Google revealed some new advancements for the web and specifically Chrome browser at the Chrome Dev Summit 2017.The post will give a summary of Chrome Dev Summit 2017 Highlights.
One Tap Sign up
According to Google, authentication on websites acts as a primary reason why users don’t return to a website. Google is working on one-tap sign-up and auto sign-in feature that can be included in the sites. Developers with support for the sign-in library can enable millions of users who are already logged into their Google accounts in the browser to quickly create an account for the specific website and then allow automatic sign-ins. To make the automatic sign-in possible, Google will also offer integration with Credential Management API.
Trusted Web Activity
Google wants similar UI for both the web and the apps, which is why it has integrated web content with Android. In comparison to Custom Tabs, the latest Trusted Web Activity lets developers display content from their websites in the apps that don’t feature a toolbar. With these integrations, Google will combine the best of both worlds, i.e. native and web.
Payment Request API
The Google Payment Request API is a W3C standard candidate that is meant to eliminate checkout forms. It vastly improves user workflow during the purchase process, providing a more consistent user experience and enabling web merchants to easily leverage different payment methods. Enable easy checkout for customers in your app and on your website. Use the Google Payment API to request any credit or debit card stored in your customer’s Google account, including their Android Pay credentials
