Chrome already has Google's Safe Browsing technology to warn users against visiting phishing and malware sites, so there doesn't seem to be much reason for Microsoft to release a Chrome add-on that does the same thing.

Autoplay will only be allowed when the media itself doesn't include sound, or when the user has indicated that they are interested in the media. That means you are still likely to encounter autoplaying videos, but should not hear unexpected audio blaring from your speakers. Users can just tap the new Search icon in Settings followed by Passwords. While he couldn't verify that it actually made his Web browsing safer, he noted that the extension runs in tandem with Google's built-in security features. You can check out your MEI at the chrome://media-engagement internal page.

Chrome 66 also comes with Site Isolation-another mitigation technique for the Spectre vulnerability-along with numerous fixes for several other security issues, the details of which you can see here. The mute feature sets by default and you would no longer hear such ads.

While Google will not entirely block videos in Chrome that are created to autoplay, users will have to trigger them to play manually.

Other change that is debuting on Chrome is the new "Export Password Option".

The Export Passwords exists for Android and iOS as well. This is thanks to the company's rigorous updates, keeping the platform on top of the latest attacks. It recently launched a built-in ad blocker for Chrome created to filter intrusive ads like pop-up ads, countdown ads that appear before a page loads, and large sticky ads. The updated browser is now tested and will be released in the next few weeks.

To update to the Google Chrome 66, select About Chrome from the Chrome menu bar. In fact, the tech firm plans to come up with a new browser every six weeks or so.
