The most widely used web browser in the world, Google Chrome, just received some improvements that improve users’ access to information. The search and download experiences have been improved by these upgrades.
One of the biggest improvements is that Chrome now shows popular searches in the Android address bar. iOS users will also be able to use this functionality later this year. Additionally, for “eligible sites,” Chrome will provide pertinent search suggestions in the address bar on both Android and iOS.
You will notice a new section named “Related to this page” with suggestions for further searches, such as nearby restaurants or tourism destinations in Japan, if you are reading an article about Japan and click on the address bar.
Android’s Touch to Search, which launches when you press and hold on text, has also been improved. You may now locate related searches using this functionality as well. Let’s say you are reading an article when you come across a subject you would like to learn more about. You will now see a carousel of similar searches while using Touch to Search, allowing you to get additional details about it quickly.
To help you better narrow your searches, Chrome has doubled the number of search suggestions on mobile from 6 to 10.
On the other side, Google has improved the downloading experience on desktops for macOS, Windows, and ChromeOS, making it simpler to engage with the files you’ve recently downloaded.
The new download tray is situated in the Chrome address bar’s upper right corner. When the download is finished, an animated ring that displays the progress opens briefly before automatically closing to allow for uninterrupted browsing.
