Google is planning a redesign for Chrome, its browser, that would adopt the “Material Design” ideas that Android uses, according to The Next Web.
Screenshots of the redesign were spotted on Google’s developer website and show a slight tweak to the way Chrome looks, including squarer corners, a flatter look, and redesigned buttons for bookmarks and information.
According to the report, the new design is functional but not finished and it’s not yet known when Google plans to roll out the update.
Here is what the new design looks like:
Tabs will now have a squared off look, rather than a rounded one, and Google has ditched the line-based settings menu in favour of three dots.
The browser will feature an all-new incognito mode, for private browsing, that turns all of the UI black.
This is the updated Settings page, which now has clearer options for appearance, search, and changing the default browser.
