Noticed this calendar icon on searching. Does nothing but shows the date.

Earlier this year, Google created “Password Checkup,” a tool that checks if any of your passwords have been revealed in an online data breach, as an extension for desktop Chrome. In the near future, the leak detection part of Password Checkup will become a default feature of Google Chrome instead of an optional extension.

Google 'Password Checkup' will soon be built into Chrome - 9to5Google

Get more done with a little help from Google Chrome

Ever lost track of tabs on your phone? Us too. Over the next few weeks, you’ll see Android’s new grid layout, which helps you select tabs more easily and preview thumbnails of the tabs you have open. (iOS users will already see this tab grid layout).
There’s also a new way to group tabs on your Android device, which helps you keep track of the tabs that are open. To do this, drag and drop one tab on top of another in the new tab grid layout. After opening one of the grouped tabs, you can easily switch between the tabs in the group using the new tab switcher at the bottom of your screen.
If you have so many tabs open on your laptop that you can’t read the page titles anymore (guilty!), you can now preview your tabs by hovering over them with your cursor. For now you’ll see the page title, and soon you’ll see a thumbnail of the page too.
If you want to save a link from your phone so you can open it later on your laptop (or vice versa), you no longer have to do the “email yourself but forget to read it” thing. Now you can use Chrome to send a tab to another computer, phone, or tablet on which you are signed in and have sync enabled.
Chrome’s address bar helps you get to your results faster than ever. Now on both desktop and Android, answers will show up inside the address bar where you type your query—whether you’re looking for results about sporting events or instant answers about the local weather or translations of a foreign word.
Your work environment impacts productivity and your mood. If plants and nature help you relax and unwind, change the background of your new tab page to a floral design. If you draw energy from the color yellow, use Chrome’s new color customization tool to change the color of your entire browser to the shade that brings you bliss. As for me, my browser color matches my hair—bright pink.

Get image descriptions on Chrome - Google Chrome Help

Commenting on this, Laura Allen, a senior program manager on the Chrome accessibility team said:
The unfortunate state right now is that there are still millions and millions of unlabeled images across the web. When you’re navigating with a screen reader or a Braille display, when you get to one of those images, you’ll actually just basically hear ‘image’ or ‘unlabeled graphic,’ or my favorite, a super long string of numbers which is the file name, which is just totally irrelevant.
Chrome’s new AI feature solves one of the web’s eternal problems
