Chrome Beta Material design update

Earlier this week we watched as Google gave the Google Play Store a spiffy new Material-ish redesign and next on the docket is Google’s very own Chrome web browser. But before Google can update stable channels for Chrome, they’ll first need to test out in beta.

Chrome Beta 37 (37.0.2062.39 to be exact) is now rolling out on Google Play and aside from a new simplified login that allow users to sign into their Google account once for all Google sites — the newly updated version of Chrome brings new Material design elements to the browser (including a more minimal Moonshine icon).

It’s nothing too major and from the wording on the official Chrome Blog we can expect to see more Material design elements to come (like the fading transition of web pages). Really, there’s not much to a web browser’s UI, but you will notice Chrome’s incognito tabs receiving a fresh new can of paint. Don’t forget the usual bug fixes and performance improvements have also been addressed.
