New Year, new version of google chrome. Fulfilling its planning, Google has released this week the Google Chrome version 97 for all major platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, and of course Android.

Chrome’s first major update in 2022 is now downloadable
Chrome 97 does not introduce too many changes that will change the way users use the browser. Instead it focuses on improve the experience through improvements important, such as the possibility of delete all stored data from a website through the browser settings.
In previous versions, Chrome only allowed to delete data of different type one by one, without the option to erase all data, cookies and other information from a website.
Continuing with the desktop version of Chrome, the new version features a improved support for international keyboards when using the browser. In this way, developers can use a new API that allows the website to determine what type of keyboard is being used, to avoid incorrectly mapped keys.
Another important change for developers is the possibility of use CSS to determine if the website supports HDR content.
If you are one of those who use progressive web apps installed on your computer, you will soon see how these apps begin to be able to take advantage of the top app bar, including menus or search bars.
The mobile version of Chrome has also received improvements, the most important being the possibility of set a specific zoom level for each website, making Chrome remember it every time we return to that page. To use this function, it is necessary to activate the experimental setting or flag chrome: flags # enable-accessibility-page-zoom.
Finally, Google is preparing for the jump to chrome 100 which should arrive in a couple of months. Starting with this version, Chrome has added an option that reports a three-digit version when a website requests the version of the browser that is being used.
All the news of Chrome arrive from today to the browser on its different platforms. On desktop versions, Chrome 97 should install automatically coming soon. However, there is always the possibility of downloading the latest version of Chrome manually
