I can not edit my post anymore :(

PM a mod and they will edit it for you.

P.S. It's about time you Chrome junkies finally got some common sense and create a single thread for all of your releases. Firefox has had their own for more than a year.

Absolutely nothing. Google gets the concept of not messing around with GUI and just focusing on what really matters: performance and features. If only Mozilla could take a hint, they could catch up on those areas.

I just don't like them aesthetically. I would like something more minimal and (at least apparently) more OS integrated.

I disagree. The tabs in Chrome are very simple, minimalist and efficient. I really don't like the angular tabs seen in other browsers and Mozilla has clearly come to the same conclusion as they're looking to change to a style similar to Chrome's tabs. Google hit on a very good UI from the get-go and it's one of the few browsers to not undergo considerable visual changes.

Yes, but Australis tabs are, for me, more aesthetically pleasant.

Don't see that much of a difference

I like the curves and how everything is integrated in the title bar. The GUI in Australis, for me, it's more elegant while in Chrome it's... blank, for a lack of a better word.

I'm running the latest Canary build (dev build?) along with the latest Chromium build as well. Anything Flash eventually crashes on me in Canary, but not Chromium. Actually thinking about going back to the beta channel until the Flash issue is resolved, as it is rather annoying obviously. I've reported it so hopefully other people are having the same issue and Google can work on it at some point :)

I hadn't seen any flickering. Any place specific you saw it? Like, full page scrolling or full screen games or something? I can try to see if I can reproduce the issue I suppose.

      Chrome Canary adds the ability to rename browser windows to improve multi-tasking
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Google is adding the ability for users to name Chrome windows for easier window management and switching. The latest Chrome Canary builds now let users right-click on the title bar or on individual windows in the taskbar and choose to name the windows. The feature is not hidden behind any flags and should be available to all Chrome Canary users running the recent builds.

      The feature is a nifty addition for those that separate tabs in different windows based on the contents of the tabs or to segregate between work and personal pages. Generally, browser windows with multiple tabs display the name of the currently open tab and a count of the number of other tabs, which can get confusing. This behavior also exists when switching between tabs using the Alt-Tab shortcut.

      The renamed windows make it easier to ascertain which window to switch to and can be constantly tweaked depending on the requirements. This, in addition to the other tab management features recently added to Chrome, greatly improve multi-tasking and tab management on the browser, especially for power users that spend a lot of time on the web.

      While the feature is already live for Windows users on Canary builds, a Chromium entry from June suggests that the feature has also been in the works for macOS for a few months now. Therefore, users should also begin seeing the feature on Apple’s desktop OS. Considering that it is just beginning to show up in the Canary builds, it could be a while before the feature makes it to the stable channel.

      Google is permanently removing paid extensions from the Chrome Web Store
      by João Carrasqueira



      Earlier this year, Google decided to temporarily suspend the ability to create paid browser extensions on the Chrome Web Store. While temporary, there was no set date for the measure to be reverted, and as it turns out, it won't be. Google has announced (as spotted by 9to5Google) that the ability to publish new paid items on the Chrome Web Store is now disabled permanently as of yesterday, September 21.

      The initial ban was put in place due to the high number of fraudulent transactions, but that reasoning wasn't mentioned anywhere in Google's announcement. The company simply says there are many more methods available for developers to monetize their extensions, and that they'll need to migrate to one of them if they're interested in monetizing extensions.

      The payment and licensing system will be shut down gradually over the next few months. As of today, developers can't create new paid items on the Chrome Web Store, and free trials for existing items will be disabled on December 1. On February 1, all payments will be disabled, even for existing items.

      However, the licensing API will remain active for a while longer, and while it will be eventually shut down, Google didn't provide a date for that to happen yet. In the meantime, it can still be used to track users with active licenses.

      Google Chrome 85.0.4183.121 (offline installer)
      by Razvan Serea



      The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

      Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

      Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

      Important to know! The offline installer links do not include the automatic update feature.

      Google working to add the ability for Chrome to automatically create tab groups
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Google debuted tab groups with Chrome 85, bringing the ability to group similar tabs, rename, and color code them for enhanced tab management. The firm is also set to add the option to collapse groups, which is currently available in Chrome Canary. Now, a new Chromium commit has been spotted that suggests that the search giant is working to add the ability to automatically create groups.

      The experimental flag is already present in Chrome Canary under the ‘Tab Groups Auto Create’ name. However, the feature seems to still be under development as enabling the flag does not activate any features. Another entry for the feature details the possible function of the feature. The verbiage suggests that Chrome will be able to automatically create a tab group when users open “a tab with the same domain as its parent tab”.

      Other references in the Chromium entry point towards UI elements to enable this feature, a scrollable tab strip, and more. It is not clear as to what other capabilities the feature will bring when it does make it to all users. While the option to create groups for webpages of the same domain is a nifty addition, it will be interesting to see how the feature evolves, and if it intelligently groups pages with similar content, something that could rival the likes of Edge’s Collections.
