Google has released today version 83 of its Chrome web browser and this is a much bigger update than usual. The reason why Chrome 83 includes so many features is because Google canceled the Chrome 82 release due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As a result, some of the Chrome 82 features were pushed into Chrome 83, while others were rescheduled for later this year.
In addition to tab grouping and automatically blocking battery-killing ads, the browser is also getting a big set of improvements for security, safety, and privacy. These include enhanced privacy controls, new settings for managing cookie files, a new Safety Check option, new graphics for web form elements, a new API for detecting barcodes, and a new anti-XSS security feature, among many many others.
This update also includes a Secure DNS option for users. Secure DNS portals act as a middleman between your computer and the site you're visiting. Chrome uses a DNS-over-HTTPS protocol and automatically updates users to the safer browsing method as long as their service provider supports it. If you want to use a different DNS offering from another company, like the CIRA, for example, you'll be able to configure it in the 'Advance Security' setting.
