Google Chrome : Enable What’s New Page
- Open the Chrome browser and go to the hidden settings page
- Now type whats-new into the search box.
- As a result, you will see two settings partially highlighted with a yellow marker “Show Chrome What’s New page” and “Show ‘New’ badge on ‘What’s New’ menu item”.
- Set both flags to Enabled, restart your browser
- Now, go to
chrome://whats-new. Alternatively, you can open the main menu (Alt + F) and select the Help → What’s New option.
On the page you open, you will find a list of changes and new features added to the browser.
Unfortunately, only the main changes will be shown. If you need more details, you still have to go with the official changelogs available on the developers’ web site.
As of now, the latest version of Chrome Canary shows the tab search, new profile switcher, and a tip on how to customize Chrome using themes and colors on the “What’s New” page. It is available in Chrome Canary on Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, and Linux. Microsoft Edge, on the other hand, does yet not offer the same page with new features.
