Google has reimagined extensions for Chrome. You won’t recognize the browser


Google is preparing a significant design innovation in the interface of its Chrome browser. 9to5Google writes about it.

This is a completely new multifunctional sidebar. It will soon be supported by Manifest V3 extensions that will be able to customize it for completely different tasks. Right now, Chrome’s sidebar is practically useless: it only offers bookmarks and a reading list.


Thanks to the new Chrome Sidebar API, it can turn into mini-apps that interact usefully with the current web page. For example, a translator extension, dictionary, notes, and more can be built into it. And the panel can open when you visit a specific page or remain open on all sites. Also, the API will allow you to customize the appearance of sites. It all depends on the imagination of the extension developers.

Google says the new API will significantly enrich the user’s “web journey”. Its toolkit really allows you to make web surfing more practical, faster and more convenient. The innovation is already available in Chrome Beta 114, but until a new type of extension appears, it will not be possible to try it in practice.
