You can now download Google Chrome 72 for Windows, Linux, and MacOS. The latest version of the browser is not a major update, but it includes many new features for developers, 58 security patches, configuration page changes, and Key improvements for Windows.
Starting with Chrome 72 will block entering the code in Windowsthis means that third-party applications that have users on your computer and can interact with Chrome will no longer be able to enter the code in the browser.
More stable Chrome for Windows
The reason for this is that Google found that about one-third of Chrome users use other applications on their computers that interact with the browser, and these users have 15% more chance to hang.
For this reason, Google had already announced that it would start blocking third-party code entry until 2018, initially displaying only alerts. Now, with Chrome, the browser will simply remove it at all to increase stability.
Another special Windows improvement is that Chrome is now integrating with the WebAuthn API, which allows Activate Windows Hello to use 2-step verification in your browser.
We will no longer be able to set up a Chromecast from Chrome
The bad news is that with this version of Chrome we will have to say goodbye to creating a Chromecast from your desktop. Now, you can only configure your Google device from Google Home iOS or Android. Chrome still supports streaming content, but not device configuration.
Some changes have also been made to the configuration page. We now have an auto-completion section separated from other options that include your passwords, payment methods, and addresses, something pre-mixed at the beginning of the user section.
