New Chrome 67 for desktop with password-free sign-ins.
Update: New Chrome 67 with a password-free sign-ins feature.
Google had just released Chrome 67 for desktop, as spotted by ZDNet. This newer version of Chrome will allow a password-free sign-ins for most websites, that is you can avoid the stress of a password manager for specific credentials.
Password-free sign-ins is from the Web Authentication standard, which was launched earlier in March by the FIDO Alliance and the W3C. It allows you sign in to virtually any online service through unique credentials that you don’t have to keep memorizing, for instance, fingerprint readers, USB keys like YubiKeys, etc.
The standard is also designed to make it less, likely a bad actor can obtain your most commonly used passwords by making it easier to give each service different login credentials.
Firefox Mozilla was firstly reported to get the standard, while Chrome and Microsoft Edge was further planned to adopt the standard which was later included.
Chrome 67 is further increasing its use of site isolation, helping keep each browser tab separate so that a site can’t easily access data from other open tabs, which is a fix it developed to address Spectre-style attacks.
Chrome will also be of good compatibility with VR through the Generic Sensor API, which is a standard used among fitness trackers and VR headsets, and it should make a great way for more integrations between desktop and gadgets to be yet unleashed.
