Enthusiasts have released Android 13 for the almost five-year-old Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note9

The One UI 5.0 skin based on Android 13 is supported by many Samsung smartphones, but the Galaxy S9 and Note9 are not on this list.

The mobile developer community XDA Developers reported that Android 13 and One UI 5.0 are now available thanks to the unofficial Noble ROM 3.0 ported to the Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note9. Developer AlexisXDA used the Android 13 firmware for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note10 Lite to create a version suitable for 2018 flagships.

Noble ROM 3.0 is currently only available for Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note9 versions based on Exynos 9810.

Of course, you can use such firmware only at your own peril and risk, being well aware of what you are doing and what to do if something goes wrong.

Google has released a branded browser update. The latest version of Chrome 110 is now available to a limited number of users, but already belongs to the stable stage.

Chrome 110 was the first version of Google’s browser to have an adjusted release schedule with a more cautious approach to distribution. Google has now given access to Chrome 110 to a small number of Chrome 109 users, with a major release coming in a week. It is assumed that this approach will allow developers to identify problems with the browser and fix them before a large-scale launch.

Chrome 110 contains a rather long list of changes, but many of them are mainly relevant to developers, not ordinary users. For example, Chrome 109 was supposed to be the first version of the browser to implement an alternative to Google support for CHIPS (Cookies Having Independent Partitioned State), a proprietary addition to Cookies. It looks like CHIPS support has been moved to Chrome 110.

Of the notable innovations, you can now insert characters like “ß” and “ς” in domain names. These characters have been handled correctly in Firefox and Safari since 2016. Another innovation is a simplified procedure for setting up languages ​​in the built-in Google Translate service for translating pages. Translator settings are available directly in the browser settings at chrome://settings/language.

Chrome 110 also drops support for Windows 7 and 8.1. The browser requires Windows 10 or later to run.
