Google is launching a few updates to Chrome on desktop this week to make your browsing experience safer and give you more control over your browser’s memory usage.
Starting with version 120, Chrome’s Safety Check on desktop will now run in the background and send out proactive alerts when it detects if a password in Chrome has been compromised or when an extension you’ve installed is malware. It’ll also remind you to update Chrome.
Chrome’s Safety Check will now automatically revoke permission you may have given to a site a long time ago but haven’t used for a while. It’ll ask if you want to disable notifications from a site you don’t engage with much.
Chrome’s Memory Saver mode has been updated to provide more information when you hover over a tab and an easier setting to tell Chrome that certain sites should not go to sleep.
Another new feature is the ability to save tab groups and sync them with other desktop devices.
