Chrome 109 introduces new CSS and support for MathML

Chrome 109

Google released the first update of 2023 to its web browser yesterday. Available six weeks after the earlier versionplatforms, Chrome 109 that they delivered to us has once again been one of those versions that does not include major changes for the end user, but for developers. As in v108, support has been introduced for more CSS rules, the language with which web pages are dressed and look good; without it, only with HTML the pages would be ugly, not to say ridiculous.

On the other hand, Google continues to work to change the section on cookies, although we already know that in the case of a company whose majority of revenue comes from advertising and knowing our habits, I wouldn't know whether to say if this is good or bad news. In the release note are also collected various security patches with which the company has given rewards ranging from 1000 to 8000 dollars.

Chrome 109 highlights

  • Support for the length unit "lh" in CSS. The unit "lh" is used to express CSS lengths relative to line height.
  • Support for the "hyphenate-limit-chars" CSS property to specify the minimum number of characters in a hyphenated word.
  • Initial support for CHIPS, Cookies with Independent Partitioned State. CHIPS is part of the plan to deal with Google's plans to deprecate third-party cookies. This feature allows third-party cookies to be partitioned per top-level site using the "Partitioned" cookie attribute.
  • Origin Private File System (OPFS) on Android.
  • WebTransport Bring Your Own Buffer (BYOB) readers allow you to minimize buffer copies and reduce memory allocations.
  • Support for MathML Core as a language for describing embedded math notation in HTML and SVG.
  • Auto-range support for variable fonts in font-weight, font-style, and font-stretch descriptors within @font-face rules.

Chrome 109 is now available from your official website for all supported systems.
