Tech giant Google’s Chromium team has recently rolled out a steady version of Chrome 59 for its desktop users. The all new version brings a lot of under-the-hood changes, security fixes, and one notable addition is the Material design makeover for the Settings menu.
As the Chrome browser got a Material Design revamp in previous versions – Chrome 52 for Mac and Chrome 53 for Windows – the Settings menu has stayed unaffected. Now, Chrome 59 finally brings that change with a completely new design.
The Chrome Settings menu which was testing mode for quite a while is now been noticeable in the steady version once the latest version updated .The slick material design fetches a whole new look with the same basic settings still in place. There’s also a new blue action bar for explore, and a navigation menu that lets the user shoot to significant categories. It pops-up from the side, with Advanced Settings still at the bottom hiding more controls for users. Whereas no additional settings have been added, it’s a big refurbish from the old design, and a much needed one.
The all new update brings support for native notifications for Mac users and also lends support for animated PNG format as well. According to 9to5Mac reports Chrome 59 brings a new tool called Headless Chromium intended specifically at running automated testing and for server environments where a visible UI isn’t needed. The support is accessible on Mac and Linux, with a Windows implementation coming soon.’
As of now, the Chrome 59.0.3071.86 is rolled out for Windows, Mac, and Linux users alike, and is expected to reach out to all the users in the coming weeks. One can check the update manually by clicking the menu icon, navigating to Help > About Chrome, and check if the newest version has arrived. If it has, it will automatically start updating to the latest version. Google says that Android and Chrome OS versions will roll out soon.
