Google launched the Chrome 114 browser for the Beta channel and developers can access two new CSS features and use additional Web APIs. Previous Chrome betas had WebGPU support.
The latest Google Chrome Beta release adds CSS Heading Balance, which allows adjusting line lengths in elements for better readability by avoiding typography short lines of text isolated or separated from the rest of the paragraph. According to Google, the new technology will make elements like titles more visually appealing.
The second CSS change in Chrome 114 is the overflow: overlay alias. Prevents content from extending into the scrollbar when the operating system uses fixed, non-covering scrollbars.
Another notable addition in Chrome 114 is the scrollend event, which allows developers to know when the user has finished scrolling via an event listener. Google says the scroll listener API helps to call new animations, fetch additional content, and make scroll-end events simpler and more consistent.
