Google’s Chrome is the most popular browser for Android smartphones. Although Google regular provides updates for the app, the folks who have installed the beta version get new features before others. And that’s the case with the latest Chrome beta for Android.
Chrome 64 beta, which is also available on the desktop and Mac, brings some new useful features to Android. The browser now includes a much improved and stronger pop-up blocker. The blocker will now stop disguised buttons or menus from opening unwanted tabs on the browser.
Many websites have fake download or play buttons that, when clicked on, open a new tab. This will not happen with the new Chrome update. Also, if the browser detects a malicious redirect, you will now receive a bar pop-up saying that it has been blocked. You can click on it for more details.
Apart from those two useful additions, Chrome 64 beta on Windows 10 gets support for HDR10 content and Split-view multi-tasking on ChromeOS. This means that Chrome on Android should be getting HDR10 support very soon.
The stable version, including these new features, should be available in the coming weeks. For now, if you want to try out the beta, you can download it from the Play Store.
