The Google Chrome browser for desktop has been updated to version 91.0.4472.77. This version comes with several fixes and improvements which Google has outlined. The update is rolling out for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Google’s own Chromebook computers.
What’s new in Chrome 91:
Chrome 91 allows web applications to start up automatically once you have signed in to your Google account in the browser and right-clicked on the app icon.
Moreover, Chrome 91 also allows you to copy and paste files into a webpage. For instance, if you are replying to an email, you no longer need to click on the attachment icon to add a document. While that same option still exists, you also get the option now to copy the document from File Explorer and then paste it into the message, meaning your parents shouldn’t need to call you to the computer nearly as often now as they have more ways to have created a successful attachment.
Additionally, if you use websites that have several domain extensions, you will now be able to have your credentials saved for each of those domains, For instance, in the case of Google, it would mean no matter what country’s version of Google you wish to browser, each one would give you the option of saving your username and password. For a website to offer this, they would need to add an asset links JSON file.
Another standout feature of Chrome 91 is the option to follow a website. Similar to the old Google RSS Reader, you can now use Chrome’s menu to select whether you would like to follow a website. Any new content from such a website would then appear in a “Following” section of the browser.
To update Chrome, open the browser and head to Settings and more > Help > About Google Chrome. The browser will then automatically check for updates. If you have just opened Chrome, the browser will have automatically updated when it was closed.
