Google Rolls Chrome 98 Into Beta With COLRv1 Font Support

Following last week’s release of Chrome 97, Google has promoted Chrome 98 to beta form.

Chrome 98 Feature

With Chrome 98 there are a variety of small additions but mostly developer-facing items. Some of the Chrome 98 beta highlights include:

– COLRv1 color gradient vector fonts are supported as a new font format. These color fonts are made up of glpyhs with multiple colors in them such as emoji, country flags, or multi-colored letters. More details on COLRv1 fonts via developer.chrome.com.

– More preparations for Chrome 100 with hitting a three-digit version to ensure HTTP user agent string parsing by websites behaves fine.

– HDR color media queries with CSS of dynamic range and video-dynamic range.

– Support for controlling window.open() behavior whether it’s a pop-up in a new window or just a new tab.

Details on other Chrome 98 developer changes can be found via ChromeStatus.com. More details on today’s Chrome 98 beta over on Chromium.org.
