Google has started rolling out the latest stable release of Google Chrome, i.e., Chrome 67. It’s intended for the users of Windows, macOS, and Linux who will receive it in the next few days.
Generic Sensors API is one of the salient features of the latest Chrome release. The API helps websites and web apps take advantage of the data collected by different sensors on the device. Given that the wave of Progressive Web Apps has already started, the API would enable PWAs to provide a more native experience to the users of 2-in-1 devices, if not full-fledged PCs.
By adding support for the WebXR Device API, Chrome 67 is now capable of providing a better AR and VR experience for mobile devices and desktops. WebXR succeeds WebVR, and the goal is to bring all the AR-enabled mobile devices and VR-enabled headsets like Daydream, Gear VR, Oculus Rift, etc. under a single roof, unifying the experience.
Among improvements and 34 security fixes, Chrome 67 builds more on Site Isolation which is now available to more users. The feature was designed to lessen, if not eliminate, the threat from the Spectre flaws discovered earlier this year.
As always, if you’re using Chrome, there is nothing to do to get the update installed on your system. In case, you’re switching over to Chrome from some other browser, download the updated browser using this link.
