Chrome's developers have been busy lately. Just today, we spotted a Sneak Peek feature that loads a link in an overlay on the same page, and now we've come across another flag in Chrome Dev/Canary that brings an updated interface to your passwords, integrating the Google Passwords UI natively without redirecting you to a webpage. If you head over to chrome://flags/#google-password-manager (copy and paste the address, linking to it doesn't work), you can enable the Google Password Manager UI. After a reboot, you'll find that going to Chrome's settings and tapping on Passwords opens a new interface that shows off your passwords in Google's new Material look. You can search for passwords, tap any of them to view the username and password, copy it, and delete the item entirely. Option

Once upon a time, Internet Explorer ruled the World Wide Web. As time went on, IE languished and was knocked off its perch by Firefox and Google Chrome. Then Microsoft fought back with a new browser called Edge. Image: MicrosoftImage: Microsoft Edge was new inside and out, built to provide the best browsing experience on Windows 10. That was three years ago. Today, despite the fact that it's an excellent browser, Edge is still struggling to draw much of a crowd. Clearly Microsoft decided that it was time for a dramatic shift in strategy. The company has announced that it's going to completely overhaul Edge. To do that, Microsoft will be building it around the same code that drives Google Chrome. In a blog post today, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore announced that ...

Should You Disable Site Isolation in Google Chrome

By now, you are bound to have heard about 'Spectre,' the ominously dubbed security flaw that affects nearly all modern CPUs. And rightfully so, since the vulnerability revolves around nefarious applications and websites accessing data from areas where they really shouldn’t. To cope with this issue specifically, browsers have developed various security mechanisms, and one such Chrome-specific implementation is Site Isolation.First introduced in Chrome v63 as an optional security feature, Site Isolation now runs by default since version 67. Technically speaking, it’s quite adept at mitigating speculative execution attacks (on which Spectre is based) due to the sandboxed processes that it uses.But just like with anything good, it comes at a price — to be specific, performance. So, would di

At the 2017 Chrome Web Summit Conference, Google introduced the world to the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX) – a database constructed from multiple samples pulled from real Chrome users’ web browsing experiences. According to Google, the goal was to “capture the full range of external factors that shape and contribute to the final user experience.” A few short months later, Google updated their PageSpeed Insights tool to score two separate categories: “speed” and “optimization.” The familiar PageSpeed Insights’ grade based on technical issues and Google’s recommended fixes was moved to the Optimization section, while the newly-introduced Page Speed section started labeling webpages as ‘fast,’ ‘average,’ or ‘slow’ based on the median value of one’s Firs
