The Chrome browser has been updated to version 36.0.1985.122 with a handful of notable features, plus a swath of 26 security fixes. Here's what's new.

  • Rich Notifications Improvements
  • An Updated Incognito / Guest NTP design
  • The addition of a Browser crash recovery bubble
  • Chrome App Launcher for Linux

Are you guys finding Chrome notifications are any better after the update? Any of the other improvements leaping out?

Chrome for desktop updated with rich notification improvements


I would hope more interaction. I have a twitter notifier that was dumbed down when rich notifications were released. Used to be able to retweet, and favorite in the old notification system.

Me neither, but my reason for commenting is the time stamp on this post was "moments from now"... Have to ask... What's it like in the future?

Did they ever fix the issue where Chrome looks like crap on a high resolution device running Windows 8.1? The only solution makes the Chrome UI really tiny. Firefox looks fine on 8.1, I don't understand why Chrome can't.

I can't believe that Chrome still doesn't have this. Got the Surface Pro 3 and chrome looks horrible on it.

Linux users looking for the launcher? You still need to go into chrome://flags and enable it. After that and restart of Chrome it shows up in your apps.
