Google has promoted Chrome 104 to stable today as their newest feature update to this leading, cross-platform web browser.

Chrome 104 adds support for region capture as part of self-captured video tracks typically for video conferencing purposes. This region capture is basically cropping the self-capture video track in order to remove some content around it before sharing it remotely. The region capture should be useful for video conferencing and web-based productivity/collaboration software.

Chrome 104 also adds new origin trials such as for shared element transitions and opt-out of credit card storage, updates to the speculation rules handling, additions to the multi-screen window placement interface, and various new APIs. WebGL Canvas Color Management has been added for allowing WebGL to set the color space when drawing a buffer and a color space when importing a texture.

Today's Chrome 104 release also brings a number of security fixes, including seven high CVEs being addressed.
