Google Chrome beta 85.0.4183.48

Download/Usage Note
This is a beta build of Google Chrome, and may include features that introduce instability to the browser. Use with caution.


Minimal UI: Chrome's overall UI has remained stable since version 1.0: a minimal two-row window with tabs resting above the address bar (Omnibox), three browser controls (Back, Forward, Stop/Reload), a star-shaped toggle for bookmarking, and a settings icon. As you install extensions, active icons appear to the right of the address bar; but beyond that, Google has strict restrictions on adding visible add-ons. That means no toolbars or any undesired overlays, which used to be standard practice.

Chrome is minimal for a reason: to maintain a clean browsing experience with maximum screen space for websites. A new Immersive mode hides UI elements to create a full-screen experience without distractions.

Incognito mode: Incognito is Chrome's response to Mozilla's Private Browsing feature. Incognito opens a new window that disables history recording and tracking cookies, and reduces the amount of traceable breadcrumbs. Contrary to popular belief, this does not mean you are free to act unethically, as your ISP still tracks your activity. Chrome version 36 improves upon Incognito mode's design, which features cleaner pop-up notifications and alerts when the browser encounters a crash.

Dev tools: Under the hood, Chrome has some awesome features that make it developer friendly: hardware acceleration for rendering 3D CSS effects; Google's own NaCl (Native Client), which allows secure execution of C and C++ codes within the browser; and an in-house JavaScript engine that improves load times with every release. The Inspect Element tool lays out a website's Document Object Model intuitively for those who want to understand how a site's objects are interacting in HTML and CSS.

Internet Explorer: If you run an older computer, you may have to use Internet Explorer's insecure browser to get Chrome. Try not to stay in those waters for too long.

Google Chrome Beta is more than just a simple browser but a service that is dedicated to improving Chrome to give its users the best and high-quality performance. Other than being constantly updated and installed with new features, it functions just the same as the normal Google Chrome. If you want to be the first to experience the latest updates and have a fear of missing out, Google Chrome Beta is the one for you.Google Chrome is the lightweight flagship browser that originated from an open-source Google project called Chromium. It is now one of the more widely used browsers, with a vast ecosystem of extensions and add-ons, a robust JavaScript engine, and a rapid-release development cycle that keeps it competitive.

Google has regularly set the standard for speed, stability, and security, so it’s no surprise that Chrome’s market share continues to rise, especially when combined with its mobile cousin on Android. Google’s Internet browser is for casual user and developer alike.

Constant updates and new features are needed in order to improve service. Google Chrome Beta exists for the purpose of testing these new updates out before they are given the go signal for everyone to use. Basically, users who prefer to browse using the beta version are given the chance to test first all of Google Chrome’s new updates and features. Afterward, they can submit their feedback and opinions, which will be valued and used as a guide by the developers in further enhancing the new features until they are at its peak best.
