Google routinely updates Chrome about every 4 weeks, and with each updates come new bug fixes and occasionally new features. This update boasts 14 security fixes and a few new features. One of the features is called "Prerendering". This is the source of Chrome speeding up its web page loading, as it "Preloads" web pages before you click on them. Thanks to this change, you should be seeing faster loading times for any websites that you will be visiting.
That is not the end of the update however! Google is also tackling pop-up notifications in Chrome 103, using the help of Machine Learning. Sometimes when you visit a website, you are prompted to accept or decline the websites notifications. This can get tiresome when every website prompts you for this, so Google's Machine Learning will automatically block pop-up notifications from websites once it has decided that you will not want to see the pop-ups from those particular websites.
Rounding out the update comes the smallest feature that it has to offer, but it is welcome nonetheless. Chrome will now be able to access your computers local fonts, potentially leading to Progressive Web Apps (PWA's) feeling more like normal every day applications.
Thanks to Google, you are in luck! Chrome updates itself automatically and in the background, so you never need to worry about whether or not you have the latest update. If you would like to check which version of Chrome you are running, simply follow the instructions below:
