The latest version of Google Chrome is now live for all platforms and with the new version comes a plethora of brand new features.

Google releases Chrome 78: password check, dark mode & much more added |

The new features are as follows; new customization for the New Tab page, forced dark mode, Password Checkup, Tab Hover Cards, Click-To-Call and more. Firstly, the New Tab page originally just allowed users to customize the background, now Google gives users a choice between a large selection of images or themes, while also giving the option of shortcut customization.

Forced Dark Mode is exactly what it sounds like. Google Chrome will now convert all websites on the web to a dark theme, whether or not they support it in their back-end. Instead of adding new source code to every individual website, Google has used color inversion theory to change the light websites to a dark theme. Tab Hover Cards gives users more accessible navigation through their chosen cards, while 'Click-to-Call' adds an option to send a phone number found on the web to the users Android phone.

For a more extensive breakdown of each of the new features, head on over to this link here.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
