Google announced the launch of a new Chrome version in the coming week which will bring along improved support for the dark mode. Moreover, the company also disables the support for the File Transport Report (FTP) and Adobe Flash. The improvements in the dark mode will be on both the operating systems, i.e., Windows and Chrome. However, for the Chrome OS, the refinements are made to light and dark mode both as well as updated themes and better settings options.
According to the reports, Chrome 88 will also bring improved dark mode for Windows 10 where scroll bars will now appear dark in the dark mode. The dark scroll is however restricted to settings, history, new tab pages and bookmark of the new Chrome 88 currently.
In addition, the giant search engine company also discontinued older technology, for example, the FTP is removed in Chrome 88 version, a support that was used by billions of users for years to send files from one web to another.
While that was not all enough, Google will also eliminate Adobe Flash entirely from the latest version. Adobe Flash was blocked and disabled in the past years before the company planned to remove it entirely. After the permanent removal of Flash from Chrome browser, an era will end. The company officially announced the discontinuation of support to Adobe Flash, back on December 31st 2020.
Lastly, Google will add new features to the browser where tab search and less intrusive permission prompts will be hidden in the Chrome 88. In order to enable the new tab search, users will have to enter chrome://flags/#enable-tab-search so that the new tab drop-down arrow appears in the Chrome tab UI. The smaller permission requests can be enabled by using chrome://flags/#permission-chip.
