What’s new chrome 80?
Now let’s talk about the chrome 80, The latest version includes auto upgrading mixed content to HTTPS, SameSite cookie changes, quieter permission UI for notifications, and more developer features.
The latest chrome 80 begin enforcing a new secure-by-default cookie classification system, treating cookies that have no declared SameSite value as
SameSite=Lax cookies. Only cookies set as
SameSite=None; Secure will be available in third-party contexts, provided they are being accessed from secure connections. Chrome 80 thus removes the following backward compatible behaviors:
- Disallow defaulting of SameSite attribute to ‘None’: The SameSite attribute now defaults to Lax meaning your cookies are only available to other sites from top-level navigations. As originally implemented in Chrome, the SameSite attribute defaults to None, which was essentially the Web’s status quo. Cookies have valid cross-site use cases, but if a site owner did not previously want to allow cross-site cookie use there was no way to declare such intent or enforce it.
- Value ‘None’ no longer allowed on insecure contexts: Chrome now requires that when the SameSite attribute is set to None, the Secure attribute must also be present. The Secure attribute requires that the attached cookie can only be transmitted over a secure protocol such as HTTPS.
The latest Chrome 80 auto upgrades mixed audio and video resources in HTTPS sites by rewriting URLs to HTTPS without falling back to HTTP when secure content is not available. If they fail to load over HTTPS, Chrome will block them by default. But here Mixed images are still allowed to load, but they will cause Chrome to mark the page as “Not Secure” in the Omnibox.
Chrome 80 also adds support for using scalable SVG images as favicons which should reduce the number of such resources required for a website or app.
The latest Chrome 80 release fixes 56 security vulnerabilities as well
