Chrome 83 Released With Enhanced Privacy Controls, Tab Groups Feature

Google has released today version 83 of its Chrome web browser, one of the most feature-packed Chrome updates released since the browser’s initial launch back in 2009. From a report:

Today’s v83 release includes a slew of new features. These include enhanced privacy controls, new settings for managing cookie files, a new Safety Check option, support for tab groups, new graphics for web form elements, a new API for detecting barcodes, and a new anti-XSS security feature, among many many others. The reason why Chrome 83 includes so many features is because Google canceled the Chrome 82 release due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As a result, some of the Chrome 82 features were pushed into Chrome 83, while others were rescheduled for later this year.
