Google Chrome Celebrates A Decade Online

Google’s Chrome internet browser is celebrating a 10thbirthday in style – with a major upgrade from the floor upwards.

The shiny , new Chrome cements the browser as the world’s no 1 for browsing the web.

A host of new features and a screen redesign are aimed at making life online easier and more enjoyable and simpler for everyone.

To make this so, Google has added automatic passwords, quicker search results and the option of making the browser more personal.

New browser features for Chrome

Other powerful features that make Chrome a top browser include:

Translations on the go– If you are looking t a foreign web site a translate button should pop up straight away, but not, right click and select ‘translate to…’

Miracle multi-tabs– Group your browsing in multiple tabs and haul them off to a separate window to save resources

Key to navigation– Forget that mouse and jump tabs by press ‘Ctrl’ plus the tab number to move around

Site searches– Another short cut – this time with the tab key to search within the site you are viewing

Play your cards right– Enter your card data into your browser wallet to make online shopping quicker and easier

Perfect passwords – An upgraded password manager that you can still edit through settings

Dino surprise – An offline game that triggers from the spacebar or a screen tap. You can play with an internet connection by typing ‘chrome://dino”

Emotive emojis –Right click to access a menu

If you want to know if you have the latest Chrome, go to settings/about chrome. The latest version is 69.0.3497.81.

If you are still using an earlier version, once you’re in settings/about, Chrome will automatically start an update to the latest version.

How to clear the cache in Chrome

Some users are reporting difficulty accessing some popular web sites after the update. Google suggests clearing the browser cache and a restart should solve the problem.

To clear the cache, go to More tools in the browser’s top right and click ‘clear browsing data’, select your options and then click ‘clear data’.

Close and restart the browser.

Clearing the cache will not delete passwords or bookmarks, just cookies stored in the memory.
