A new version of Chrome is rolling out now, with support for a new macOS feature.
The latest release is rolling out to Mac, Windows, Linux and other platforms, and sports some changes with hardware keys, syncing and accounts. Additionally, on macOS (Mojave and above), the Dark Mode is now supported.
The dark mode in Chrome now respects the theme you have set in Mojave, so, if you use the Dark Theme, the browser will use that. This is applied to the top chrome, omnibox, hamburger menu and bookmark bar. The dark theme looks identical to Chrome's Incognito Mode, that now has an "Incognito" label and icon to the right of the browser interface. This feature is only live for Mac users currently.
Version 73 also brings additions to the settings page with a new "Sync and Google services" option that makes all data-collection settings become grouped together. If you are looking for these options, they used to be under Privacy but have moved.
Hardware media keys are now supported, meaning you can play and pause content using those keys on your keyboard (e.g the Mac keyboard has them on the Function key row). To skip tracks, developers are required to implement an API.
Finally, a number of accessibility improvements have been made, including better compatibility with screen readers and keyboard accessible tabs.
Google making Chrome on Mac fullscreen more immersive
Since mid-2018, full screen in Google Chrome on Mac has been bugged out and does not display access to your tabs or the top chrome when you move your mouse to the top of the display.
Google did not consider this as a critical bug, despite lots of user complaints. However, this is being fixed now – Google has posted a commit on their browser's source code management. Currently, it will be tested through a flag before being rolled out to the main version of Chrome.
We will issue an article when this focus-breaking bug on Mac Chrome has been fixed.
