Google Chrome is the world’s most popular web browsers that have lots of hidden features you may not know about. In the latest version, Google Chrome has introduced a new feature that supports autocomplete functionality, called Omnibox Rich Autocompletion. The address bar autocompletion suggestions improve the user experience and make the browser’s address bar even more helpful.
This feature is disabled by default but if you’re interested, you can manually activate it using a hidden option, flag. This feature works in Windows, macOS, and, Linux. But it is still unclear whether the company will provide the same feature to mobile users as well.
