Chrome 58 official version released without Touch Bar support
Google, a couple of days ago, has sent update notifications of Chrome 58 to Mac, Windows and Linux systems. This update brought new features along with 29 security fixes and stability improvements for developers. But the expected Chrome 58 support for MacBook Pro Touch Bar hasn’t been added this time.
Theoretically the Touch Bar on MacBook Pro can add browser bookmarks, refresh, go forward/backward between web pages, which, however, isn’t included in the Chrome 58 update, though other features are still great. Chrome 58 now fully supports IndexedDB 2.0, so that users can manage data collection on Chrome more easily. IDB 2.0 adopted the brand new infrastructure management and batch processing as well as more standard failure processing.
Chrome 58 also improved iframe navigation. Automatic redirection leading to third-party content (e.g. ads) may bother users and even cause security problems. Therefore, developers get to put those third-party content to sandboxing iframe, avoiding the said situation. But in certain cases, clicking those content need the top navigation. To solve the problem, Chrome 58 now supports the new iframe sandbox keyword “allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation”, which allows iframe users to get the top navigation during interactive operation and stops redirection.
As for security, the Chrome 58 update fixed 29 vulnerabilities, which were discovered by external developers, and each of them has been rewarded by Google. Now the Chrome 58 update is only for desktop computers, and will later be available on Android and Chrome OS.
