I can not edit my post anymore :(

PM a mod and they will edit it for you.

P.S. It's about time you Chrome junkies finally got some common sense and create a single thread for all of your releases. Firefox has had their own for more than a year.

I just wonder if Google will ever try a new GUI... those tabs are... :no:

What's supposedly "wrong" with the tabs in Chrome?

Absolutely nothing. Google gets the concept of not messing around with GUI and just focusing on what really matters: performance and features. If only Mozilla could take a hint, they could catch up on those areas.

I just don't like them aesthetically. I would like something more minimal and (at least apparently) more OS integrated.

I disagree. The tabs in Chrome are very simple, minimalist and efficient. I really don't like the angular tabs seen in other browsers and Mozilla has clearly come to the same conclusion as they're looking to change to a style similar to Chrome's tabs. Google hit on a very good UI from the get-go and it's one of the few browsers to not undergo considerable visual changes.

Done

At the beginning I thought like you but now I won't miss them.

Yes, but Australis tabs are, for me, more aesthetically pleasant.

Don't see that much of a difference

I like the curves and how everything is integrated in the title bar. The GUI in Australis, for me, it's more elegant while in Chrome it's... blank, for a lack of a better word.

I'm running the latest Canary build (dev build?) along with the latest Chromium build as well. Anything Flash eventually crashes on me in Canary, but not Chromium. Actually thinking about going back to the beta channel until the Flash issue is resolved, as it is rather annoying obviously. I've reported it so hopefully other people are having the same issue and Google can work on it at some point :)

will switch once they fix it.

I hadn't seen any flickering. Any place specific you saw it? Like, full page scrolling or full screen games or something? I can try to see if I can reproduce the issue I suppose.

      The Windows 11-styled Chrome menus are now live in Canary channel
      by Sayan Sen

      Right now, there is a lot of buzz in the tech community surrounding the upcoming Windows 11 OS from Microsoft, and in a recent leak from the Chromium Gerrit, we learned that the development team at Google's Chrome is working on a new project featuring Windows 11-styled context menus. As such, the new context menus will sport the rounded corner-styled theme that the next-gen OS is bringing with it.

      In fact, a recent sample survey among the U.S.- based PC users even showed that a large number of participants have found the new Windows 11 aesthetic and UI the most appealing feature of the OS. So it kinda makes sense for Google to go in this direction.



      The same Reddit user who had spotted the earlier Gerrit code has now also posted images of the upcoming Windows 11-style context menu with rounded corners, which have been obtained from the Chrome Canary channel (image above).

      The associated Chrome flag, when we enter chrome://flags in the address bar, further confirms that the feature can be enabled across all versions of Windows, something that was already expected from the earlier leaked code.



      So we had a look at it on Windows 10 and here's is how it appears:

      However, since the new Windows 11 style Chrome menus are now just a part of Canary channel, it may take a while before it reaches the final Stable build as there likely will be plenty of bugs to resolve.

      Google Chrome will soon show you suggestions for Drive files when you open a new tab
      by Usama Jawad



      Due to the fact that Google Chrome is used by billions of people all over the globe, the browser is regularly updated with new features and improvements to cater to the ever-changing needs of its user base. Just yesterday, we learned that Chrome is likely getting rounded corners to match the design language of Microsoft's upcoming Windows 11 release. Now, Google has revealed that it will soon start surfacing Drive files when you open a new tab in Chrome.

      The company says that rather than showing you files based on recency, the content surfaced will be based on "intelligent suggestions". According to Google, this will save users time and mental effort in finding the file that they need as they will be able to grab it directly from the new user interface provided on a new Chrome tab, as can be seen below:



      Google says that this experience will be enabled by default if you haven't customized the New Tab Page interface. If an IT admin has set a custom experience for New Tab Page at an organizational level, this feature will not be enabled by default for those users. IT admins can head to this page to find out how to toggle the setting. Meanwhile, non-organizational users can simply utilize the "Customize Chrome" button in the bottom right corner to enable or disable Google Drive cards.

      Intelligent suggestions for Google Drive cards in Chrome have been set to release on a "Gradual rollout" basis, which means that it may take up to 15 days for the feature to become visible to you. We don't have it on our devices yet. It is being rolled out to all personal Google accounts, Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.
