Google Chrome 94 browser release

The release of the browser Google Chrome 94 took place. Chromium 94 was also released. Let’s note some changes in the new release. Chrome is a browser from Google based on the free browser Chromium. It is partially proprietary. It is cross-platform, available for desktop and mobile operating systems.

What’s new

  • The release schedule for new releases has changed. Now new releases will be released every 4 weeks, instead of 6. This decision was made to ensure that users receive fixes for vulnerabilities, bugs and new features faster.
  • For all desktop operating systems and Android, HTTPS-First mode is now available, in which when accessing a site via HTTP, it first tries to open the HTTPS version.
  • For public HTTP resources, access to local or internal URLs is prohibited.
  • Added the “Sharing hub” function, which allows you to share the current page. You can use send to device, receive QR code, send to third-party sites. Send to Devices is available for registered users only.
  • Chrome Sync is no longer supported on Chrome 48 and older.
  • The browser settings interface has been updated. Now instead of one long page of settings, all settings are divided into separate sections.
  • Added a new Idle Detection API that allows sites to detect user inactivity. This way, for example, messaging apps can choose the device to send the notification to.
  • Added a new page chrome: // whats-new – “What’s new in Chrome”, which displays information about changes in new releases.
  • And other changes.

Note that some features are being introduced gradually and may not be available to some users.
