Chrome 97 arrived on start of 2022. This release brings better tools for deleting stored website data, nicer-looking web apps, and more granular zoom controls for the mobile version of the browser.

Along with the new features nearly 37 bug fixes has been done on Chrome 97! and Google has released it as a most stable version

Chrome 97 makes some changes to the Privacy and Security settings. You can now delete all the data stored by a website. Previously, you could only delete individual cookies. This new setting can be found at Settings > Security and Privacy > Site Settings > View Permissions and Data Stored Across Sites.


Chrome 94 started testing the ability for CSS to detect if a screen supports HDR content. That feature is now live in Chrome 97. This allows web developers to enable HDR content without compromising the experience for those who don’t have HDR displays.
