Google releases Chrome 61, adds JavaScript Module, WebShare, and WebUSB API support

The tech giant recently updated its popular web browser for Mac, Windows, and Linux. The update gives users access to native JavaScript Modules and allows web apps to access permitted USB drives along with some bug fixes and security updates.

The native support for JavaScript modules is via the <script type=”module” element. Chrome would then be able to pick up granular dependencies in parallel, take advantage of caching, avoid duplications across the page, and ensure that scripts execute in the correct order.

Google also added Web Share API support on android which allows the integration of sharing buttons on the user’s site for each social media network and WebUSB API support allowing web apps to access USB devices such as keyboards, mouse, and printers as long as the user has provided permission.

Google also made some security changes and bug fixes. Click here for the full changelog.
