To celebrate the popular Web browser’s 10th birthday, Google has released version 69 of Google Chrome with a refreshed look featuring rounded shapes, new icons, and a new color palette. Notably, Google redesigned browser tabs so Web site icons are easier to see, making it easier to navigate a large number of open tabs. The update also generates and saves strong, unique passwords; improves the accuracy of filling in passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers; and provides more direct answers in the combination search and address bar for queries involving local weather, foreign translations, and sports scores. Google also updated the iOS edition of Chrome to version 69. (Free, 68.5 MB, release notes, macOS 10.10+)
