After releasing the version 100 of their browser, Google has initiated the release of Google Chrome Beta 101 for beta testers.

Minor news, we said. Among these, the most evident in Google Chrome Beta 101 is a new test regarding the password manager built into the browser (on the desktop version), which allows you to add notes to saved passwords.
To enable the new functionality of the integrated password manager, simply enable the flag “chrome: // flags / # password-notes”And restart the browser: at that point, the user can enrich the saved passwords with information, by adding further details (such as the answers to the security questions or the date of the last password change).
The rest of the news are under the hood. These include an option that allows websites to forget previously connected USB devices and an option, related to windows, to optimize loading algorithms.
With Google Chrome Beta 101 Developers will also be able to take advantage of the new “Priority Hints” that allow them to discover how the browser manages the priority of assigning resources to various websites.
