Google this week introduced a new update to Chrome that makes it easier to customize the appearance of the browser.
Although the company’s flagship program already had an option to change its graphic features, the improvements include a new side panel that makes the adjustment process more accessible, fast, and simple.
Now, when you press the Customize Chrome button (at the bottom right of the screen), instead of opening a window on the browser, the options will appear in a sidebar, from where you can try and activate the different preferences.
In this new dashboard, users will be able to experiment with new features and easily see how they will look in the browser as changes are made.
The same menu will allow you to choose from several themed collections, including new options featuring artwork commissioned by Google from Asian and Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, Native American, Latino, and African-American artists. And for those who have a hard time deciding on just one, there is a button to tell Chrome to automatically change the theme every day.
How to customize Google Chrome
When you enter Customize Chrome, you will see the option to Change theme. There you will find hundreds of images in different categories such as Landscapes, Art, Textures, and many more. And then the possibility of clicking Update daily if you wish.
This new update is ideal for those who use multiple profiles. So by assigning a different theme to your work and personal accounts, it’s easier to tell them apart.
Each theme will also be configurable with different color combinations. For example, you can start by choosing a theme and watch your browser adjust its color to match it. And then, by selecting other shades, in real time you will see if the chosen look is to your liking.
Finally, there are also hundreds of complementary themes and backgrounds available in the Google Web Store. Many of these themes are created by the community and offer illustrations of all kinds.
When will the new Google Chrome update be available?
Google reported that Chrome will begin to be updated with US accounts and then update worldwide in the coming weeks.
