Pop-ups could be forever gone with the latest Google Chrome update

Pop-ups could be forever gone with the latest Google Chrome update

Google Chrome might soon put an end to annoying pop-up notifications and alerts in your browser due to a new update. It revealed that it's making Chrome 'a more helpful browser' by using machine learning tools inside it that can shut down pop-ups before the user is even aware they are there.

The new feature will appear in Chrome 102 later this year and will help Chrome analyze a web page as it loads, and predict whether or not the page will be allowed to show notifications or other prompts. If the site has been reported as being annoying or malicious in the past, notifications will be automatically blocked.

'Page notifications bring you updates on sites you care about, but the notification permission prompt can become annoying,' Google noted in one of the blogs announcing the news.' Our goal is to create a browser that's always helpful, and we're excited about how machine learning can help,' it added.'

If a user visits such a website, they will be shown an announcement, which, ironically, informs them that their notifications have been automatically disabled.

Google explains that, as the algorithm is part of Chrome itself, data is kept private as it focuses on your specific device and usage. Google's latest move involves using AI and machine learning to improve its online experience.

Google's new machine learning model powers the service. It builds upon the work the company first did with its Safe Browsing in Chrome tool and its built-in phishing detection within Chrome to spot malicious or criminal websites that move from several URLs to others.

Google says that since the tool was launched in March 2022, it has detected '2.5 times as many potentially malicious sites and phishing attacks as the previous model, leading to a safer, more secure web'.

It also hopes to use the same technology in the future to provide users with a more engaging and intuitive toolbar within Chrome. The tool will display different buttons at certain times, such as displaying the share button prominently when on social media or displaying the voice search button on mobile.

Google has implemented a policy to penalize or block harmful notification requests in October 2020, when it blocked requests from sites that misled users when asking for permission or handling notification abuse in a misleading manner, with prompt informing users that the site may have bad intentions.
