Google yesterday, July 11, rolled out a new design refresh mode update to its Chrome Canary experimental browser across Chrome OS, Linux, and Windows. This suggests that the main Chrome browser is going to get a full redesign soon.

The update enables the new ‘Material Design Browser UI’ in Chrome Canary by default across the mentioned operating systems. The new set of changes includes a refreshed Material Design address bar, tweaked tab shape, and tab colors, single tab mode, tab strip coloring, pinned tabs, alert indicators, and Omnibox suggestion icons.

Among operating systems, macOS is yet to receive the ‘enable by default’ feature, but XDA Developers says that a new update can be enabled on Mac devices with an experimental flag. If you are using an Apple device, then you can set an experimental flag by refreshing the link and then enabling the new Chrome features.

As for the newness, Chrome users will be happy to get a revived browser appearance that has remained the same for a long time. The darker color and the tweaked tabs are to add styles, although Google will want to roll the update steadily in order to adapt the design with time.

XDA Developers calls this update as Material Design 2.0 and reports that Francois Beaufort on behalf of the Chrome team, has announced it going live. Now, since the browser is being actively developed by Google, expect to see one or two bugs while using Chrome. Google will surely monitor inconveniences, provide necessary fixes, and expect feedback.

Stay tuned to follow the development of the redesigning, and a possible release date of the entire update for the main Chrome browser, which might come by the end of the year!
