World's most popular browser about to get even better
Google Chrome the world's most popular browser will soon getting better.

Google Chrome is about to get a big update which will make the world most internet browser better for its many users.

Search engine Google are already working on the ad blocking update which will be out soon for chrome users.

And a game changing update will mute auto play videos is also getting released Google Chrome user in January 2018.

But ahead of these new features launching Chrome users will also be able to download another big update in next few weeks.

The next version for Google Chrome is arriving on October 2017 and then a week later the update for Chrome OS will drop.

When that happens users will see "Not Secure" warning in the Google Chrome browser address bar for certain websites.

This warning will appear in two different scenarios.
  • Users will be altered if you start entering data on a site which does not encrypted your connection.
This means that it does not scramble the data between it and a browser and puts you at risk from hackers seeing everything you do.
The new features extends a protection that Google first added back in January according to Yahoo.
Google Chrome protection ensured a "not secure" flag appeared on pages that accepted passwords or credit card details without encrypt ions.
The "not secure" warning will also appear when a chrome user visits an encrypted site while in incognito mode.
New version of Google Chrome will show the same warning for any site lacking encryption but in an attention grabbing red.
According to NetMarketShare , Google Chrome has a staggering 59.61 percent share of the browser market.
Its nearest challenge internet Explorer has 14.18 percent share of the browser market share.

The Google Chrome security boost follows on from the announcement last month that the browser from January 2018 will not auto play videos which have any sound.

Google said update also means that auto play videos will only be played in Chrome when a user has shown an interest in that type of media.
The changes will be included in Chrome 64 and will benefit desktop and mobile users.

The news was revealed in by Mounir Lamouri a software engineer at Google in Chromium blog post.

He said,  " Users watch and listen to a lot of media and auto play can make it faster and easier to consume on the web.

"However, one of the most frequent user concerns is unexpected media playback which can use data consume power and make unwanted noise while browsing."

To address this, Chrome will be making auto play more consistent with user expectations and will give users more control over audio.

Starting in Chrome 64 auto play will be allowed when either the media won't play sound, or user has indicated an interest in the media.

This will allow auto play to occur when users want media to play and respect users wishes when the don't.

These changes will also unify desktop and mobile web behavior, making web development more predictable across platforms and browsers.
