If you don't want to invest in 1Password or similar services, although I'd say they offer even better protection than browser password managers, then make sure you check out Chrome's new password-saving tricks. Once created, Chrome will save it and automatically sign you in to the site, so long as you are logged into your Google account on a PC, notebook, or phone.

In brief: Google's Chrome browser has become a force to be reckoned with as of late. One of Google's biggest focuses in 2017 has been their push to get all of the web encrypted through SSL. Over time, Chrome has gotten faster, less resource-hungry, and more feature-rich.

Unfortunately, one feature that we wish Chrome would include is a built-in blocker for in-browser mining scripts. Thus far, Microsoft has seemingly swung and missed on several at-bats with its Edge browser for consumers, but if the Android downloads are any indication, there is interest in new browser experiences; maybe it'll just take 10 years.

With this new update, the Chrome Android version gets updated to 69.0.3497.76 and along with it comes a more minimalistic and rounded Material design.

Google started to roll out Google Chrome 69 Stable to all supported systems yesterday.

Indeed, the flatter, rounded design looks modern, and makes navigation easier when you have several tabs open.

Trump threatens to end NAFTA
On Friday, a senior USA official emphasized that Washington was ready to move ahead with just Mexico if Canada failed to sign on. The withdrawal process would require Trump to give Mexico and Canada 6 months' notice of his intent to leave the pact.

CNN Analyst Calls Trump Tweet ‘Impeachable Offense’
Trump would probably argue that he's saying no indictments should be handed down this close to an election, regardless of party. Rarely, though, has he made it so explicit that he views the Justice Department as a political tool that is now being misused.

Two tropical storms forming in eastern Pacific
The NHC is keeping an eye on a tropical wave (or disturbance) moving off the west African coast. But rain was still pounding the island chain, touching off flooding on Oahu and Kauai.

Perhaps, most useful is the "Already Opened" feature in the Omnibox, which will alert us tab warriors of page searches that we now have buried in pile of open tabs. With Chrome 68, HTTPS URLs were shown in green.

Don't like the new layout and design of the user interface in Google Chrome 69? Chrome is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an entirely new aesthetic, which brings tweaked browser tabs, a customizable New Tab page, and a revamped suggestions menu, among other things.

Circling back around to the New Tab Page, Chrome will now let you customize it by adding your own shortcuts and even adding your own wallpaper.

Beyond the roundedness, users should also be able to search both on mobile and the desktop, quicker.

You can search for weather, specific answers, sports scores and much more. All this info is saved to your personal Google account and can be easily accessed via the Chrome toolbar. For example, if you're a person who loves to have lots of tabs open, you can still do that, but the icons for websites are more clearly visible when you have an enormous amount of tabs open. Simply type a question into the browser, and if Google can pull an easy to display answer, it will display it directly in the search results as shown in the image above.

The Smart search box a.k.a Omnibox is also getting smarter.
