Chrome 65 Release Date and Features

Chrome 65 is available to download on the canary channel.

Although little is known for what Chrome 65 is set to bring to the browser, it is already available for download on the canary channel here. As of current, the features Chrome 65 is set to bring or improve upon are as follows:

 

Abusive Behaviour Blocking

Websites automatically redirecting users to random pages upon clicking a link are set to get heavily countered by Chrome on or before the release of Chrome 65. A crackdown on websites containing videos or pictures that - upon clicking - redirect users to adverts or other web addresses is to start with the release of Chrome 64 and should be further locked down by the time Chrome 65 hits the stable channel. The way Google intends to do this is by "locking down" the main tab to prevent the user from being redirected. This, in combination with an abusive behaviour reporter system, should hopefully put an end to redirecting links.

 

Malicious Adware Blocking

An advancement on the already successful ad-blocker is set to happen for Chrome 65, with an extra push toward pop-up adware containing links or downloads that are host to malware or malicious content.
