Google Chrome Turns 10 And Brings With It A New Redesign And Some Features

Farai Mudzingwa Avatar

For companies, anniversaries work a bit differently than the way it works for people. Whereas people expect gifts when they reach a certain milestones, for companies milestones are usually a test to see if they can remain relevant and actually keep innovating. This was the case with iPhone when they reached 10 last year and introduced the polarising iPhone X. This will be the case for Samsung as their Galaxy line of smartphones also reaches a decade.

It seems expectations are actually ratcheted up and no one cares to look back. With Google’s Chrome Browser celebrating its 10th anniversary yesterday, it seems the team at Google is not resting on their laurels and they’ve brought forward a fresh coat of paint to keep things exciting. The Google Chrome browser has finally caught up with other Google apps and their material design language.

Managing passwords

The new Google Chrome also claims it will manage passwords better and faster than before and your passwords will be linked to your Gmail account.
