Google adds HDR to Chrome 64 and improves the pop-up blocker
The latest version of the popular browser Google Chrome that currently dominates the market has added, among other innovations, support for HDR content.
This means that if we have a monitor or television on our PC compatible with this technology, we will be able to see websites that integrate content in HDR without the need for any player or external program when installing Chrome in version 64. Naturally, a graphics card is also needed. , whether dedicated or integrated, that supports HDR and that has a driver version that enforces this support
Other new features included in Chrome 64 are the silencing of entire websites that include videos with automatic playback (who has not ever been annoyed by a website like cnet where you enter and a video with sound starts playing?) or improvements aimed at mitigating the scope of the Meltdown and Specter vulnerabilities.
Chrome 64 aims to do away with those hidden or transparent buttons that open a new window
And one feature that will really be appreciated is the new popup limitation, placing special emphasis on those websites that integrate transparent or hidden buttons to deceive the user and that, when they are pressed, another unrelated website automatically opens. This practice, used by sites of dubious quality or practices, is used from advertising purposes to more dishonest purposes such as phishing or deceiving the user.
