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.

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.

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.

Pros:

Looks cute?

Cons:

Keyboard shortcuts no longer work!!!!

Maybe they changed it up? On Mac, It seems to now be Option + Command + left arrow for previous tab and right arrow for next tab. Not sure what it is on Windows if you are on Windows
It's always been Option + Command + left/right arrows on the Mac. Still works for me

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
