Chrome is getting a new look today, 10 years after Google’s browser first launched. 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.

    Pros: 

    tell me about it

    Cons: 

    WHY Omnibox UI Hide Steady-State URL Scheme and Trivial Subdomains

    It's hard tell which host I was browsing since the Chrome team turn on this feature: chrome://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-scheme-and-subdomains

    Ricki Y. HAN has used this product for one year.

    Pros: 

    Looks cute?

    Cons: 

    Keyboard shortcuts no longer work!!!!

    shift+command+open-bracket is the UNIVERSAL symbol for previous tab, and shift+command+close-bracket is THE symbol for next tab. Why remove this? Browser is broken as far as I am concerned.

    Jeff Kerr has used this product for one day.

Updates include: - More rounded shapes, new icons and a new colour palette. - Changed the shape of our tabs so that the website icons are easier to see, which makes it easier to navigate across lots of tabs - simplified the prompts, menus, and even the URLs in your address bar - Smart answers directly in your search bar

Woo! I'm always a fan of browser updates. Maybe this version won't eat up my RAM. 😂

@brunolemos Well, that's disappointing.

OK, it's a very opportunistic comment but for French people, I just released a new episode today of my podcast with Sébastien Gabriel, Senior Visual Designer on Google Chrome. We discuss about Chrome and its design and you'll learn more about the amazing level of details and precision these guys are diving into. Way much more than what strikes the eye ;-) 👉 https://pcast.io/1394731893

I think they overdid it with these super round corners everywhere. Looks cartoonish to me :D (still my favorite browser though.. :p)

@dstuecken This new tab design has a very close resemblance to the Pixel 3 notch (according to leaks). Did they collaborate on this?
