Google's Chrome 79 will warn you if your password has been stolen—or will be
Google usually bundles more than a few new features with each iteration of its browser, and Chrome 79 should add some fairly substantial performance and security improvements, including alerts if your password has been stolen.

The additional features include phishing protections and tab freezing, which will try to mitigate Chrome's voracious appetite for memory by limiting what actions a tab can take when not in use.

Monitoring passwords has typically been performed by sites like HaveIBeenPwned.com, which aggregates usernames and passwords from major data breaches and allows you to cross-check your own. Now Google will do this in real time, when you enter a password into a site within the browser. A popup will then recommend that you change them, wherever they've been used.

Review: Two weeks with a 16-inch MacBook Pro
I've been fortunate enough to spend a couple of weeks using one of Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pros, and thought I'd share a few thoughts on the new high-end notebook.

Skin deep? On first glance the new Mac definitely maintains the svelte and modern appearance of all the company's high-end Macs, a style inheritance that can be traced all the way back to the Titanium PowerBook G4.

This is an appearance that is often imitated and hardly ever matched and it means that anyone using one of these Macs is going to have the visceral feeling that they are using a high quality and professional solution. Which is the feeling you want when you're asked to spend from $2,799 on a computer system. (Though Apple is offering 6% Daily Cash if you buy one of these with an Apple Card).
