    Google has begun pushing out Chrome 70 late on Tuesday, reluctantly providing a solution to fix its controversial sign-in snafu while also introducing app-like Progressive Web Apps to Windows machines.

    Google Chrome 70 is available now, bringing necessary fixes following controversial changes to sign-in practices in Chrome 69. Additionally, the new update brings support for Progressive Web Apps on Windows and a new video codec. First and foremost is the fix to a controversial new setting.
