After the launch of version 76 on Android, Mac, Windows, and Linux, Google’s next beta browser launch is rolling out. The Chrome 77 beta offers a new welcome experience, and more customization alternatives are being prepared for the New Tab section and may take more Chromebooks to Google Assistant.
Chrome 77 presents a “new welcome screen” that after the first installation of the browser is mildly longer than the present one-page walkthrough. It begins by asking you to “make your own Chrome” by incorporating bookmarks under the Omnibox to significant Google apps. Gmail, YouTube, Maps, News and Translate are included in this.
The next one invites you to set Chrome as your standard browser to get “Google Search and Google smarts whenever you browse.” “Set as default” will unlock a system prompt to verify the option. The very last section outlines the advantages of converting Chrome Sync into “bookmarks, passwords, and more on all devices.”
Another way to create Chrome yours is to customize the appearance of the browser. By uploading your own image or choosing from the “Chrome backgrounds” gallery, you can currently customize the background of the New Tab page. The beta features of Chrome 77 operate on allowing users to customize “shortcuts” and “color and theme.”
Accessible in the bottom right corner of the New Tab section from the same “Customize” key, the first fresh choice relates to the website favicons just below the search bar. There are three choices:
“Color and theme” allows you to choose from twenty preset topics or start a color picker to choose your own and generate one for Chrome. Even on the Chrome 77 beta, without allowing two flags, this function is not yet accessible:
Only on the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate is Assistant accessible today. We’ve found Chromium commitments with Chrome OS 77 suggesting a wider release of Google Assistant on other Chromebooks is nearly here.
Chrome cleans chrome:/flags from version 77 onwards. How strategies are a better way to configure the browser is the declared justification for business clients. “Many flags” will be erased from the future, but this should not affect customers considerably.
Google is a large proponent of becoming as strong and feature-rich as native counterparts as web applications. Chrome 77 starts the original test of a Contact Picker API that ““allows users to select entries from their contact list and share limited details of the selected entries with a website.”
