Google has begun rolling out version 62 of its Chrome browser to the Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms. The new version includes changed security behaviors and new features for developers.

The first “Not secure” badge to the right of the URL in the address bar appeared this January on HTTP sites where password or credit card fields were present. Google is now extending the warning to any HTTP site where user data is entered. The badge will only appear after users begin entering information into a site.

Meanwhile, every HTTP site in Incognito will sport the “Not secure” warning as Google notes the increased expectation of privacy that users have in this mode. The end goal is for all non-HTTPS sites to eventually feature this badge.

On the macOS version of Chrome, various buttons will match the native look of the operating system, including a new background color, border radius, and padding.

Chrome 62 for desktop is now available for macOS, Windows, and Linux. Updates for Android and Chrome OS are coming soon.
