Its been 10 years of Google Chrome Browser first launched and to celebrate this Chrome is getting a new look today The new design includes rounded shapes and tabs, a fresh color palette, and updated icons. Google is updating the whole of Chrome to include this new user interface, and altering prompts, menus, and URLs in the address bar to match the new design.
The new rounded tabs are perhaps the most noticeable change, moving Chrome away from the trapezoid like shaped tabs that have been available for years. Chrome’s new tabs are designed to be easier to see at a glance, which will be useful for those who like to have far too many tabs open in their browser.
Most notably, the app now has a flatter, rounder design more in line with Google’s Material Design principles these changes will be seen on both mobile and desktop. Website icons are now easier to see when you’ve overloaded a window with tabs, and menus and other design elements have been tweaked and simplified throughout various versions of the app.
Apart from that Google is also tweaking how its address bar works by showing answers to results directly in the bar without opening a new tab. Results like information on celebrities, sporting events, and weather will automatically appear in the address bar, and you’ll even be able to use the address bar to find an open tab and switch to it.
Google is also making some changes on how autofill works in Chrome. This latest version, Chrome 69, will more accurately fill in passwords, addresses, and credit card numbers into forms and store this information in a Google Account. Google is also getting an improved password manager that will automatically generate and suggest a strong password for sites when you sign up to them. Chrome will then store this password and make it available on both desktop and mobile.
