The stable version of the Google Chrome 95 desktop browser is now official. In this update, Google has upgraded several important new features as well as fixed the bugs of the previous version. The first is the addition of the secure payment confirmation function in the desktop browser. Google adds a new secure payment confirmation function to Chrome 95. In addition, this function is based on the WebAuthn standard. When the user confirms the transaction payment, a pop-up window will appear asking the user to add more information and an authentication request to verify the user’s identity.
Secondly, Google has improved the experience of PWA-related applications. In the latest version of Chrome, the EyeDropper API has been used to improve the experience of website applications and PWA applications. At the same time, Chrome has also set some PWA applications to certain URLs at this stage. Furthermore, the potential default opening application of the type file makes the user experience of the PWA application more biased towards the local application.
The stable version of the Chrome 95 desktop browser can now be downloaded or updated on the Chrome official website. However, it will take some time before this update becomes available for Android phone users. Nevertheless, the change for Android users in this update is that the user interface supports the new Material You design language based on Android 12 and will have a new theme engine.

Google Chrome Canary browser Android version is testing a new page zoom
According to MSPoweruser reports, Google is developing new accessibility options for the Android version of the Chrome browser. This feature will also come with a new page zoom option. This option works better than the previous option of clicking and unclicking.
The GIF image above shows the useability of this new feature. This feature will be available in the page information dropdown menu. However, there is a possibility that it will move to other locations in the future. Furthermore, Chrome will remember the zoom level and use it automatically the next time you visit the same page. This feature is available in Chrome Canary and users need to access the “Accessibility Page Zoom” to use it.
