You can also hope new tab overlays and greater customization. The latest Google Chrome Web Browser has ended up with a new customization menu for the new tab page, forced, dark mode, password checkup support and a bunch of other features for Mac, Windows, Linux, Android and iOS.

With the latest version of the new tab app you can do more than just add a backdrop-now Google provides a gallery of images and patterns, or you can choose your own, or customize the feel of the shortcuts.

In Forced Dark Mode, the site's color inversional theory is used to modify light sites to their chromatic dark versions and allows dark mode to set up any site whether or no dark theme can be supported.

Elsewhere, Google would shortly add Google's Password Checkup feature –-launched in February— into Chrome 78. This helps you to know when you sign up for a page that contains unknown credentials and, where possible, to change your password.

Certain new features include Tab Hover Cards, designed to help users access cramped browser toolbars, and a Click-to-Call app that enables you to highlight a phone number on a desktop web site and submit it to your Android phone — this functionality is not yet widely available.

Last but not least, some more technical stuff. Version 78 sees Google testing the new DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) protocol in Chrome, designed to help prevent spying, and Google developers have removed the old XSS Auditor–a security feature that has existed since Chrome 4 was released in 2009 and is now largely dead.
