On the 10th anniversary of Chrome's launch, Google today updated its popular browser to version 69, introducing a new look and several new features for the desktop and mobile apps.

Chrome 69 offers up a refreshed design with rounded tabs, a new color palette, and new icons, with the updated design extended to menus, prompts, the address bar, and other browser aspects. Google says the new design is meant to provide a simpler look that boosts productivity.

On iOS, changes have been made to make browsing faster, such as a relocated toolbar to the bottom of the app, with the new design also extending to Chrome for iOS.

Chrome 69 brings improvements to the way that Chrome manages passwords. Like Safari, Chrome now generates a secure password for you, saving it so that it can be used the next time that you sign in to a particular site.

The updated version of Chrome is also able to more accurately fill in passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers to make it quicker to get through checkout forms. Password and address information is stored within a Google account and can be accessed from the Chrome toolbar.

Chrome's Omnibox, which combines the search bar and the address bar, has been updated to display answers directly in the address bar without needing to open a new tab. This includes results on public figures or sporting events, word translations, weather information, and more.

Google is making Chrome more customizable with the option to create and manage shortcuts for favorite websites directly from the new tab page, and the update offers several under-the-hood improvements like better performance tracking and new CSS features.

Chrome 69 for Mac can be downloaded from the Chrome website, while Chrome 69 for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]
