New version of Chrome comes with privacy upgrade

image

Google has released Chrome 97, the latest iteration of its internet browser, offering not just the usual tweaks and upgrades, but also way more control over the data websites store on individual visitors.

Unlike previous versions, where users could only delete individual website cookies, on Chrome 97, users are getting better privacy tools and can delete all of the data a website stores.

To test the new feature, navigate to Settings > Security and Privacy > Site Settings > View Permissions and Data Stored Across Sites.

Elsewhere, Chrome 97 also boosts the behavior of web apps. In older versions, the top app bar could not be properly utilized. Now, designers can use it for search bars, navigation buttons, or color accents.

Google has also made improvements for how zoom works on the mobile version of the browser. On desktop, the browser remembers zoom settings for different sites, so if you zoom TechRadar Pro to 150% and close the tab, next time you navigate to the website, it will zoom back into 150%.

This feature has now come to the Android version of the browser, as well. To activate it, make sure to enable the flag found at chrome:flags#enable-accessibility-page-zoom.

Zoom can be tweaked by tapping the lock icon in the address bar.

Another feature that’s made it to the live version is the CSS’ ability to detect screens supporting HDR content. With the feature now live, web devs can enable HDR content without ruining the UX for those without HDR displays.

Patches and upgrades for Chrome usually happen automatically, as soon as they’re available. However, you can still check to see if an update is ready by clicking the three-dot button in the upper right corner of the browser and navigating to Help > About Google Chrome.

Google has also pushed a number of smaller tweaks, such as the feature policy for keyboard API, or auto-expand details elements. You can read more about these on the Google Blog.

Let me fix that for you.

"Google Chrome now lets you think you can delete the data a website has on you, but in reality, it's simply removed from your own view. Of course, it's hidden under a private API, in which if you have enough capital, can access said API."

there you go..

You need real money fam, I'm talking CEO of a big fortune 500 company type money. If the check is right, best believe that data is still accessible.

Just because the front end tells you it's gone, well, you don't have access to the back end, to see if the data is truly gone...

Yeah but for the average user it should be fine.

Doubt majority of people who try it out have CEO’s of Fortune 500’s dropping the bag to track their Google mentions.

Right, but lying to the users about the removal of data being tracked, isn't a good look.

Y'all shut up, this is a just a feature, stop hating.

This a feature that already existed but in a more technical way that the layman couldn't understand. This is basically letting John doe delete his cookies, local storage, etc

There are still a million ways you can be tracked with the front end (i.e. fingerprinting) and obviously you can't control what they save on you in the back end (and no you don't need to be a fortune 500 ceo to access that data), but this is a pretty generic a*s feature, that techies have had to workaround with incognito etc. Now they won't have to as much, but they still will anyway

There's no controversy here

Based on Chromium, not Chrome. Microsoft the baseline of what makes Chrome and has stopped the Google elements, added their own features, privacy targeted tools and managed to make it run more efficiently while doing so.

So yes, Edge > Chrome....for now at least.

Brave been had this sh*t.

Google products are all sh*t nowadays. Just spy software for the NSA. fu*k google and their bullsh*t search engine.

They have become the Ministry of Truth (propaganda). I would strongly advise not using any of their products, and start reading up on reddit/degoogle.

If you legit believe Google isn't storing your data via the cloud....

I don't even know what to tell you.
