Google Chrome Receives a New Logo

Chrome - New logo

Last Friday the Chromium logo was updated, and this week Chrome is following suit.  The new Chrome logo is flat, simple, and looks a lot less like a pokeball. Currently it is only available in the developer channel version of Chrome, but it should probably hit the stable channel within the next week or two.

We still don’t have any information regarding why the change took place, but it looks a lot less intrusive; maybe that is what Google is going for. 

If you’d like to snag the icon pack early and start using it before the official update rolls by, we’ve uploaded the icon pack for your convenience.

What do you think of the new Chrome logo?  Is it ugly, beautiful, or something else entirely?

      I agree, that one is far superior to this “new” design they have.

    I am a minimalist. Keep things clean, easy and simple. With that in mind, I like the new logo. It probably will help pages load faster as well which when you look at the traffic on Google sites my guess is it will save a few billion KWH of power as well 🙂
