Google has just launched Chrome 65 for Android, Linux, Mac, and Windows. This release includes changes in the Material Design and advanced developer features.

According to the tech giant, users can update their Chrome to the latest version with the use of the silent updater that is a part of the browser. Another option would be to download the update visiting, said Google. 

The Chrome team published through Google blog’s Chrome Releases, “This will roll out over the coming days/weeks.” They also said that it contains not just improvements, but also includes 45 security fixes. They highlighted that these fixes were contributed by their external researchers.

Google’s Material Design covers some visual changes, which the Chrome team admits to making it easier for users to identify the websites that they wanted to visit. For instance, there will be favicons or a small iconic image that will represent the site. These favicons will appear next to the Omnibox suggestions. Also, Chrome 65 alters the link of the Email Page Location to a Share submenu for those using Mac. The submenu will help users share the URL of the existing tab through Share Extensions in MacOS.

Chrome is a major platform for web developers and currently has more than a billion users.
