Google on Tuesday released Chrome 73, the latest stable version of its venerable web browser for Mac and Windows computers. The new macOS version debuts Dark Mode support for macOS Mojave.
The Chrome 73 browser window will automatically display the darker colored theme whenever Dark Mode is enabled in macOS Mojave.
Other new features include support for keyboard media keys, tab grouping to make it easier to organize multiple tabs, and an automatic picture-in-picture that is enabled when the user swaps away from an active video.
The browser’s Settings includes a new Sync and Google Services section, making it easier to control data collection settings and other options. Also included are spell checking improvements, as well as a new badge API that will enable web app icons as a visual indicator for things like the number of remaining unread items.
There are also a large number of changes Chrome developers will be interested in the update, including signed HTTP exchanges, support for Progressive Web Apps on the Mac, and more. All of the changes are listed here.
Multiple security fixes also come along for the ride in Chrome 73. A list of the fixes are available in a Google blog post.
Chrome 73 is available using the update button in Chrome or through the Chrome website for new users.
