Google launches a design revamp for Chrome – This is how you can revert back

Every once in a while, Google launches a design revamp for their various application, and this time, it has hit Google Chrome. The notoriously RAM heavy browser, which is often touted as the best and fastest browser by it’s creator, has been treated with a brand new design, but it doesn’t seem be appealing to the user base.

The redesign gives the browser a more contemporary look, including redesigned icons, rounded edges and more. As is always the case with Google updates, this design update will be seeded to users in a phase-wise manner. The changes have received a lukewarm reaction from users who have received this design update, with many criticising the increased gap between buttons, and bigger menus, something that has been presumably done to cater to touchscreen devices.

Off late, we have seen Google redesign their apps to suit more touchscreen devices. The exact reason for this is not known, but considering the gradual increase in 2-in-1 Chromebook devices, it is not surprising that they are tailoring the applications to better suit those devices. Now, if you do not have a touch screen device that runs Chrome, chances are that the design may trigger your aesthetic sense, but outside of that, the functionality remains the same.

Now, if you do not like this new design update, there is a way to revert Chrome back to the original appearance. This is how you can do it –

Step 1. Open the Chrome browser on your computer.
