Google will begin to make Chrome 77 browser update available to Windows, Mac, Android & iOS this week. While there are many visual changes to Chrome this time, Google is introducing a new send web page to devices feature. You can right-click on a link and a new context menu will appear that simply lets you send links to other devices where you use Chrome.

While Chrome has supported the ability to browse your open and recent tabs across multiple devices for a while now, this send to device feature just makes things a little quicker. What too you so long Google? If you’re moving from browsing on a PC or laptop to a phone or vice versa you’re life just got way easier.

The other main change you’ll notice in Chrome 77 is that a new animation shows a site favicon loading in new tabs, starting in a “loading” circle before expanding once it’s fully loaded. It’s a nice visual indicator making it easier to spot when a tab is still loading. It’s great to see these little additions, as it’s these that really improve the user experience.

Tell us what you think and if you haven’t updated chrome on your devices yet, you can get the latest Chrome 77 update by navigating to help > about Google Chrome in the browser to check for updates.
