Chrome 76's other noteworthy update is a security patch for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS that kills off a "loophole" that permitted tracking through Incognito Mode.

Google will also be changing the way incognito mode works such that sites would no longer be able to detect users who are in private mode. Google has just launched Chrome 76 into Beta with the new update not only making sure that individual Flash items blocked by default, but now the entire browser feature is off by default as well.

Unlike previous editions where you could set a preference for sites which contain trusted Flash content, from now on, you'll need to manually turn on the content for each and every page you visit, every time.

By the looks of things, the theme creator will come with a custom color picker, and users will be able to pick their own color settings for the browser. It is worth noting here that Adobe has already announced plans to shut down Flash by 2020. The tech giant has been trying to eradicate Flash for years, first by actively pausing Flash Player content on web pages in 2015. It's no longer possible for websites to detect you're browsing privately, or to read and write cookies to your devices. The latest version of the most used internet browser in the world right now is available in the stable channel, and it has a couple of significant changes to tell you about.
