So you can try the new desktop design of Google Chrome

We have already spoken to you several times about the direction that Google is taking at the design level , both in Android and in the rest of its platforms and services. What we know today as “Material Design 2” , is about to materialize in the form of new style guides, which little by little are taking shape in some of the main apps of the company.

One of the apps that is ready to make the leap to the new design seems to be Chrome, the popular Internet browser cross-platform, that only a couple of weeks ago received a new style in its edition for Android , and that now is preparing to receive a redesign in its desktop version.

Specifically, and as reported since 9to5Google , the company has begun to test the new design in the unstable variant Canary of Chrome , and anyone who wants it can by itself the new appearance, and take a first look at what will become the future interface of Google Chrome.

How to activate the new Chrome design

Obviously, the first step when proceeding to activate the design, is install the version Canary of the app . Since it is a very unstable version, it is not recommended to use it as a main browser, but fortunately it can coexist along with other variants of Chrome, and therefore it is not necessary to uninstall the stable version of the browser. On the other hand, it is necessary to comment that this option is available in version 68 of Chrome Canary, and only in the edition for the Windows operating system.

Once installed and executed, it is time to open the browser and enable the new experimental interface . This will be possible from the menu flags of Chrome, accessing directly to the address chrome: // flags / # top-chrome-md . A highlighted option will appear, with a pull-down menu on the right side, from which we must Select the option “Refresh”.

Now, once the option has been activated and the browser restarted, we will see how the design of Chrome has changed, with much more rounded lines, clearer backgrounds and new icons such as the new tab, which now becomes a ‘+’ sign.

At the moment, we do not know when the implementation of this new design philosophy will be permanently implemented, or if new interface components will change before publicly jumping to the stable version of Chrome. Anyway, it is very likely that the next Google I / O is the scenario chosen by the company to offer us more news about the future design that will plague the interfaces of all its services.
