Google Launches Chrome 66 Update
Google just rolled out Chrome 66 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. The Chrome update comes with several design changes, policy changes, new features (both for developers and users) and improved security.
Chrome 66 update will be made available to all in the next few weeks. Some of the major features included in the updated browser are the ability to export passwords and media auto-play changes.
The auto-playing of the content is switched off by default. i.e, YouTube videos no longer automatically play when you open a link in a new tab.
Google chrome’s effort to give users more control over the audio. An unexpected media playback is one of the major concerns of the users as it is not only irritating but also consumes unwanted data. In Chrome previous update, which was released earlier this year, the search giant allowed users to mute some of the sites.
Google chrome 66 autoplay will now only be allowed if a user has explicitly expressed an interest in the media, or if the media won’t play sound.
Chrome 66 new feature will allow Google to start giving SSL certificate errors for all the Symantec certificates issued before June 1, 2016. Eventually, Google plans to completely phase out Symantec certs by Chrome 70, which should be due in October.
