Not so long ago, we covered a new feature or Chrome and Edge - Sharing hub. It is a nifty feature that adds the ability to quickly copy the link, cast it, or generate a QR code. Google expanded this functionality with links to popular social networks and emails.
Google says the idea of hiding URL portions and query parameters in the Chrome address bar was a bad idea. The company removed the code for this feature from the Chrome code base. As you maybe remember, last year, Google experimented with the URL format displayed in Chrome, with the result that only part of the domain was visible, and the full URL was only visible after clicking on the address bar.
The developers of modern mainstream browsers constantly work to improve the security of their products. With every release, they add new protection capabilities to make you safer on the Internet.

Not so long ago, Microsoft Edge Canary for Android received a nifty built-in utility for web page screenshots. At the time of writing, that tool could not offer much.

Here's how to disable Tab Grouping in Chrome 91 on Android if you are not happy with this feature and want to open links in new tabs.

Here's how you can Disable FLoC in Google Chrome. FLoC is a new initiative from Google to replace traditional cookies with less privacy-invasive technologies that at the same time allow advertisers to provide relevant ads. In a nutshell, instead of tracking individual users, FLoC generates groups of people with common interests. On paper, the idea sounds good, but in reality, FLoC has already faced strong criticism and opposition from many different companies and developers. Brave, Vivaldi, and Firefox developers recently announced their decision not to adopt FLoC due to privacy concerns.
Google Chrome 91 is out, bringing a number of new features to the stable branch of the browser. Perhaps its most notable change is the ability to copy a file and paste it into a web page. Also, it fixes 32 security vulnerabilities.
