    A new look of Chrome, made by the Google Chrome Team. This new web browser update features a number of fixes and improvements for the Chrome Browser.

    :arrow: Source

    This new update is actually good; fixed my problem where I keep logging out of GBAtemp. One thing I hate about it is now instead of pressing backspace to go to the previous page; it's now the ALT + backspace key :(

    Finally a version number incremental WITH actual changes instead of a version number bump with 1 lousy bugfix.

    Yea, because while I'm eating and using my computer; it was so much easier. Now I have to instead drag my mouse because I don't wanna use my two hands lol. Doesn't work on the other ALT key for some odd reason (near the enter key)

    pretty sure you've got spam like advertisings on your chrome, and also some malware like bots that reads part of your history to detect your possible interests and maybe alter your search results. everyone has some as far as i've seen.
    most people are just not aware since thier anti malware doesn't detect it.
    most malware is harmless at itself, though it can be used to add a virus to your computer.

    It's not malware if it's not doing anything malicious.

    Also, I think you mean cookies? That's how search engine results are changed. I've never gotten malware myself though Chrome.

    Pressing backspace and getting sent back to the previous page is bullshit so thank the Lord

    Meanwhile I'll stay with good'ol Chrome 46 WITHOUT THAT MOTHERF*CKING USER CHANGER THAT ONLY TAKES SPACE FOR MY TABS.
    BTW, the backspace back has been there on every web browser since as long as I can remember and personally use it all the time, so that's another reason to stay where am I.

    AFAIK there's a flag you can set to have the usual Backspace behaviour in Chrome 51 as well.

    I use Firefox and Safari.
    I've tried Chrome multiple times and never got on with it.
