Chrome 90 Features
With Chrome 90, Google is introducing a new window management feature. This will make it easier for users to identify multiple browser windows. As the name suggests, Chrome 90 will remember the names for windows and they’ll be restored the next time you open the browser.
To take advantage of this feature, Open the Chrome menu by tapping the three dots at the top right corner -> Click on more tools and tap on the name Window option. Or else, you can simply right-click on the browser’s window.
- Chrome will now block connections to HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP servers on port 554 to mitigate NAT Slipstream 2.0 attack.
