Google has finally launched the Version 80 of the Chrome browser for Android and Desktop. The latest version comes with a number of security patches and updates along with some new features that will be a blessing for the users who are annoyed by the website notifications. The fresh update is expected to be rolled out in the next few weeks. The users of Windows, Linux and MacOS will be able to get their hands on the new update Chrome 80.
Chrome users can check the availability of the update by clicking on the three dots on the top right corner of the browser and look for the Update Google Chrome button. People who are not able to see it, there are possibilities that they are already working on the latest version. For the Android mobile devices, the users can go to the Play Store and hit the hamburger menu on the top left. The users can hit the My Apps and Games and hit the refresh button to see if any updates are available.
People who are everyday users of the Chrome will be happy to see the quieter notifications that has been introduced with the new update. There is also a feature that can block the notifications from the websites by default. Earlier the users had to manually disable them before they were blocked. There are three ways by which the quieter notifications can be enabled. The users can either opt for quieter prompts manually, or can disable them completely. The Settings has the button ‘Sites can ask to send notifications’ which has to be enabled through Site Settings> Notifications. Then you can check the box that says ‘Use quieter messaging’.
In terms of security, Chrome 80 now restricts the cookies from the first-party access by default. The users can be protected from data being transferred across the sites by using SameSite tags.
