As of today, it is now possible to download version 103 of the Google Chrome browser on all platforms where it is available.
After a brief period in the beta phase, Google Chrome has reached version 103 in a stable and permanent way. Starting today, all browser users, regardless of their preferred platform, can now download the new version of Chrome and start using all the new features offered by this update.
The update arrives especially rich in novelties in its version for Android, where it has introduced significant changes in terms of page loading or compatibility with new technologies. Let’s review everything it includes.
Improved password manager, access to local sources and more
As we anticipated when releasing the Chrome 103 beta, one of the first changes introduced with this release is support for so-called “HTTP Response Code Early Hints”. aimed at speeding up the loading of web pages by preloading part of the code of the servers where they are hosted, before the user decides to access them.
Additionally, the Web Share API has been awarded .avif format support, so web pages have the ability to work with .avif files without issue when sharing them through Android’s “ ” menu.
Chrome 103 is also able to access font files saved on devices’ local storage. This is especially useful when using image editing websites that allow you to import external sources.
Finally, Chrome 103 has replaced the browser’s built-in password manager with a more comprehensive manager, which can even be added to the home screen of our Android device via a shortcut.
Google Chrome 103 can now be downloaded via Google Play on Android. On all other platforms, the update should start arriving soon.
