google Chrome is version 73, and it is projected to launch on March 12. Source
  7. Google Chrome Remains Top Desktop Browser, Microsoft Edge Surprisingly Grows Google Chrome continues to be the number one browser on the desktop, according to a fresh set of market share data, but somewhat surprising is the performance of Microsoft’s very own Edge. First and foremost, Google Chrome experienced a small decline in February, NetMarketShare reveals, dropping to 66.89% share. Mozilla Firefox fell as well but only to 9.39%. Microsoft Edge, on the other hand, went up in January, in spite of Microsoft’s announcement that it would be giving up on EdgeHTML and move to Chromium. The native Windows 10 browser increased from 4.61% in January to 4.79% in February, most likely as a result of the drop registered by the other browsers.Microsoft Edge moving to ChromiumThe Redmond-based software giant revealed in late 2018 that it plans to embrace the Chromium engine for its browser, technically building another Google Chrome version that would be embedded in Windows 10. The new Microsoft Edge will look and feel just like the current version, but by switching to Chromium, Microsoft can benefit from the large collection of extensions already available for Chrome. Furthermore, the company says it can contribute to Chromium and improve browsing for everyone, not just for its users. Microsoft promised a preview version of the new Microsoft Edge browser in the first months of 2019, but there’s a big chance the company holds it back for the Build developer conference in May. There’s no ETA for the stable build of the Chromium-based Edge, but it should go live in a future OS update, possibly in the fall of this year. The next major release of Windows 10, which is currently codenamed 19H1 and likely to launch as April 2019 Update, features the same version of Microsoft Edge as before that is based on the EdgeHTML engine.

  8. Updated: Google is preparing a patch for late April 2019. Some of the suspicious PDF files exploiting this bug don't appear to be malicious in nature. A security firm said this week that it discovered PDF documents exploiting a Google Chrome browser zero-day. The vulnerability allowed attackers to collect data from users who opened PDF files inside Chrome's built-in PDF viewer. Exploit detection service EdgeSpot, the company that found the files, says the PDF documents would contact a remote domain with information on the users' device --such as IP address, OS version, Chrome version, and the path of the PDF file on the user's computer. This phone-home behavior did not take place when researchers opened the same PDF files in desktop PDF viewer apps, such as Adobe Reader and others, but was limited to Chrome only. The company said it spotted two distinct sets of malicious PDF files exploiting this Chrome bug, with one series of files being circulated circa October 2017, and the second set in September 2018. The first batch of malicious PDF files sent user data back to the "readnotify.com" domain, while the second sent it to "zuxjk0dftoamimorjl9dfhr44vap3fr7ovgi76w.burpcollaborator.net," researchers said. There was no additional malicious code in the PDF files that EdgeSpot discovered. However, collecting data on users who open a PDF file can aid attackers in fine-tuning future attacks and exploits. But in a conversation with ZDNet after the publication of this story, Mac malware security expert Patrick Wardle explained that the first batch of files that EdgeSpot detected weren't meant to be malicious in nature, despite exploiting the Chrome bug. He said they were assembled using ReadNotify's PDF tracking service that lets users track when someone views their PDF files, a service that has been around since 2010. "What the researchers 'uncovered' is just a document tagged by ReadNotify," Wardle told us, "but yes, Chrome should alert the user." There is no information available on the second set of PDF files (the ones circulated in September 2018) and their nature --if they were assembled by a threat actor, if they're just tests, or were generated for benign user tracking purposes. For its part, EdgeSpot said it notified Google over the Christmas holiday, last year, when they first discovered the documents. The Chrome team acknowledged the zero-day and promised a fix for late April. "We decided to release our finding prior to the patch because we think it's better to give the affected users a chance to be informed/alerted of the potential risk, since the active exploits/samples are in the wild while the patch is not near away," researchers said in a blog post yesterday. The blog post also contains samples and indicators of compromise (IOCs) for the PDF files the company discovered. Until a patch is out, EdgeSpot is recommending that users either use a desktop app to view PDF files or disable their internet connection while they open PDF documents in Chrome. In unrelated research, but also connected to the world of PDF documents, earlier this week, security researchers revealed vulnerabilities that allowed them to fake signatures on 21 of 22 desktop PDF viewer apps and 5 out of 7 online PDF digital signing services. Article updated with Wardle's analysis. Source
  9. How to Create Your Own Search Engine in Google Chrome Google Chrome is a super-advanced browser that many don’t use to its full potential, but despite this, it’s still running on 7 in 10 desktop computers out there, according to third-party data. Chrome, however, was designed from the very beginning to simplify the majority of the tasks we perform online, and every single update comes with further improvements in this regard. For example, Google is currently working on a focus mode, a dark theme for Windows and Mac, tab grouping, and several other features, all supposed to enhance the browsing experience. One of the features that have been available in Google Chrome but which only a few people actually use allows us to configure custom search engines that make it much faster to look for certain information on a specific website. And let me detail why this is so helpful. As a heavy Android user, I try out lots of beta applications on my devices, and because it would be impossible to be part of each testing program, I sometimes download standalone APKs that let me run experimental builds without registering. To do this, I regularly check the Softpedia APK download section, which by the way is updated daily with tons of new Android app versions. To search for APKs on Softpedia, you can technically head over to apk.softpedia.com and then use the search box in the top right corner to search for the app’s name. But what if you can do the whole thing straight from the Chrome omnibox (the address bar) no matter what you’re doing in the browser? This is why custom search engines come in handy, and today we discuss how to create your own. Some search engines are automatically added to Google Chrome when you use them the first time, but you can also add your own manually and customize them with further settings. First of all, in Google Chrome you need to go to the following location: Settings > Search engine > Manage search engines At this point, you should see two different sections, namely Default search engines and Other search engines. The latter is the one we’re going to use. Click the Add button and then you’ll have to provide these details to set up a search engine: Search engine Keyword URL with %s in place of query The search engine field is actually the URL to the site that you want to search. In our case, this is apk.softpedia.com, which points directly to the APK section that we’re looking for when searching for files. The keyword is the term that you’re going to use in the Omnibox to indicate that you want to search using the search engine mentioned above. For example, I use apk as the keyword, so all my search queries using the apk.softpedia.com search engine look like this: apk appname And last but not least, the URL with %s in place of query is the link to the search results page with the %s tag replacing the keyword. While this sounds a little bit more complicated, the easiest way to determine this link is to actually conduct a search on the page that you want to use and then in the URL, just replace the keyword you used with the %s tag. For our search engine on apk.softpedia.com, the link looks like this: https://mobile.softpedia.com/dyn-search.php?apk=1&search_term=%s When you’re done with setting up the search engine, you can even set it as default, although I don’t recommend this unless you exclusively want to always search on the website that you defined. This method works on all desktop platforms, not just on Windows, and is supported in the latest versions of Google Chrome browser. Source
  10. Google Chrome Will Block Websites from Detecting Incognito Mode A future version of Google Chrome will block websites from side-stepping the existing implementation of the Incognito mode to determine whether users are browsing the web in private mode or not. The Incognito mode in Google Chrome improves user privacy when loading websites, making it harder for advertisers to track them and deliver relevant ads. And because Incognito has become such a popular way to prevent tracking, many advertisers turned to a simple trick that allowed them to determine whether this private browsing mode was being used when their websites were loaded. It all came down to detecting whether the FileSystem API is enabled or not, and this is a gimmick that Google has long been aware of. Technically, when browsing the web with Google Chrome, the application creates a FileSystem API to store data. When the Incognito mode is enabled, this feature is automatically disabled to make sure no traces are left behind, as this is the purpose of the private browsing option in the first place. So what websites did was to look whether the FileSystem API was there or not, basically determining if the Incognito mode was active.Coming to everyone enabled by default in Chrome 76As per 9to5Google, the search giant now wants to finally resolve this bug by simply creating a virtual file system when browsing in Incognito using the system’s RAM. In other words, the file system will always be there, so the checks currently made by advertisers would no longer be able to help determine whether Incognito is active or not. Google is even considering giving up on the FileSystem API completely, it seems, though the company wants to wait and see how this new approach will improve the current behavior. Chrome 74 will be the first to receive the new update, most likely as an optional feature that will be offered to users as a flag. The feature will be enabled by default for everyone when Chrome 76 launches. Source
  11. How to Use Google Chrome to Link to Text on Page As I reported only a few days ago, one of the new features coming to Google Chrome users is support for links that point not to websites, but to the actual content on a specific page. At this point, this is technically possible if the link is created based on an anchor or an iframe, but with this new Google Chrome implementation, you’re allowed to create a link that would point users straight to a specific word on the page. While it might sound a little bit confusing at first, the whole idea behind this new feature is to make it easier for you to share certain content. Imagine that instead of sharing an entire news article, for example, you can now point someone to a specific paragraph or statement of someone who’s quoted in the story. This new option in Google Chrome allows you to do just that. At this point, the feature is still its very early days, but as it was discovered recently, there’s a flag that enables it and then gives you the possibility of generating the links manually. Of course, this isn’t the most convenient method to create and share a link, but Google will significantly refine the whole experience with this feature by the time it reaches the stable production build of the browser. For now, this is what you need to do to try it out. First, you need to be running the most recent version of Chrome Canary. This tutorial is created on version 74.0.3710.0, so if you’re running a newer update, you should be good to go. Then, you need to access the dedicated flag that will enable the feature in the Canary version of Chrome. To do this, copy and paste the following command in the address bar of the browser: chrome://flags/#enable-text-fragment-anchor The name of the flag provides a few more details about what it does and the supported platforms: Enables scrolling to text specified in URL's fragment. – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android By default, this flag is set to Default, so click the drop-down menu and select the Enabled state. Reboot Google Chrome Canary to enable the feature. Next, you’ll have to manually generate the link that you want to use. The link must use the following syntax: https://www.domain.com/page/#targetText=wordtolinkto What you need to do is change the italic part, namely the wordtolinktotag, with the word on your page that you want the link to point to. Obviously, you also have to edit the domain and page address to match your example. As an example, let’s use this Softpedia News article. Its current URL is the following: https://news.softpedia.com/news/apple-ahead-of-microsoft-and-samsung-in-brand-intimacy-study-524993.shtml So if you want your link to point to the PlayStation word in the lower part of the screen, here’s what the link must look like: https://news.softpedia.com/news/apple-ahead-of-microsoft-and-samsung-in-brand-intimacy-study-524993.shtml/#targetText=PlayStation If you use this link and paste it in your browser’s address bar, you should see that it points directly to the PlayStation word, which is also highlighted on the page clearly showing where it leads to. Needless to say, you can use any word on a specific page. Using the same link in the current stable version of Google Chrome only loads the page but without pointing to the selected word. At this point, it’s not known when Google wants to release this new feature to all users, but I expect it to get further improvements, including an easier way to create the links and a user interface, in the upcoming versions of the Canary build.

  12. Google Chrome to Copy Another Firefox and Microsoft Edge Feature While Microsoft has already surrendered in the browser world and decided to move Edge to the Chromium engine, it doesn’t mean that this application doesn’t come with advanced features that are worth copying. And by the looks of things, Google totally agrees with this, as the company is getting ready to borrow another idea from rival browsers. This time, it’s a reading mode that’s already available in Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and even Vivaldi, and Google apparently wants this feature to be part of an upcoming stable release of Chrome too. Details at this point are scarce, but a recent bug report indicates that the reading mode is supposed to work on all platforms where Google Chrome is available, including Windows, Linux, and macOS.Currently in the worksThe reading view in Microsoft Edge provides users with an easy and simple way to read documents and articles online, with the browser extracting metadata like title, author, date, main text content, images, and copyright. “Microsoft Edge provides a reading view for a more streamlined, book-like reading experience of webpages without the distraction of unrelated or other secondary content on the page. Reading view can be toggled on or off from the Reading view (book icon) button on the address bar (or with Ctrl + Shift + R),” Microsoft explains. The feature works similarly in Mozilla Firefox and the other browsers where it’s available, and it’s likely to do the same when it becomes available in Google Chrome. At this point, there are no details as to when Google could bring this feature in a stable Chrome update, but given it is already in the works, it shouldn't take too long before it becomes available in the Canary testing builds. If you're on Windows 10 and want to see the reading mode in action, just open this story in Microsoft Edge and click the dedicated option in the address bar. Source
  13. Google Chrome Could Soon Stop Eating So Much Memory It’s not a secret that despite being the world’s number one desktop browser, Google Chrome is a major resource hog, eating up way too much memory regardless of the platform you run it on. But as it turns out, Google has heard all the criticism, so the company is now developing new ways to optimize resource usage in Chrome. As discovered by ChromeStory, the search giant is currently exploring an improvement called “Best Effort Tasks,” which essentially comes down to a new feature that would keep certain tasks on hold until the browser is closed. A code commit discovered by the cited source notes that “writing user data to disk, cleaning caches, reporting metrics or updating components” could only be allowed when the browser is closed, which in turns means that the application would require fewer resources during a typical browsing session.Resource usage optimizationsBy the looks of things, what Google wants to do is to delay all low-priority tasks in Chrome browser, and a flag description offers a few more details. “With this flag on, tasks of the lowest priority will not be executed until shutdown. The queue of low priority tasks can increase memory usage. Also, while it should be possible to use Chrome almost normally with this flag, it is expected that some non-visible operations such as writing user data to disk, cleaning caches, reporting metrics or updating components won’t be performed until shutdown.” At this point, these optimizations are still in their early days and there’s no confirmation Google would go forward with such tweaks. But it goes without saying that reducing the memory usage of Google Chrome would be a Godsend, especially because so many people use it every day. According to third-party data, Google Chrome is getting closer to 70 percent market share on the desktop, so nearly 7 in 10 PCs out there are currently running Google’s app regardless of the native browser they shipped with.

  14. Google Chrome to Get Tab Grouping Feature One of the new features that Google is working on for Chrome browser is called tab grouping, and according to a new report, it’s already being tested in the Canary version of the app. Originally discovered last year, tab grouping would technically make it substantially easier to work with multiple links from the same page, all in the same screen. As the typical Google Chrome user keeps increasing the number of tabs they work with at the same, such improvements would certainly come in handy for tab management. As reported by ChromeStory, this feature would automatically group tabs from the same website, and whenever new links are accessed, they are automatically added to the group they belong to. Users are also allowed to manually manage groups and tabs, and there are signs that Google could at some point include synchronization support for this feature.Sync support comingIn other words, Google could make it possible to migrate full groups of tabs from one device to another, which technically makes it possible to send tab groups from the PC to Chromebooks or Android devices and the other way around. Tab grouping isn’t something entirely new, and while Google was spotted testing it last year, the feature has been around for a long time on other browsers. For example, Vivaldi already lets users group tabs manually for better management, while Chrome and Firefox can do the same thing using third-party extensions. At this point, however, it’s not known when Google could bring the feature to the stable version of Chrome, but it’s pretty clear that further testing is necessary before this happens. However, as it turns out, the project has advanced substantially since it was first rumored last year, and if everything goes according to the plan with no major issues discovered, it shouldn’t take long before it receives the green light for everyone.

  15. Chrome to show warnings when accessing mistyped domains. The Google Chrome browser is set to add a feature that will warn users when accessing sites with domain names that look like authentic websites. The feature has been in the works for quite some time at Google and is a response to the practice of using typosquatted domains or IDN homograph attacks to lure users on websites they didn't intend to access. For example, crooks often register misspelled versions of popular domains, such as paypall.com, or they'd use domains with Unicode characters like coịnbạse.com to host phishing pages and steal users' credentials. But since the release of Chrome Canary 70, Google engineers have been testing a new feature called "Navigation suggestions for lookalike URLs." In Chrome Canary distributions --Google Chrome's testing ground for new features-- users can access the following URL to enable the feature: chrome://flags/#enable-lookalike-url-navigation-suggestions Once enabled, this new mechanism will show a dropdown panel under the Chrome address bar, asking the user if he really meant to type and access that URL, which Chrome deemed dangerous due to its close resemblance with a more legitimate site. This Chrome flag is also present in the stable version of Chrome, but in our tests, it failed to detect the same URLs that Canary picked up, meaning Google engineers are still fine-tuning their lookalike URL detection system before its official release. It is unclear when this feature will officially ship, but it must be really close to being finalized, seeing that a Google Chrome engineer gave a presentation about it yesterday, January 29, at the USENIX Enigma conference held in the US.

  16. Google Chrome Will Support Another Key Windows 10 Feature Microsoft is pushing hard for its Windows Mixed Reality platform, and the company could soon get some help to make this effort successful from none other than its long-time rival Google. Because as it turns out, the search giant is currently looking into adding support for the mixed reality platform to Google Chrome using the WebVR standard. This technically means that users will be able to browse the web with Google Chrome with a Windows Mixed Reality headset, though for the time being, such capabilities are still in the early stage and an ETA isn’t available. Google looking at this feature, however, isn’t necessarily surprising, As 9to5google noted, Microsoft has turned this project into one of its key projects based on Windows 10, and the platform has constantly expanded with the addition of new software, including games.Project still in early days, no ETA available right nowUntil now, however, browsing options have been rather limited, with Microsoft pushing hard for Microsoft Edge to be used by with a Windows Mixed Reality headset. Obviously, the arrival of Google Chrome on the platform would bring major benefits to users, especially because this browser is currently the leader in terms of market share on the desktop, with more than 65 percent of PCs running it. At the same time, Microsoft is also planning major changes on the browser front. The company will soon migrate to the Chromium engine for its very own Microsoft Edge browser, with a preview of the updated application expected as soon as this quarter. Microsoft Edge will stick with the current look and features, but Microsoft says that working together with the other companies using the same engine could help significantly improve the Chromium project, which eventually brings major benefits to the entire web.

  18. Brief: Here’s why Mozilla Firefox should be your choice in the effort to protect your privacy and in keeping the internet healthy and an open place. Browser choice is a very personal thing. I notice that people have a sort of, love towards the browser that they have been using for a long enough time. What I mean by “love” is that it is quite difficult to make someone change their default browser. Ask Microsoft, they have tried. Let’s say your favorite browser is Chrome. Now even if I tell you that some xyz browser consumes 30% less memory than your Chrome, I doubt that you’d even consider switching to my xyz browser. I agree that Google Chrome is a great browser. As of Septemeber 2018, Google Chome is the most used browser with a market share of 67.88%. Personally, I use Chrome a lot too. It’s the fastest browser out there. Its password manager and sync services are just awesome. Chrome on my PC syncing everything with Chrome on my phone is so convenient. Its autofill makes signups and forms so quick and relaxing. And the apps from the Web Store make Chrome feel like a mini operating system in itself. Chrome is so much more than just a web browser now. To top it all off, it’s all for free! Or is it? Google doesn’t want you to pay with money for using Chrome. Rather it wants you to pay with your personal data. It wants to snoop, spy and stalk you. But it’s not like a person at Google is personally going through your emails and data. No, I don’t want to make you afraid of Google or mislead you regarding the way Google handles your data. Google is very trustworthy with your data. It uses all your data to serve you ads and nothing else. It handles your information in a very professional manner. The data is stored securely and only computers access it to determine what kind of ads are more suitable for you. But what if you don’t want Google to have your data, no matter how trustworthy they are. You would be right to have that stand as Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal and the attack on Facebook in September 2018 left 300,000 and 50 million users vulnerable respectively. And our own Google Plus social network has admitted of a flaw that exposed 500,000 users to third party. So is the internet a safe place for your data if the biggest names in the industry themselves cannot protect your personal data? The answer is a very big no. And you should be actively protecting yourself from this threat. The thing about using Google Chrome is, your gateway to the internet also is Google’s gateway to your private data. The pages that you visit, your searches, the time you spend on particular sites, everything is sent to Google. Even when Google is doing everything to keep your info safe, it still, does put you in a very vulnerable position. The very first step would be to switch to Firefox. The thing about Firefox is, it comes from Mozilla, which is a non-profit organization. Mozilla does not seek to make huge profits from collecting user info and selling it or using it to serve ads. Mozilla Firefox is an open-source project. Which means anybody can have a look at the code and see how it works and what exactly it does. Mozilla Firefox does not send your private info to its servers or any third party partners. It sends some statistical data which is non-intrusive, anonymous and is used only to improve Firefox. Firefox browser has features such as Tracking protection to make sure that websites do not track your online activities across multiple sites, something that Facebook does very intrusively. Firefox also enables you to protect yourself better by using security extensions such as HttpsEverywhere. It significantly improves your security by connecting using a secure, encrypted HTTPS over the less secure HTTP. Is Monopoly good? If there was only one Pizza shop in your city. Only one. Then You’d probably have to pay what the pizzeria asks you to pay. And what if they put pineapple on every pizza? If you complain, they would just ask you to take it or leave it. But if you have 2, 3 or more pizza shops in your city, well the cost would be regulated as a result of competition, the quality would increase and the pizzerias would try to keep you happy with a variety of pizzas, with and without pineapples. Okay, why are we talking about pizzas here? Consider this scenario. Google Chrome continues rising and say, it achieves a market share of 99.9%. Now Google Chrome releases a proprietary technology for web development. And developers need to pay a certain amount of money to Google to get it, without which their website won’t work properly on Chrome. Now since everybody is using Chrome, You, as a web developer will pay Google right? The above scenario is highly unlikely but still is very Googley. Android is an open source operating system from Google. But the user experience on it, is a pleasurable one, vastly because of Google Play Services which is proprietary. Without Google Play Services and Google apps, Android would be utterly unusable, at least for me. And Google reportedly will charge $40 to preload Google Apps in the European market. But we have alternatives if we don’t like the terms and conditions for using Android. But do we have an alternative to the World Wide Web? Protect the Web Firefox is very passionate about protecting the openness and freedom of the web. And as the second largest browser, it is our best bet at keeping a healthy and open web. Firefox has been supporting and promoting the use of open source web technologies and the freedom of the web users against being tracked and spied on. Do you really want an internet where personalized ads are shoved down your throat everytime you open the browser? Remember, in the advertisement business YOU are the product. By using the Firefox browser, you take a stand. You say it out loud and clear that it is not Ok to track your every movement online. You are not a digital slave. Start a change Now I’m not saying that You need to uninstall Google Chrome and burn your computer. No. I’ve admitted that Google Chrome is a great browser in terms of user experience and I stand by it. I also understand that you’ve grown dependent on Chrome. And it’s OK. You can start small. Install Firefox on Your computers. Start using Firefox when you need to do a quick search. Start using Firefox just for your Facebook. Firefox is really a pleasure to use. I’m not suggesting a planned revolution against Chrome. Just use Firefox whenever you can. By doing to You are sending internet traffic through Firefox. That’s might be just a simple act. But it has a huge effect in protecting the openness and the freedom of the web. And even if You decide to switch to Firefox completely, it’s not that difficult. Firefox too has its own sync service which pairs your desktop Firefox to Firefox on your smartphone to provide you a seamless cross-device browsing experience. How does Firefox perform? With the latest Firefox Quantum update, Firefox has caught up to Chrome in terms of speed and even beats Chrome in certain areas. Now Firefox is not faster than Chrome on load times. According to official Firefox blog itself, Firefox is actually milliseconds slower than Chrome. But when we’re talking milliseconds, it’s a unit of time that is not even perceived by humans. Anyway, we’re talking just a 4-millisecond difference. But there’s a very major area where Firefox trumps Chrome We all know that Chrome is a memory hog. And with pretty much every website turning into a heavy, resource intensive, web-application, memory becomes pretty important. And once memory starts getting filled up, swapping comes into place, leading to drastic slowdowns. Now Firefox has an improved engine which very effectively addresses this issue. Firefox Quantum consumes 30% less RAM than Chrome. This means that you enjoy a much more responsive web interaction and a better overall web browsing. And there’s a hardware acceleration option in Firefox (disabled by default), which when enabled shows a ridiculous improvement in the rendering quality, textures, the speed and the interactivity of the websites. You can see how to enable it here. I highly recommend that you give it a try. If you do not like it or feel your CPU and GPU working extra hard, you can disable it. Wrapping up In a world where large tech companies are finding newer ways to lock down the internet (net neutrality) and finding ways to make money out of it, Firefox has been trying to protect what is rightfully ours. Firefox is more than a browser. It’s a movement trying to protect the internet. It’s trying to keep the internet healthy and an open place. And it needs your help to do so. And as I’ve said above, you can start small. Do share this article with your friends and encourage them to give Firefox a try. And Your comments are always welcome. Cheers. Source
  19. Google is introducing a small but important update to its Chrome browser, one designed to prevent consumers from being swindled by underhanded or unclear mobile subscription services Some web pages invite visitors to input their mobile phone number in order to subscribe to some kind of service, such as a mobile game, but it’s not always clear how much they will be charged or even if that they are being charged at all. This is enabled by a service known as carrier billing, something that allows users to bypass more laborious subscription methods by having a fee charged directly to their mobile phone bill. It is actually an incredibly useful service for many things, as it removes much of the friction of paying for things online — and it also means you don’t need to have a credit card on hand. But content or service providers capitalize on this ease by obfuscating key information from the sign-up process, such as costs and whether it’s a one-off or recurring fee.

But content or service providers capitalize on this ease by obfuscating key information from the sign-up process, such as costs and whether it’s a one-off or recurring fee. Above: Example mobile subscription scam Starting from December 2018 with the launch of Chrome 71, Google’s browser on mobile and desktop, as well as in Android WebView, will display a warning if it detects that there is insufficient mobile subscription information available to the user. “We want to make sure Chrome users understand when they are going through a billing flow and trust that they’ll be able to make informed decisions while browsing the web,” Google wrote in a blog post announcing this update. Visitors will be given the option to proceed to a webpage, but by default the highlighted option is to return to the previous page. Above: Chrome’s warning The owner of the website is also sent a warning through the Google Search console that their mobile billing page needs improvement, and the webmaster can inform Google once it has made the necessary changes — if Google accepts their update, the warning is then removed. “Every month, millions of Chrome users encounter pages with insufficient mobile subscription information,” Google added. “Surprising charges that come from unclear communication are a poor user experience.” In short, if you actively seek subscriptions through mobile phone numbers on the web, you will need to be much clearer with the costs and billing structure before the user signs up. Otherwise, your website could be flagged with a warning. Chrome has a history of proactively warning visitors of potential dubious activity on certain websites. Google recently changed how it alerts users to a website’s security, for example, as it now uses a red “Not secure” label on HTTP websites. Source
  20. Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world. Chrome routinely leads the pack in features for security and usability, most recently helping to drive the adoption of HTTPS. But when it comes to privacy, specifically protecting users from tracking, most of its rivals leave it in the dust. Users are more aware of, and concerned about, the harms of pervasive tracking than ever before. So why is Chrome so far behind? It’s because Google still makes most of its money from tracker-driven, behaviorally-targeted ads. The marginal benefit of each additional bit of information about your activities online is relatively small to an advertiser, especially given how much you directly give Google through your searches and use of tools like Google Home. But Google still builds Chrome as if it needs to vacuum up everything it can about your online activities, whether you want it to or not. In the documents that define how the Web works, a browser is called a user agent. It’s supposed to be the thing that acts on your behalf in cyberspace. If the massive data collection appetite of Google’s advertising- and tracking-based business model are incentivizing Chrome to act in Google’s best interest instead of yours, that’s a big problem—one that consumers and regulators should not ignore. Chrome is More Popular Than Ever. So is Privacy. Since Chrome’s introduction in 2008, its market share has risen inexorably. It now accounts for 60% of the browsers on the web. At the same time, the public has become increasingly concerned about privacy online. In 2013, Edward Snowden’s disclosures highlighted the links between massive, surreptitious corporate surveillance and the NSA’s spy programs. In 2016, the EU ratified the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a sweeping (and complicated) set of guidelines that reflected a new, serious approach to data privacy. And in the U.S., this year’s Cambridge Analytica scandal sparked unprecedented backlash against Facebook and other big tech companies, driving states like California to pass real data privacy laws for the first time (although those laws are under threat federally by, you guessed it, Google and Facebook). Around the world, people are waking up to the realities of surveillance capitalism and the surveillance business model: the business of “commodifying reality,” transforming it into behavioral data, and using that data and inferences from it to target us on an ever-more granular level. The more users learn about this business model, the more they want out. That’s why the use of ad and tracker blockers, like EFF’s Privacy Badger, has grown dramatically in recent years. Their popularity is a testament to users’ frustration with the modern web: ads and trackers slow down the browsing experience, burn through data plans, and give people an uneasy feeling of being watched. Companies often justify their digital snooping by arguing that people prefer ads that are “relevant” to them, but studies show that most users don’t want their personal information to be used to target ads. All of this demonstrates a clear, growing demand for consumer privacy, especially as it relates to trackers on the web. As a result, many browser developers are taking action. In the past, tracker blockers have only been available as third-party “extensions” to popular browsers, requiring diligent users to seek them out. But recently, developers of major browsers have started building tracking protections into their own products. Apple’s Safari has been developing Intelligent Tracking Protection, or ITP, a system that uses machine learning to identify and stop third-party trackers; this year, the improved ITP 2.0 became the default for tens of millions of Apple users. Firefox recently rolled out its own tracking protection feature, which is on by default in private browsing windows. Opera ships with the option to turn on both ad and tracker blocking. Even the much-maligned Internet Explorer has a built-in “tracking protection” mode. Yet Google Chrome, the largest browser in the world, has no built-in tracker blocker, nor has the company indicated any plans to build one. Sure, it now blocks some intrusive ads, but that feature has nothing to do with privacy. The closest thing it offers to “private” browsing out-of-the-box is “incognito mode,” which only hides what you do from others who use your machine. That might hide embarrassing searches from your family, but does nothing to protect you from being tracked by Google. Conflicts of Interest Google is the biggest browser company in the world. It’s also the biggest search engine, mobile operating system, video host, and email service. But most importantly, it’s the biggest server of digital ads. Google controls 42% of the digital advertising market, significantly more than Facebook, its largest rival, and vastly more than anyone else. Its tracking codes appear on three quarters of the top million sites on the web. 86% of Alphabet’s revenue (Google’s parent company) comes from advertising. That means all of Alphabet has a vested interest in helping track people and serve them ads, even when that puts the company at odds with its users. Source: The EFF
  21. Google is working with Qualcomm to brings ARM capabilities to Chrome. Doing so would dent Microsoft Edge as the browser continues to battle Chrome’s dominance. Over the last year, Microsoft has been working with chip giant Qualcomm on Windows 10 on ARM. The idea is to make PCs more affordable by blending the best aspects of desktop computing and mobile tech. Now, Google is once again challenging Microsoft directly with its own ARM integration for Chrome desktops. Windows 10 on ARM has had mixed results so far, not least because Microsoft’s app issues are ever present. While Snapdragon-powered laptops can handle native Windows apps easily, it struggles with third-party solutions. That’s because the processor must run these apps in an emulator, slogging the CPU and slowing performance. Google believes it has the answer by porting Chrome on Snapdragon-powered laptops. The company is working directly with Qualcomm on the implementation. The result could mean optimal performance for all apps on ARM-based PCs. This does little to hamper Microsoft’s own Windows 10 on ARM push. Not least because Qualcomm is developing more powerful dedicated laptop Snapdragon chips for Windows. However, for Microsoft Edge, Google’s involvement in ARM is a problem. Microsoft has been trying to bring more users to its browser and while disconnects to the ARM push, Google integrating ARM with Google makes its browser even more appealing. Speaking to Android Authority, Qualcomm’s senior director of product management Miquel Nunes confirmed the companies are working together: “We are. We’re still working with the different OEMs and designs. I expect you’ll see it probably around (the) second half of next year. Every OEM will decide whatever their launch timeline is, but we’re actively working on it.” Browser Conundrum Microsoft is in a strange place with its Microsoft Edge browser. It is a situation that is similar to the battle the company engages in with Google for search dominance. Google Search is the dominant market leader and Bing is a distant second. This is despite Microsoft’s various improvements to make Bing a potent alternative. It’s an analogous situation in the browser arena. Microsoft Edge has scored plenty of neat features and is definitely an interesting alternative to Google Chrome. However, Chrome remains dominant. Of course, that’s largely because Google continues to at least match Microsoft’s features step for step. It’s worth mentioning the one difference between search and browser is Bing was never the market leader. It’s easy to forget that Microsoft until recently controlled the browser market with Internet Explorer. Source

  23. Google started to roll out Google Chrome 69 Stable to all supported systems yesterday. The new version of the web browser arrived in time for the browser's 10 year anniversary. While Google's release notes are usually short and not very descriptive when it comes to new features or changes, it is different this time around thanks to the anniversary. The company published an article on the official Chrome blog, Chrome's turning 10, here's what's new, in which it highlighted some of the changes in the new version. Chrome 69 is one of the few releases of the browser that makes modifications to the user interface. First up, Chrome has a new look. You can see it across all platforms—desktop, Android, and iOS—where you’ll notice more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette. Tabs changed on the desktop to highlight website icons more. We changed the shape of our tabs so that the website icons are easier to see, which makes it easier to navigate across lots of tabs. Chrome users who upgrade to Chrome 69 will notice the interface changes right away. The edges of tabs are rounded in Chrome 69, the profile icon was moved from the title bar to the main toolbar, and the height of the titlebar has been reduced even further in the new version. Chrome 69: the new design The screenshot below depicts the old design of the user interface. It is possible, currently, to restore the old user interface in Chrome. The option to do so is powered by an experimental flag; these flags may be changed or removed at any time and it is unclear for how long Chrome users will have the option to restore the old UI layout. Here is what you need to do: Load chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md in the browser's address bar. The flag is still available if the experiment UI Layout for the browser's top chrome is returned as the first result on the page that is loaded. Activate the menu next to the flag and set it to Normal. Restart the Chrome browser. Note: You can experiment with other UI layout options, e.g. touchable or hybrid to pick the one that works best for you. Just remember that these options may be removed by Google at any time. Normal - for clamshell devices Hybrid (previously touch) middle point for devices with a touch screen Auto, unclear, likely automatic selection. Touchable - new unified interface for touch and convertibles (Chrome OS) Material Design refresh Touchable Material Design refresh. Source:ghacks.net
  24. Chrome’s new password manager stops you from using the same password for every website New built-in password manager generates random passwords Google is releasing an entire new design for Chrome today with new features and tweaks to the browser’s overall appearance. You can read more about the redesign here, but one of the big new features is an improved password manager. Chrome will now offer to automatically generate a random password when you sign up to websites for the first time. This password will be stored inside a Google Account securely and synced across desktop and mobile versions of Chrome. This should stop regular Chrome users from always picking the same password for each site, and ultimately ending up with a security headache if a site is breached. Chrome’s password manager is a welcome change, but you may still want to use a dedicated and separate password manager. Chrome only manages passwords inside its browser, so if you sign into various mobile apps or apps on a TV like Netflix then these login combinations won’t be stored in a Google Account. That’s particularly relevant now that iOS 12 is about to introduce the ability to autofill passwords across browsers and apps from third-party password managers. How to use a password manager (and why you really should) Google’s choice to offer a password generator and manager will likely trigger debate about best password practices. Some security experts argue web users should simply remember a long and memorable phrase for each password, while others recommend a random password with special characters that’s managed by a password manager. Both options should still take modern computers years to crack, until systems get faster or the age of quantum computing finally arrives. By then, we’re hoping the entire industry has figured out a reliable way to get rid of pesky passwords once and for all. Chrome’s new password manager is available today as part of the Chrome 69 release. Download Here. Source.
