Google Chrome gets a fresh look, better omnibox, and more

05.09.18

Google Chrome is rolling out a revamped design and a slew of new features, including a more powerful omnibox. Now it has more rounded corners and a new color palette. The shape of the tabs makes site favicons easier to see so you can navigate them better. And on iOS, where Chrome has been sorely neglected for a long while, the toolbar finally goes to the right place — the bottom of the screen, closer to where your thumbs are. There are new customization features, too. For the "new tab" screen, you can easily change the background image as well as the site suggestions. Autocomplete gets a overdue upgrade: you'll see favicons of sites in the drop-down, and Chrome will now show answers to some queries right in the autocomplete list, even before you hit Return.

Google Chrome alternatives are: Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera
