Following the Mac, Windows, and Linux update this afternoon, Chrome 75 is now rolling out to Android. The user-facing focus of this release is on passwords, while developers can take advantage of several new features to improve the browsing experience.
This version of Chrome is bringing many password-related features already found on desktop to mobile. When entering a password, a gray row appears just above your keyboard with a key logo at the left.
Tapping an account field will show saved passwords for a site, with the resulting list that replaces your keyboard better than the disruptive autofill popup. A shortcut to “Manage passwords” at the bottom opens the full settings page.
Meanwhile, when generating a new account or changing an existing one, this bar adds a “Suggest strong password” button to create and save a unique passphrase.
To improve browsing with gestures, Chrome 75 adds support for Scroll Snap Stop.
It allows web developers to “designate a snap position such that it traps the inertial scrolling operations preventing the scroll from skipping it.” For example, when swiping through a horizontal image gallery, a broad gesture will not automatically take you to the last item in the carousel. Rather, each swipe takes you to the next picture.
