Google has revealed an early look at its upcoming redesign for the Chrome browser.
The new look – the first drastic change to the design of the browser since 2014 – will bring an updated address and search bar, new tab style, and colours.
Google is now rolling-out its long-rumoured redesign in an update to its experimental Chrome Canary browser, which allows early access to unfinished features for developers and beta testers before they hit the standard Chrome app.
Announcing the redesign on social media, Google’s Francois Beaufort warned users the new forthcoming changes could take ‘a while’ to get used to.

Google Chrome’s design has remained unchanged for a number of years, with the last shake-up to the user interface launched in 2014.
However, the upcoming refresh looks set to bring a number of touch-inspired changes to the user interface, which more rounded and boasts more white space.
Google has expanded the size of the address bar and search box, known as the ‘omnibox’, which should make it easier to select on touchscreen laptops.
It has also tweaked the colour to a shade of grey, compared to the previous white.
The updated omnibox also includes support for icons, which appear as you start to type and indicate whether the suggestions generated by the software as websites, or shortcuts to launch a Google search.
