Fortunately, from the configuration options of the browser application itself, it is possible to recover these saved passwords. We can even delete them if we need them. To do this, the first thing to do is to open the Google Chrome app on our smartphone and then click the button. menu access Configuration.
Once there, we select the option Passwords and it will automatically show us a screen where we will see theList of sites for which we have saved the password of access. If we approach one of them, we will see the site name, the user and the password field which, for security reasons, will be masked with a few points.
Next to the password will appear a icon with an eye or option View, depending on the system of our phone, which allows us to see the password saved for this site. Of course, before that, we will have to indicate the security or lock key of our phone or put our finger on the fingerprint reader of the phone to display the password.
In case we want to remove our Google password and recover all the saved passwords in Chrome on our mobile, from the option Settings> Passwords, we also have the opportunity to export all passwords. To do this, simply press the menu button and choose the Export Passwords option. Again, we need to indicate the mobile code or use the fingerprint to create the file with all the sites and passwords saved in the browser.
We must pay attention to the location where we save this file because anyone opening it will have access to all of our usernames and passwords that we have stored in Chrome.

Although Microsoft stopped developing Edge with EdgeHTML and began using Chromium as an engine, Microsoft's browser had some advantages over Chrome, including lower power consumption when viewing videos in the browser. Navigator. Thanks to this, the battery lasted several hours to do the same taskas the company showed in a video This brought a lot of controversy.
This difference seems to be due to the so-calledstreaming media caching", Or the caching of streaming media content, which keeps the storage unit active during the process of acquiring and playing back a streaming video, even if it's n & rsquo; It is necessary to access it only for a few seconds to store the contents. As a result, some low power modes are not enabled in the operating system.
For example, by using a chrome flag, this option could be disabled to minimize streaming content on the disk as much as possible, reducing battery consumption through caching that has not been done. no need to happen.
Disabling the function also has another disadvantage. Although the implementation of Media Source in the browser allows you to store some of the cache in the memory of content that we have already read, going back several minutes may require the video to download again this piece on the Internet, This increases data consumption and can be dangerous if you use a connection with a limited number of gigabytes. The battery saving is 62 mW for the main battery rail, in addition to reduce the write activity of 309 KB / s, which will help increase the life of your SSD.
To take advantage of this new battery saving feature, we need to install the latest version of Chrome Canary (with 78.0.3887.0, it already works). Once we have it, we go to the address chrome: // flags / # turn-off-streaming-media-cachingand we give to activated. This will no longer stop writing content unnecessarily to the disc. It does not make sense to do it on a desktop, but on a laptop, we will get some major improvements. As in Chrome Canary, the feature can be enabled in Edge Canary.

However, it can not be said that it works as well as many would like, so it is sometimes better to take advantage of third-party solutions in these leaders to avoid problems and data loss. That is why one of the most effective proposals of this type is a extension that we can use both in the mentioned Firefox as in Google Chromewe mean Session Manager tab.
It's a complement that will help us save the tabs and windows sessions with the browser and do not lose anything because of unexpected problems. Specifically, we are talking about a small program added to these browsers that automatically saves windows and tabs so we can not lose them. Once installed, the add-on adds a new icon to the toolbar which gives us a context menu with all the recent browsing sessions you have saved.
Thus, each session that the extension saves alone adds details such as last name eyelashes active, the total number of tabs, or the date and time of saving the session. At the same time, we will have the option to open this session that has been stored or delete it. Therefore, if the equipment stops suddenly or if Navigator it is closed or locked without waiting, when you click open in the extension we are talking about, a new window opens and the full list of registered tabs is loaded.
Of course, we have the ability to customize its behavior from the configuration section, which will allow us to change the behavior of the open button. At the same time, we can save the the contents of the private windows, set the time interval for automatic recording, the number of sessions to store simultaneously, and so on.
Finally, we will say that we have the opportunity to import sessions spent to be stored here, which will be very useful if we work with this extension on several computers, as well as export them.
Something I would already be working on because it was detected how, in a code change request in Chromium Gerrit, references to the paper sharing feature are included and in addition two new flags are specified that will be coming soon in the browser from Google and who They are directly related to this function.
These flags are Enable the receiving device to manage the shared clipboard feature and Enable shared clipboard feature signals to processIn other words, these are the ones that would allow the options to receive content copied to the clipboard through a notification and one that would show a list of devices with which we can share the clipboard.
This suggests that the function would not be automatic, unlike other items already synced via Chrome on other devices, but that it will be the user himself who will have to send the contents of the clipboard to the device that he wishes.
Therefore, it only remains to wait for the function to land in one of the next stable versions of the browser, although for the moment it is not even possible to test it in the version from Google Canary. Therefore, there is nothing left to do until we can test it and make it reality Without a doubt, good news, since today we need to synchronize everything between mobile and mobile. Computer, means that more and more users were missing this option.

Google currently has a Advanced Protection Program specially designed to protect users against hacking, even when you surf the Internet casually. This program is a security system designed to protect Google's personal accounts from users most at risk of intentional attacks.
Well, program users who enable account synchronization in the browser will receive new alerts that will alert them of any dangerous downloading that they are trying to make of Chrome. Even the browser itself can automatically block a download completely to prevent the user from being cheated or even forced to download a file with malicious software.
Without a doubt, it's a very interesting solution to end all those downloads that without our consent They are done on our computer and end up infecting us and putting our data at risk. And today, malware creators are finding more and more ways to start downloads without us knowing how to achieve their goals.
Therefore, if we want to be protected at this level and navigate more safely, the first thing to do is to: Be part of Google's advanced protection programWe can do it absolutely for free, although for that we will need to have two security keys and register them in our Google Account. One of them will be the main one, which must be wireless to connect to your computer and your mobile devices, and another in case we lose the first one.
From now on, these users will automatically begin to receive this type of protection against hazardous discharges, as confirmed by the user. Google is your official blog.

For example, it is also curious to know that out of these 188,000 people, only 13 have more than 10 million the users In 2019, although what has not been published, it is the exact number of each of those who make up this selected group. On the other hand and in the opposite part of the spectrum, it must be said that we find more than 19,000 extensions With zero installation, while 50% of the total has less than 16 installations per user.
Similarly, it should be noted that extensions of less than 1000 facilities currently represent approximately 87% of the total complements used in Google Chrome, which suggests that the vast majority of users generally use them Navigator.
With regard to extensions of more than 10 million installations, these can be divided into two groups, those added by means of a installation service, or those that are manually installed by users. Do not forget that three of the first 13 extensions are content blockers, two others focus on price comparison, while five others are related to platforms or popular services of Internet.
Finally, we will tell you that another data to take into account report to which we referred you indicates that almost 9% of the extensions for which users opt are paid, which are in turn divided into two categories: those requiring an advance payment, or those using purchases inside, although the first group accounts for only about 2.6% of the total establishments.
