Google Chrome is used by billions of users around the world and is one of the most popular web browsers. The Google-owned web browser offers new features and bug fixes through regular updates. Some of these features are available to all users, while other features are only available in beta or hidden under checkboxes. Like every year, Chrome also released an update this year.
Google in its blog February 8 announced the addition of new features to the browser. The desktop version of the web browser is getting a new feature dubbed Journeys, which allows users to revisit sites they’ve previously searched for. With Journeys, the search giant is helping to organize your browsing history by eliminating the process of manually searching for previously viewed pages. The function will display a list of relevant sites that users have visited a few days or weeks ago. Users can access Journeys by visiting the browser’s history page or by typing the appropriate word in the address bar. Chrome will then display a “Resume Search” option with a list of sites you’ve previously visited.
“Journeys” in “history”
At this point, it seems that the new feature could be a much more viable solution than digging into the search history of that site you visited three weeks ago, but no longer remember the details. If you’ve been up to your neck in research on tryptophan and other amino acids and need to see all the related pages, then you can use Journeys. The Journeys page will prominently display the sites you’ve spent more time on, as well as suggest other options based on what you’ve been looking for. With this feature, users can group sites by topic or category
Google notes that you can remove certain sites included in your “journeys”, erase entire fragments of your history, and if not needed, also completely disable this feature. None of this is saved to your Google account, so you don’t have to worry about past “travels” haunting your browsing history on mobile devices – at least for now (Google wants to expand the feature to other devices in the future). ). The feature is currently available on Chrome desktop on all operating systems in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, and Turkish.
For now, Journeys is limited to the browser on the device you’re using, so for example, if you searched on your Android phone and Chromebook, you won’t be able to see results from your phone on your Chromebook, or vice versa. But if Journeys proves popular, you can be sure that Google will make it sync across all devices and tie the feature to your Google account, not your current device. There is no version for Android or iOS yet, but will be coming soon.

Finally, Google is adding some new widgets to Chrome on Android (which were first seen in beta).
in 2021). Two widgets come with text, voice, objective, and private search options, but they come in different formats: one is presented with the Chrome address bar at the top and four icons at the bottom, and the other has a horizontal layout with the address bar to the left of the icons. There’s also a separate Google dinosaur game widget that appears when you’re using Chrome offline. You can add widgets by long-pressing the Chrome icon. This is an easy way to start a quick search or jump over cacti with a small T-Rex.
Also, Google Chrome now allows users to change the background and color of the browser. This feature allows users to create different backgrounds for different profiles. You can change Chrome’s background and color by selecting the “Customize Chrome” option listed under the new tab.
In addition, Chrome users can now highlight a specific part of the page for the recipient before sharing a link with the new link exchange feature. The new feature will directly open the highlighted part of the page instead of the top of the page after the recipient clicks on the shared link.
Google Chrome has also introduced tab search, which will help users search for a specific tab among the many tabs open in the browser. This is useful when the user opens several tabs and finds it difficult to find a specific one. The new tabbed search feature makes searching easier. To search for a specific tab, users need to click the tab search icon in the top Chrome window and enter a keyword for the tab they want to search for.
Sometimes we open multiple tabs in Google Chrome but forget to pause a music video or video file. This makes listening to other audio files difficult. The new feature will make it easier for users to mute the sound on a specific tab. Recent builds of Chrome Canary come with a new checkbox called “Manage UI mute using tabs”. The new checkbox activates a feature that will allow you to mute the sound played in any application with a single click after activating the checkbox. The browser currently displays a sound indicator on the tab when a sound is playing.
Google update Chrome 99, released as a beta, contains a new shortcut that will allow users to access downloads with a single click. The new shortcut is available in the toolbar in the upper right corner of the browser. The label is very similar to the one displayed in the browser edgewhich turns blue when something is loaded and turns gray when the element has loaded.
“Spaces” instead of “Current”
There were no closings of old applications. Google has announced that it is shutting down the app
presented in 2019. Currents was meant to empower people to have meaningful conversations and interactions across the organization, helping keep everyone in the loop and allowing leaders to connect with their employees.
will now be available starting in 2023, with plans to phase out Google Currents and move the remaining content and communities to Spaces,” the company said in a blog post. “Before we do that, we will provide new features in Spaces that will help you communicate and collaborate more effectively.”
These include support for large communities and communication with management, advanced search, content moderation tools, and more. The company said it is also investing in the app development platform’s capabilities, as well as enterprise-grade security and compliance, including data protection, data loss prevention (DLP) and storage support. Google will announce data migration transition dates and other milestones for organizations using Currents in the coming months.
