You can now download Google Chrome 72 for Windows, Linux and MacOS. The latest version of the browser is not a major update, but includes many new features for developers, 58 security patches, changes to the Configuration Page and Great improvements in the Windows version.
Starting with Chrome 72 will block code injection in Windows, this means that third-party applications that have installed users on your computer and who can communicate with Chrome will no longer be able to inject the code into the browser.
More stable Chrome in Windows
The reason for this is that Google has found that about one-third of Chrome users in Windows use other applications on their computers that communicate with the browser and these users 15% more likely to hang.
Therefore, Google has already announced that it will begin blocking the embedding of third-party codes by 2018, initially only showing warnings. Now with Chrome 72 the browser will simply prevent it from fully boosting its stability.
Another specific improvement in Windows is that Chrome now integrates with the WebAuthn API, which allows activate Windows Hello to use verification in two steps in the browser.
We will no longer be able to place a Chromecast from Chrome
The bad news is that with this version of Chrome we will have to say goodbye to the ability to place Chromecast from the desktop. Now you can only configure your Google device from the Google Home app for iOS or Android. Chrome still supports the streaming content, but not the configuration of the device as such.
The Page Configuration also got some changes. We now have part for automatic completion separated from other options that include your passwords, payment methods and addresses, something that was previously mixed at the beginning of the user part.
