On May 25, 2016, Google released a new version of Google Chrome browser. Google Chrome 51 runs on all major operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 7, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Chrome 51 fixed 42 security issues.
What’s new in version 51
The major changes in Chrome 51 include:
- Changed the appearance of incognito mode, all elements of the window in which are now made in dark colors, which makes it impossible to confuse it with the normal mode.
- The load on the system when displaying pages full of ads, social widgets and video inserts has been noticeably reduced. Some popular mobile sites saw a 30% reduction in power consumption. The load is reduced because external elements that are not in scope are now excluded from rendering and animation handlers (requestAnimationFrame). Rendering is performed only when they are in the visible area of the window.
- Credential Management API has been added, giving sites the ability to store and query user credentials. The new API is essentially like an advanced password manager, allowing not only linking a password to fields on forms, but also providing support for advanced authentication schemes and allowing the site to directly query user authentication credentials, thereby making re-entry easier.
- SameSite attribute has been implemented for cookies, allowing you to limit the transfer of cookies to your current domain only.
