 What's new in Chrome 88

Web App
Web App Chrome

Google has released the 88th version of the Chrome browser. Here are the main innovations:

Dark Theme Improvements

The page scroll bars of the browser's internal pages are now dark in color: settings, history, etc.

End of FTP

The browser no longer supports ftp:// links, as the protocol does not have encryption, unlike FTPS.

Mac OS X Yosemite

Google is officially ending support for Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite in Chrome 88. Apple itself has not supported Yosemite since 2017.

Less intrusive notifications

Chrome 88 is experimenting with a less intrusive way to request permissions.

Instead of a pop-up window covering the website content, a new bar appears to the left of the address bar.
