Google has just updated its Chrome web browser.

How-To Geek’s Joe Fedewa has published an article highlighting the key features of Chrome 86.

He says, “Chrome 86 is another solid upgrade from Google. Besides the usual under-the-hood improvements, Google Chrome 86 helps you quickly change vulnerable passwords and protects you from websites wasting your CPU resources (and battery power) in the background.

Google released Chrome 86 on October 6, 2020. Chrome will automatically install the update or ask you to install it. If you don’t want to wait, you can check for and install the update by clicking Menu > Help > About Google Chrome.

Google Chrome can check whether your passwords are compromised and warn you about it. Starting with Chrome 86, there’s now a quick “Change Password” button in Chrome’s password manager that will help you changed those leaked passwords. It will take you directly to the website’s password reset page, taking a lot of legwork out of the process”.
