What is /g/'s opinion on Google Chrome's new "material" design? Is it an improvement, or a bad decision?

I don't like the decision to put the new tab button on the right side of the tabs. This continues the tradition of having to "chase" the new tab button with your mouse if you don't have a lot of tabs open and you want to open quite a few at once.
Yes, I know what keyboard shortcuts are, but in terms of design it's just a bad choice.
I also don't like the fact that they now display your Google profile right next to the omnibox at all times. I remember the days where having your first name next to the navigation icons was optional and could be disabled, this shit just isn't cool.
Also, the design is generally just a bit close to Firefox, isn't it?

Other than that, it's OK I guess.

>> No.67590249

Yeah, but it's a flag. Whenever a standard becomes relegated to a flag in Chrome, you just know it's going to disappear entirely in a few versions.
The ability to revert to the previous look won't be around for long.

they're brainlet newfags at design, they see a blog article that says rounded corners are better, they try to put rounded corners everywhere, also the recent tech advancements in smartphone displays which allowed rounded corners and notches, it's a stupid fad, hopefully they will figure out a more balanced use of sharp vs soft and not go full queer like apple did, microsoft seems to stick with their squared design which has grown on me

Hate it. Looks like a cheap knock-off, especially on a high dpi display. The round look clashes with the sharp features. The sizes also look off (e.g tabs to high).

I don't use chrome but at least visually I see an improvement. The new tab button on the left for example is more intuitive. The rounded address bar is more modern too. Also, it's more seamless thanks to the inverted color scheme. I never liked the sharp edges on the old layout, even if it gave it some personality.
As a whole it feels updated and more in tune with the rest of google's design.

so basically itt: people complaining about change who don't know shit about design.

>> No.67596118

>more modern put forward as a positive

>> No.67596243

well, I am an active graphic designer, so I know a thing or two. But we're on 4chan and I could be a NEET instead and no one would ever know, so I made actual points.

Yes, modern is good when executed correctly. Please tell my how it's bad.

Then again, I've always used FF for its customization so we do agree on some things.

>> No.67597621

It's a pointless change for the sake of a change, but I don't hate it. It's similar enough to the old design to not be distracting.

What I do hate is the new tab page that shows small icons instead of webpage thumbnails (thankfully, this can be disabled).

I also hate the new video player that completely lacks ability to control volume. I will never understand how could anyone think that removing volume control from a video player would be a good idea. Can be disabled too (for now).

And I absolutely hate their attempts to obfuscate/hide full URLs from the address bar, because Chrome's target audience is retarded.
(Disabled in Chromium by default)

But most importantly, I don't really care, because I'm going to switch back to Firefox soon.

Here is what bothers me. Previously this space was used for the non-removable Google account button, which they now moved down to the toolbar. But the empty space is still there, instead of being used to fit more tabs.

you absolute brainlet
new tabs go on the right
we read from left to right
with the old style the tabs weren't indistinguishable blobs so you could easily see where the rightmost tab was
putting the button in the far left corner would require a retarded amount of mouse movement
placing the button on the next to the rightmost tab obviously makes more sense and it is no surprise that google has placed it there
