Google released Chrome 108 on Tuesday that is the last major feature update for 2022 with this cross-platform web browser.

Chrome 108 now officially supports Federated Credentials Management, which was previously referred to as WebID. The Federated Credentials Management "FedCM" was previously shipping as a dev/origin trial in prior releases but is now deemed ready to support.

There are several CSS additions this round including support for break-after, break-before, and break-inside. There is also support for using the CSS "overflow" property for replaced elements that paint outside of the content box. Chrome's CSS support also now has support for sv* units, lv* units, dv* units and the logical vi/vb units.

Chrome 108 also now allows printing with LayoutNG rather than printing using the legacy engine, support for Media Source Extensions (MSE) within DedicatedWorker contexts, variable COLRv1 support, and wild-cards for permissions policy origins.

Chrome 108 also removes various deprecated developer features, adds some new developer items as developer/origin trials, and other fixes. Chrome 108 also adds an optional new "energy saver" mode that can be used for trying to conserve background activity and visual effects to save power.

More details on the Chrome 108 changes via and the Chrome Release Blog.
