What's New in Chrome 100?

Chrome 100.0.4896.60 contains a number of fixes and improvements, including a subtle, and slightly refreshed logo. more tools for web applications, removal of 'lite' mode on mobile, preparation of closing user agent strings, improvements in closing tabs, and other minor changes, along with the usual bug fixes and the inclusion of the latest security updates.

  1. Subtle and slightly refreshed logo.
  2. Reduced User-Agent string.
  3. Multi-screen window placement API.
  4. Mute Tabs.
  5. Data Saving

#1) New Refreshed Logo

In Chrome 100 update, the biggest change is the arrival of a refreshed logo. The new design removes some of the shadowing detail from the 2014-era logo, which makes for a flattering look that's more in line with the app icons for Google's other services.

#2) Reduced User-Agent string

User-agent strings tell websites what kind of device and operating system we're using. While that information can be useful, it is also personal and can be used to create a profile about the user. Google Chrome 100 will be the last version to support "unreduced" user-agent strings. Instead, there will be strings of user agents with reduced information to sites and a new API that will cause fewer incompatibilities with websites.

#3) Multi-screen window placement API

Google has released a new API that will help web applications detect when we use multiple windows on different screens on the desktop. Among the use cases, Google cites a slideshow that could be displayed on one screen while speaker notes are displayed on another screen, a financial app, a medical imaging app, creativity apps, and others. Native apps have been able to do all of this for a long time, but web apps have struggled, and now comes an improvement.

#4) Mute Tabs

Google removed years ago the ability to mute a tab simply by clicking the speaker icon. It's a feature that Chrome released and today it's a feature that other browsers have, including Microsoft Edge. Fortunately, Google is bringing it back and will add it by default in future updates.

#5) Data Saving

Chrome for Android and iOS has long included a "Lite mode" to save data. Google will start shutting down the servers responsible for that data compression and the feature will be removed. Google says that it has already included other improvements to minimize data usage and valued the decrease in the cost of mobile data in many countries.

Other Features

Other new features include a confirmation popup to close all tabs at once in Chrome for Android and an API to manage digital products and in-app purchases from web apps. The release includes 28 security fixes of all kinds including the emergency patch that was released last week (also for Edge) to address a high severity 0-Day vulnerability. There are also quite a few improvements under the hood, which developers will be able to use.
