Google releases a new Chrome update once every four weeks, starting with Chrome 94. Starting today, Chrome 112 will be available to everyone.
Chrome 112 is scheduled for a full rollout today, following a one-week trial period with a small percentage of users. You may not notice anything different, as Google generally rolls out new features on a different schedule that is not related to the version number. This release is the usual mix of security improvements, bug fixes, and new developer APIs. For example, Chrome 112 introduces support for nesting CSS style rules inside other rules; that’s exciting for web developers, but not so much for others.
However, there is some interesting work behind the scenes. Google is preparing a redesign for Chrome that is expected to happen sometime in 2023, inspired by the Material You design language already used in Android, ChromeOS, and some of Google’s web apps. There’s also a new “Reading Mode” that’s available as an experiment, expected to hit everyone in Chrome 114.
While this update isn’t overly exciting, you should accept it as soon as it appears; every Chrome update has critical security fixes that help protect your devices.
