On September 4, An update for Google’s Chrome browser was released, called version 69.  In this version of the browser, Google Chrome’s “omnibox” the bar where you type search queries and URLs into, can show you search results answers as you type.  Although this is similar to how Google search works, but it happens directly in the Chrome browser.

In the new version 69, Google said that the feature was in beta in 2014 and more widely available in Chrome version 45 back in 2015.  Now this is the default behavior for the Omnibox.

Google said with Chrome 69, the Omnibox “will now show you answers directly in the address bar without having to open a new tab — from rich results on public figures or sporting events, to instant answers like the local weather via weather.com or a translation of a foreign word.”

Not only is there the Omnibox, Google has even changed how it labels HTTPS URLs.  In Chrome 68, HTTPS URLs were colored green.  With Chrome 69, the URLs are now gray with a small lock next to them.  At some point in the future, Google is going to remove the lock system from HTTPS URLs and show only HTTP URLS as being “not secure.”

You can read more about the number of updates for Chrome 69 on the Google blog.
