Codenamed Chrome Refresh 2023, it refers to new design elements from Google's Material You design language, which promises to produce more personalized and customizable user experiences for various platforms and .

So Chrome will get "minor improvements". Google developers and internal flags, however, use the word "refresh" to describe the new look, because Chrome hasn't undergone a dramatic overhaul over time. Your favorite features aren't going anywhere, you'll find them where they were, as the main interface will be the same.

Here are some of the changes coming with the Chrome Refresh 2023 update:

  • Bigger and rounder toolbars, tab and menu buttons and icons.
  • A new design for the address bar and search box, also known as the main box, which will include a large button on the left side to display details about the current website, including its security status and permissions.
  • Added rounded edges for elements like text fields and popups.
  • The default color scheme for the tab bar will be light blue, and in the future you will be able to change the shades.
  • It will support multiple operating systems and devices, and the design will be more cohesive.

As we mentioned above, you can try the Chrome Refresh 2023 update before it goes live.
