Google Chrome Gains New Badge Feature on Menu Items

Tech giant Google is now working on bringing a new feature called ‘New’ badge on menu items. This feature is similar to the “N” badge on mobile applications or the “New” badge on newly installed programs and apps in the Start Menu of Windows 10. This new feature helps Chrome users on desktop learn about the latest updates in the browser.
