Chrome 69 released with new UI and random password generator

https://www.zdnet.com/article/chrome...ord-generator/

Google gives Chrome its first major facelift since its release in 2008.

This new user interface is easy to spot because it uses a predominantly white color tone along with rounded tabs, a big shift from Chrome's regular grayish UI with angled tabs.

But besides the unignorable new UI, Google engineers also have other surprises for Chrome 69 users.

The one that's most impressive, at least on the security front, is Chrome's new built-in random password generator.

Every time users will focus their cursor inside a password field, Google will generate a random password and offer it to the user. If the user chooses to use it, Chrome will automatically save it in its password store. But be advised, users must be logged into a Google account to use this new Chrome feature.
I'll be checking out the password manager .....

Other new features are, as yet, undisclosed by reviewers.

Old:



New:



The tabs are square with rounded corners, the address bar is circular and some of the "shadings" are different.

Additionally:

Chrome can more accurately fill in your passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers, so that you can breeze through online checkout forms.

When it’s time to create a new password, Chrome will now generate one for you (so you’re not using your puppy’s name for all of your passwords anymore).

Chrome will now show you answers directly in the address bar without having to open a new tab.

I think browsers look better with dark toolbars. Easier on my eyes. This is Chrome 69 with the 'Morpheon Dark' theme:
