About

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: 

    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.

    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

    Pros: 

    It didn't stress my mac as much as the previous version.

    Cons: 

    Too light and contrast is too low

    On a mac, the new tabs are extremely white, so it looks like staring on a photo flash every time I open a new tab. Wish there was an eye comfort setting.

    The top URL input bar has a washed out grey. Which there was more contract between functional and non functional parts of the UI, even when the functional parts are not focused.

    I used to hear the cooling fan go on overdrive on the previous version, but I'm using it since 8 hours with no noise.

    Pros: 

    I guess we could it call it something new

    Cons: 

    When Show Bookmarks Bar is on, visual white gutter height not adjusted - doesn't seem so polished

    Never been a huge fan of Chrome due to it's hoggish nature, lack of good privacy, sub-par Inspect Element feature, etc... [should I mention that it updates itself when it wants to - it hadn't updated my Chrome since v59 and claimed that there were no updates when I tried forcing it to].

    This feels like a version update to make some noise around it's 10yr anniversary but not really something that is going to make that big a difference in the world of browsers...

    Wish Google would truly try to innovate and rethink browsing ENTIRELY like Opera did with their concept browser: Opera Neon

    Pros: 

    Love the redesign. Was super excited when this landed in Canary

    Cons: 

    "Hold Cmd+Q to quit" is the most annoying thing any software has ever introduced. And I was here for After Effects CC2017 update

    Please let me close the browser via Cmd+Q so I don't have to rage force quit it every time

    Pros: 

    It seems they're doing something

    Cons: 

    All the commands are on top of 6" 7" 42" phones...and our thumbs are only 2" long

    One inevitably wonders if all Chrome for Android devs are using iOS, which has controls at the bottom, where it makes more sense.

  • Pros: 

    Something... new?

    Cons: 

    Google really sucks at design. Especially disappearing text in tabs is awful.

    It's awful update. Worse than ever. I feel like having iPhone UI like 3 years ago.

  • Pros: 

    None as far as I can see

    Cons: 

    Slower, lots of empty white space (more scrolling required), several keyboard shortcuts broken, less snappy with several tabs open

    Nothing to like about this update as far as I can tell

    Pros: 

    still smooth

    Cons: 

    i didn't like the way toolbar have to stay in full screen + I like the previous sharp looking or taps and green security look on page URL.

  • Pros: 

    Easy and very comfortable to use for beginners

    Cons: 

    It's a security nightmare

    I'll never use that crap that spies on the user, knows everything about them and sends tons of data to Google and Lord knows whom else...
