Chrome updates with Material Design for Linux/Windows/Mac&Chrome OS

Google Chromium promoter François Beaufort recently announced that the Google Chrome web browser user interface under Linux, Mac, Windows and Chrome OS will get a brand new design pattern. Over the past few months, the Google Chrome design team has been working hard to update the browser’s UI, including tab colouring, label shapes, fixed labels, but label patterns, warning indicators, and full-box suggestion icons.

Beaufort said on Google+: “Browser UI for Chrome OS, Linux, and Windows just got a Material design mode refresh in Canary 🐤 channel. Plenty of things have been updated for the better in my opinion: tab shape, single tab mode, omnibox suggestion icons, tab strip coloring, pinned tabs, and alert indicators.“. If you can’t wait for the updated version of the update, you can now test it through the Chrome Canary trial channel. But one thing to note is that there are some loopholes because they are still in the development stage.

MacOS users can set experimental flags chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md to “Refresh” and enable chrome://flags/#views-browser-windows to try it out now.
