Chrome 64 for Android released in the Google Play Store, here's what's new
It's been more than a month since Google released the last stable version of Chrome for Android, which brought the enhancements of some existent features. Today, Google is rolling out Chrome 64, which further adds improvements to the mobile browser

There's one important thing that Chrome 64 does better than any of the previous versions of the browser: it prevents sites heavy on ads from opening new windows or tabs without the user's permission.

Also, the updated browser includes a new setting that allows users to mute the sound of an entire a website. You can access it from the Settings / Site settings menu, but you'll have to do that for each website that you want to mute.

For those less used to Chrome, Google added a guide that makes it easier for them to understand the layout of the interface since many of the browser's features have been relocated. Keep in mind that the new version of Chrome is being rolled out in stages, so it may take up to a few weeks to appear in Google Play Store for everyone.

I've just gotten rid of Chrome from my handset (with root). Not turning back to it anytime soon.

I only use Chrome for when I have issues with the other browsers I use, though it's only with specific instances and rare. Otherwise I'll use Brave or Opera.

Embedded videos get stuck after a few secs playing, had to revert back to v63, the last one in which embed vids are playing normally.
