Chrome 88 checks for compromised passwords, adds tab search

Google has pushed out v88 of Chrome for desktop, which includes a handful of important changes.

The browser will now check if your saved passwords have been compromised, a feature standard to most dedicated password managers. If it finds a compromised password, it will then provide you with an alert to change it to something more secure.

v88 also adds the tab search feature that was previously found in v87 on Chrome OS. If you have too many open tabs, you can use this to search for any of the open tabs. However, the feature isn’t readily available yet and has to be enabled by toggling a Chrome flag, which can be found at chrome://flags/#enable-tab-search.

The browser also slightly improves support for dark mode on Windows, by turning its scroll bars dark on its settings pages if you have dark mode enabled in Windows. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only place where it does this, and actual web pages, even those that have a dark mode, still use the older scroll bar.

A few things have also been removed. There’s no more support for Adobe Flash, which is to be expected. The browser is also getting rid of FTP support, so you can’t open FTP pages within the browser anymore. Support for macOS Yosemite is also being dropped. Lastly, v88 also drops support for Legacy Browser Support (LBS).
