    The basic requirements, as noted, are that you must be on Chrome Stable, Beta, Dev, or Canary with a version number higher than 77. Next, you have to type "chrome://flags" in the address bar, search for "dark" and enable any of the three options according to your preferences.

    The first one - "Force Dark Mode for Web Contents", does exactly what it says and you are greeted with a handful of modes to choose from. If you are a fan of black, then I suggest you go for "Enabled with simple HSL-based inversion", otherwise you can experiment and pick up the type of inversion that best suits you.

    The second one - "Android Chrome UI dark mode" - when turned on, lets you use the built-in dark mode for the user interface explicitly.

    Google Chrome Browser's version 72 stable and version 73 beta for Android got released recently. The stable build and the beta one each bring something new to the table, so without further ado, let's proceed with our feature breakdown all courtesy of XDA Developers, Android Police and 9to5Google.

    Trusted Web Activities

    The stable channel for Chrome got updated to version 72 and it finally does allow app developers to publish their Progressive Web Apps on the Google Play Store. All of this is thanks to Google announcing their 'Trusted Web Activities' software. TWAs differ from normal websites and Chrome Custom Tabs by the simple fact that they run in full-screen and do not have a browser UI.

    The Chrome browser, entirely built by Google, is maybe one of the fastest, if not the fastest web browser as of today, available on many mobile and desktop platforms. With that said, this year Google is working even harder to improve the user experience that their product offers, cut down on waiting times, and a lot more.

    Faster and smoother operations

    As we mention, speed in web browsing is one of the key factors when choosing a web browser. Based on data that has been shared on the Chromium Blog, which we will also link below, sites nowadays are using on an average eight times more JavaScript code in comparison to 2011. Imagine trying to run the same large code on an underpowered device, such as a smartphone.

    Google Chrome got some very handy design improvements this year and now it is time for a new feature, which benefits only Indian users for the time being. What I mean by this is that the new 'Explore' tab is a content discovery page, where it suggests the user websites and right now they are all India-specific. Of course, this may be subject to change, knowing Google's track record. Some theories say that 'Explore' might become official with suggestions, based on the user's browser usage patterns and needs. Also, this may get removed too, because it is indeed totally experimental.

There is a key icon shown above the keyboard when you type. The settings also got a revamp. Now, the font is smaller and there are no dividers to be seen.

    This week we got Chrome Beta v69 for Android coming with some interface updates and more. There are a couple of notable features we will briefly go through:

    Notch support

    2018 is the year of notched phones. We saw many "top-notch" devices from manufacturers like Huawei, LG and OnePlus coming with this popular design choice and the newly released Android Pie update also added proper support for it. Last year, after the iPhone X launch, Apple introduced some CSS attributes for web developers to have greater control over the notch area, now Google also adds support for the same CSS attributes.
