    After nearly a day of usage, I am not too impressed by Tab Hover Card Images feature.
    I'm reverting back. Seems more gimmicky to me than useful.

    Hi Page! We haven't interacted for a long while, it is good to know you are still active, and I love your quotes in your signature... I agree these experimental features are basically decorative, they are not really that useful... By the way what is the difference between "Enabled, Enabled B, Enabled C" ?

    Best I was able to comeup with is...
    I can say without a doubt that I am not the one who is going to test the small but noticeable difference. ;)

    Btw, thanks for the + comment on the quotes. :cool:

    It's an unnecessary resource hog which I also disabled on Windows taskbar icons ('peek') long ago and I hope that it never becomes default on Chrome.

    I'm not seeing these options in "flags" in Chrome 78. What version are you using?

    Summary: A method is detailed - dubbed CSS Exfil - which can be used to steal targeted data using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as an attack vector. Due to the modern web's heavy reliance on CSS, a wide variety of data is potentially at risk, including: usernames, passwords, and sensitive data such as date of birth, social security numbers, and credit card numbers. The technique can also be used to de-anonymize users on dark nets like Tor.

    What I would like to know is how they managed to install malware via this zero day, because it doesn't seem to be a sandbox bypass. But Sandboxie would have at least contained the malware.
