What's new in Google Chrome 110

  • Chrome 110 supports NVIDIA's RTX Super Resolution technology. It can  upscale low resolution videos to 4K. It is enabled by default, but only works with the latest NVIDIA driver, and requires a RTX-30* or RTX-40* card. Also, the appropriate option can be enabled or disabled in the NVIDIA Control Panel.
  • Includes the optional ability to use biometric authentication before auto filling saved passwords.
  • If there is a network error, a new page will appear in standalone web apps that describes the issue. It only appears if the app doesn't support offline mode.
  • Headless mode has received an update that brings up with it advanced features like support for Group Policies.
  • When Safe Browsing > Enhanced protection is enabled, Chrome now collects telemetry about requested Cookies by add-ons. Google will use it to detect add-ons that steal users' data and track their activity.
  • In addition, Chrome on Android now automatically updates the white list for the "Enhanced Safe Browsing" and "Make Browsing Better" modes using the inbox update delivery system. This will allow receiving updates for the white list much faster.
  • Changing a compromised password is now more convenient. The browser also includes a bigger database for various sites with direct links to the password change form.
  • Chrome is now at the 6th stage of trimming information in the User-Agent HTTP string and navigator.userAgent, navigator.appVersion and navigator.platform  JS properties. In version 110 on Android, the User-Agent line looks like "Android 9; S". Earlier, it was something like Android 9; SM-A205U.
  • The "chrome://settings/language" page offers advanced translation settings that allow you to select the current target language, languages ​​that do not need to be translated, and languages ​​that should always be translated.
  • A new ":picture-in-picture" pseudo-class in CSS allows changing the appearance of interface elements for viewing video in picture-in- picture mode .

Finally, Chrome 110 fixes 15 security issues in the desktop and mobile apps. Some of them are mentioned on the official blog. Internally discovered vulnerabilities aren't included in the change log.
