Chrome 94

At least two types of improvements can be made to all types of software. One is the new functions or visual tweaks that are what attracts the most attention, but you can also tweak what is not seen so that the user experience improves. That is the point where Google seems to be with its browser, since, after v93 of the same, yesterday He launched Chrome 94 with changes that are not seen. Or well, in part.

And it is that among the highlights of what has come along with Chrome 94 we have improvements in the graphic section, but they are not design modifications, so seeing looks, but it is more of a sensation. Below you have the list of the most outstanding novelties that have arrived together with the 94th version of the Google browser.
