Google Chrome is the most popular browser on Android. Every few weeks we have a new update ready, as we have already discussed on occasion. The new version of the browser is number 76, which is released now in the form of a beta. Although the official launch of it will not take place until the end of July, as has already been confirmed.
A new beta that leaves us with a series of news. Google Chrome introduces some improvements, related to privacy. In addition, the dark mode is also the protagonist once again, a function that we have been seeing in the beta of the browser for a while, and we already know how to activate it.
In Chromium’s own blog they have announced and some of these new features that we can expect in this new version of the popular browser. A good way to generate expectation, in addition to the fact that there are already users who can try these functions that are now being introduced in it. What new functions leave us this time?
Incognito mode is one of the most used functions in Google Chrome, that we already told you how it worked. Although this mode has long encountered many obstacles along the way. Since although many users use it to navigate, thus avoiding cookies or showing the sites they visit in the history, there were more and more problems on the part of web pages. Many web pages did not display content when browsing in this mode.
Incognito mode detection is used, so that then these contents cannot be seen on the web. An annoying problem, which forces the user in these cases to navigate using the normal mode in the browser. Something that not everyone wants, but that will be corrected with this new beta of the popular browser. Since this incognito mode is going to be hidden in it.
What is done is that the detection of incognito mode in Google Chrome is now much more complicated. What will allow users to be able to navigate at all times using this mode, without being left without seeing some content. Exactly what was expected from the browser. Thus, it will be possible to navigate without leaving a trace or without cookies being stored on what has been visited. Good news for this version 76 of the browser on Android.

Dark mode is still an important thing going forward in Google Chrome. Already in previous versions we have been able to see that the browser allowed to activate it, something that we can do with the flags menu in it. Now new changes are announced in this regard, which continue to show the progress that this dark mode is going to have. From now on, the dark interface in the browser will be activated on those web pages prepared for it. Although this will be as long as the user also has dark mode activated on their phone. In this sense, Google leaves the ball on the roof of web developers, who will therefore have to introduce dark mode in their pages.
What’s more, payments using Google Chrome are another important element in this new beta. In this case, developers have the possibility to more easily and securely implement purchases on their mobile-friendly web pages. Progressive Web Apps are also improved. In this case, we have opted to improve its execution and installation on the phone’s desktop.
