After Chrome 87 rolled out to all users, Google is now focusing on the next iteration, v88, which has now hit the Beta channel. As expected, Google Chrome 88 beta has many new features. Some of these features have already been detailed.

Chrome 88 comes with a new flag called #video-tutorials, reports AndroidPolice. As the name implies, the feature essentially brings a card for tutorial videos on the new tab page. The tutorial videos allow users to learn basic things about the browser and how to effectively use them. The videos also have a share icon to help users share videos with their friends.

Screenshot support for incognito mode is also part of the new Chrome 88. According to the report, #incognito-screenshot flag in the beta allows users to take screenshots in the incognito mode on the browser. You will have to enable this feature.

The report also reveals a big list of changes that are part of the new update.

“Google's Legacy Browser Support extension, which allowed IT managers to set rules for opening other browsers automatically when certain pages are loaded, is no longer supported as of Chrome 88. Most of the extension's functionality is now built into Chrome directly,” says the report.

Some of the other changes are darker scrollbars and form elements once the dark mode is enabled. A new #permission-predictions flag helps switch to a less-intrusive interface for page permissions.
