Google Chrome Address Bar Gets Upgraded for Faster Searches


Google Chrome Address Bar Upgrade

Google Chrome, the most used web browser, is getting some important updates. All of them focus on the address bar. To be exact, Google has announced five of them. These Google Chrome address bar upgrades aim to make your use of the browser’s address bar more efficient.

All the improvements made today on the Google Chrome address bar will roll out over the next few months. And they will be available in both the desktop and mobile versions of the browser.

Suggestions for Unvisited Sites

Google Chrome is implementing a new feature on the address bar to help users find new websites. As users type a search term into the bar, the browser will suggest relevant and popular sites. These site suggestions will pop up even if the users have never visited them before.

Popular Site Suggestions Chrome

In simpler words, the new suggestions feature for unvisited sites will promote the discovery of new content. It will be based on what’s relevant and currently popular to the user’s search keyword.

This Google Chrome address bar upgrade presents an opportunity for SEO professionals. It will enable them to get more site visibility through the address bar of the browser. Of course, to get the most out of the update, their sites need to be optimized for the relevance and popularity of certain keywords.

Smarter Autocomplete on Google Chrome

Google is rolling out a “smarter” version of the autocomplete feature present in Chrome. Previously, the browser would suggest the full website URLs only if you typed them before. But after the address bar update, the browser will autocomplete based on the word. And it doesn’t even matter if the specific URL is new to you.

Smart Autocomplete Google Chrome

To illustrate, if you type “flights” on the Google Chrome address bar, it can autocomplete to Google Flights if you’ve searched flights before. The “smarter” version reinforces the use of keywords within the URL structure. That means the URLs don’t need the search term at the front. The bar will suggest the website URLs even when the term is at the end of the URL structure.

That includes iOS, Android, and desktop.
