Here are the best themes for Mac. It would be a lie if we say that Mac OS isn't a beautiful OS. This working environment, full of details and beauty is great when it comes to boosting your productivity.
The latest update to Google Chrome is on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Notably, brings the to all operating systems with the desktop version focusing on the “top chrome.” Meanwhile, the browser is moving on to the next stage of HTTPS adoption, preparing to deprecate Flash, and more. Chrome’s Google Material Theme for Mac, Windows, and Linux is primarily centered on the top portion of the interface. To start, the brighter background matches the trend of Tabs now feature rounded corners up top that gracefully slope into the rest of the bar. Like the New Tab ‘plus’ button, background tabs lose their sharp and angular outlines with only a line to visually separate tabs not currently in view. Below this, the address box is pill-shaped with the Omnibar dropdown featuring URLs and search suggestions now only spanning the width of the bar, rather than the full page. To the right of that is a new avatar icon that replaces your name in the top-right corner and provides shortcuts to passwords and other payment information.
Users can customize the New Tab page with an uploaded background image or from a Google collection. That page has also been redesigned with a pill-shaped search bar and rounded favicons, instead of page previews. A smarter Omnibox displays inline results for the weather, definitions, sports scores, translations, and answers to questions. An icon at the left prefaces the result type, while searches for people and famous figures include a small image. A full rundown of 10th anniversary changes are.
The Picture-in-Picture API on desktop browsers is in Chrome 69. An overflow menu in the bottom-right corner allows users to pop-out a video. The resulting window in the bottom-right corner — that can be moved anywhere on-screen — features a pause button, while the tab displays a PiP icon in the status bar. While the API is officially enabled, no sites are taking advantage of it yet, while users might still need to enable two flags to get it up and running. One immediate use case is opening.mp4 files and other videos stored on your computer in Chrome. Chrome://flags/#enable-surfaces-for-videos chrome://flags/#enable-picture-in-picture After marking all HTTP sites with a “Not secure” badge in, Google will begin on HTTPS sites to establish that the “default unmarked state is secure.” The gray lock icon will remain in the Omnibar, but Google’s goal is to only make users aware of sites that are insecure.
Also on the security front, Chrome 69 requires users to explicitly grant sites permission to use Flash after every browser restart. Google last year published a in Chrome following Adobe announcing that it is no longer supporting or updating the plugin after December 2020.
In addition to (U2F), the Web Authentication API now supports devices, which provides advanced security capabilities like biometric authentication and resident keys (keys stored on the device). On Windows, version 69 reduces browser crashes. This new default can be circumvented by temporarily enabling the software with a new ThirdPartyBlockingEnabled policy. Chrome for the OS also gains and touchpad gesture navigation. Also for enterprise is a new Password Alert policy that works like the existing extension. If managed users sign-in to suspicious websites or pages not whitelisted, admins can prompt users to reset their passwords. Chrome 69 for desktops is available now, with Android and Chrome OS following shortly.
For the most part, you’ll want to use cDock to apply themes that can radically or subtly change how your dock looks. CDock comes with many themes included, or you can create your own custom themes.
For example, you can make your Dock transparent, which lets you clearly see whatever is behind it. Or, you can make it pink! There’s really no limit because cDock has a custom option, so you can change the appearance of your Dock to really anything you desire, you can even skin it with a picture. Many of the features found on the cDock interface, are things you could already adjust but you also have other options, such as being able to lock Dock contents so they cannot be moved for removed. You can also add app spacers, which are essentially blank tiles, allowing you to separate apps into groups. Doc spacers, on the other hand, allow you to space out your stacks and running apps. You can also add a recents folder, such as here with our Recent Applications stack. Right-clicking (if you’re of the two-button mouse persuasion) reveals options to change that recents folder to one of five different types.
You might have noticed in the earlier screenshot, the option to show only running applications. This is just what it sounds like, whatever applications are running will be the only ones that appear in the Dock. We imagine this might useful for restraining user focus to small set of applications, or you could use it as a sort of quasi-security feature, which doesn’t mean people can’t but discourages them from casually launching other apps when they’re using your computer. Finally, the other feature we want to point out is the colored Finder sidebar (Favorites) icons option. In OS X Mavericks and Yosemite, the Favorites sidebar has monochrome icons, which are simple, unassuming, and kind of drab. If you want to change to colored sidebar icons though, you can then customize them to your heart’s content, which is especially nice versus the plain folder icons you see in the previous screenshot. CDock has some settings, which you should be aware of, specifically the option to Restore Dock, so you can revert to your previous Dock configuration if you just want to start over.
This won’t remove spacers and recents folders, but it will undo any change you made to the Dock’s overall appearance. CDock isn’t complicated, but it does pack a lot of functionality into it. If you do decide to use it, even if it’s just occasionally, it’s good to know that once you select a change and hit “Apply,” you will have to keep relaunching the app to make further changes. It’s probably a good idea to either pin it to your Dock or keep the application package’s location accessible until you’re done making your tweaks. Also, though cDock is up to version 6.1.1 (as of this writing), it’s still being developed, so make sure you’re always using the most recent version. RELATED: If you’re an OS X vet, then you already probably know some ways you can hack your Dock using terminal commands.
The nice thing about cDock (other than being completely free), is that it eschews all that, allowing you change the Dock quickly and easily, without needing to know a thing about the command line. We’ll be covering how to create custom Docks in an upcoming article, but in the meantime, feel free to play around with cDock on your own and see what you can come up with.
