Release Chrome 111

Google has released a stable channel update to its popular web browser, Chrome 111. In addition, the free, open-source project Chromium, which serves as the basis for Chrome, also received a stable release on the same day.

The Chrome 111 update comes with several changes to the user interface, including new dialogue boxes and information about the capabilities of Privacy Sandbox. This feature allows users to determine categories of interests that can be used for personalized advertising without tracking individual users or their groups. The new dialogue box lets users configure information transmitted by advertising networks.

Another new dialogue box informs users about the possibility of synchronizing data between browsers, including settings, stories, bookmarks, and autofill databases.

Furthermore, on Linux and Android platforms, the update made changes to operations for determining names in the DNS by moving them from an isolated network process into a browser process. This is to avoid disruptions due to Sandbox restorations used for other network services.

Lastly, users can now automatically enter Microsoft’s identification services using their Microsoft Windows account information with the update.

The next version of Chrome, version 112, is scheduled to be released on April 4. Users who need more time to update can use the Extended Stable branch, which is separately supported and comes with eight weeks of additional support.

For more information about the changes in Chrome 111, users can visit the Chrome and Chromium developer blogs.
