Few hours ago the new version of the Chrome 70 web browser was unveiled. At the same time, a stable version of the Chromium project is available.
Chromium is the open source web browser project from which Google Chrome gets its source code. Browsers share most of the code and features, yet there are some minor differences in features and they have different licenses.
Main new features in Chrome 70
Within the main features that we can find in this new version of Google Chrome 70 We may find that the user has the opportunity to selectively activate plugins only for certain sites.
In this way too You can make use of the ban on the use of plugins for sites that are not included in the whitelist.
The individual activation mode of the plugin is also available on each page, in which the addition is enabled only after an explicit click on the icon in the panel.
These features can be used to guard against the hidden commission of non-specific action plugins, such as fishing for personal information from the page or substitution of advertising.
In addition to it added the ability to reload multiple tabs at once: you can now select a group of tabs and press "Ctrl + R" or the "Reload" button in the context menu;
We can find that this new version of Chrome 70 added experimental mode to quickly switch to open recommendation list tab in address bar for a page already open in another tab, a button will be displayed to quickly jump to this tab.
The three-step process to change the connection security indication is complete: the lock icon for HTTPS has been removed and the "Not secure" message color for HTTP connections has been changed from gray to red.
Added "File" indicator to address bar to highlight access to local resources. The previously proposed change, which eliminates the display of the "file: //" schema in the address bar, was rejected.
In addition, the input indicator has been changed, which now allows you to immediately understand if a user is online or not and if data sync is enabled in settings.
Automatic exit from full screen mode is provided in case of displaying dialog boxes, special authentication requests, payment forms and file selection windows.
The Exit Full Screen mode is designed to eliminate situations in which an attacker can push the user into wrong actions, manipulating the change in the surrounding context.
Added support for final TLS 1.3 protocol specification (RFC 8446), distinguished by the removal of outdated and untrusted cryptographic primitives (MD5, SHA-224) and capabilities (compression, renegotiation, non-AEAD ciphers, RSA and DH static key exchange, unix timestamp in messages Hello, etc.)
Works only in forward secret mode (compromising one of the keys in the long term does not allow decryption of the intercepted session), provides better performance, supports 0-RTT mode (eliminates delays when previously resuming) anovlennyh HTTPS connections) , ChaCha20 cipher stream supports, Poly1305 message authentication algorithm (MAC), Ed25519 digital signature-based authentication keys, HKDF (HMAC-based extraction and expansion key derivation function), algorithm-based keys x25519 (RFC 7748) and x448 (RFC 8031);
