Xiaomi today officially introduced the new MIUI 14 firmware for its smartphones and tablets. The new user interface tried to improve everything from the graphical interface to the lower level – the system architecture.

Xiaomi has tried very hard to make the firmware as small as possible. Also in MIUI 14, the so-called “photon engine” is implemented – with its help, developers will be able to create lighter and less resource-demanding applications. Firmware clears memory more aggressively. For example, rarely used applications are compressed as much as possible (this saves flash memory). Another savings option is to reduce the size of the firmware itself. In MIUI 14, it is 13.09 GB, much less than MIUI 13.

MIUI 14 will allow you to close app notifications that were previously impossible to close. Also, all new applications installed on a smartphone must be authorized by the user to display notifications.

The increase in security lies in the fact that now most of the actions (“more than 30 system scripts”) are processed directly on the device without using cloud technologies and, accordingly, without uploading data to the Web.

In MIUI 14, Xiaomi has improved the interaction between devices (including making it more visual in terms of interface) and has tried to improve a number of features implemented using AI. So, Xiao AI proprietary voice assistant can scan documents, translate text or speech, filter spam calls. Also, the ability to translate is implemented in the Gallery – the text from any image can be translated from/into 8 languages ​​(later language support will be expanded).

Also in MIUI 14, various services have appeared that are focused on the use of the whole family – with customizable roles and permissions. For example, all family members can work on a collaborative album of photos and videos.

MIUI 14 has new widgets, the size of icons can now be adjusted based on four display options, and you can place Tamagotchi in the form of a pet or a plant on the screen.

Now requires Windows 10 Google released the first version of

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.

Microsoft is determined users see annoying Windows 11 ads in

Microsoft has begun aggressively encouraging Windows 10 users to upgrade to the more modern operating system, Windows 11.

Microsoft is determined: users see annoying Windows 11 ads in full screen, leaving Windows 10 is not easy

Windows 10 users have been complaining online that a full-screen page has begun to appear on Windows 10 computers, offering to upgrade to Windows 11 and completely covering the desktop.

What’s more, Microsoft offers only two options for the obvious closing of this page, and both, in essence, mean “I agree.” The first button starts the update right at the moment you click it, and the second one allows you to schedule the installation at a later time. If you look closely, you can see a less noticeable “breaking the dead end” – a small link “Keep Windows 10”.

Needless to say, Windows 10 users are unhappy with Microsoft’s attempts to impose the operating system with tricky banners and optical illusions. Many users are likely to hit the first button that is visually highlighted with color without reading the message, let alone looking for the cancel button, just to get back to their desktop and do their work.

Luckily, Microsoft hasn’t launched an automatic update to Windows 11 yet, so the chances of you suddenly getting a new operating system are slim.

On February 1, Microsoft stopped selling Windows 10 licenses on its website.
