Google updates Chrome to version 60 and brings MacBook Pro Touch Bar support

When we covered this news at the end of February, still present only on the Canary channel (“pr-beta”) of Chrome, the forecast was that it would arrive for everyone in April. It took longer, but here it is.

Google has just officially launched version 60 (!) Of its browser, and the main novelty for recent MacBook Pro owners is the promised and awaited Touch Bar support.

Here it is, in full:

Touch Bar in Google Chrome

Obviously, it somewhat resembles that of Safari with cones to go back and forth, update, search or type URLs, add the active site to your favorites and open a new tab.

The bad news is that, at least here for me, the “Search or type URL” field is flashing /flickering whenever I change tabs or while a website is still loading. so annoying that, for now, I customized the bar (from the menu To view) and removed that field from there.

Chrome 60 also comes with numerous security fixes, of course, as well as great news for anyone working with web development. It is immediately available for download, in versions for macOS, Windows and Linux.
