Google Releases Chrome with Improved Privacy Controls
ONLINE PRIVACYNovember 8, 2012
Google has updated its browser to Chrome 23, which includes easier access to privacy controls such as the ability to delete cookies and block sites from tracking users online, reports Webmonkey. “The new drop-down menu also has options to control a website’s permissions for features like geolocation, pop-ups, plugins, fullscreen mode, camera/microphone access and more,” the report states. While these features have been available on past versions of Chrome, the interface has been moved from three levels deep to a drop-down menu next to the URL. Chrome is the last browser to provide support for Do Not Track, and like many others, it is activated on an opt-in basis, the report states.
