Google has released Chrome 75 (75.0.3770.67) for Android. The latest version updates existing features and brings performance improvements, and stability to the browser. It is available on Google Play Store for download.

With the new update, Google has also introduced a new Reader Mode to the Chrome browser. Incidentally the feature is hidden and not active by default. Google has borrowed this feature from Firefox browser.

Those interested in using the feature can turn it on using Chrome’s experimental flags. The feature can be switched on via the following route – chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode section.

After the feature is enabled, users will be required to relaunch the browser to enter the Reader Mode. It is further reported that the mode works with news stories and text-based content as well. One can select ‘Distill Page’ option from the dropdown menu present on the browser’s top-right corner.

Besides, the Google Chrome version 75 fixes the security bug called the ‘evil cursor’ bug. The bug has been reportedly misused by technology scam sites in 2018.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Google has introduced a speedometer in the navigation screen. This feature will enable the users to stay within the speed limits. The app will warn the users if they are exceeding the speed limit using the speedometer which is placed on the lower-left corner of the screen. Google has borrowed this feature from Waze and presently the feature is limited to some select users only. Currently, the Google Maps users in US, Belgium and Brazil can use this new speedometer feature.
