Google Gives Chrome for Android A Material Design Makeover

Want an Early glimpse at Google’s Material Design? The search giant this week quietly updated Chrome for Android, which features the flatter, more functional aesthetic. It looks quite nice, and is an especially good look at what’s to come when Android L hits later this fall.

Of course, with the good always comes the bad. Many people are unhappy with the redesign—particularly with Google’s decision to remove the refresh icon from the address bar. It looks like Google may have went with fashion over function, but I’m sure plenty more updates will be available down the road.

In addition to the Material Design, Google also says that the update will now sign you into your favorite Google sites when you sign into Chrome; there are also the typical bug fixes and performance improvements.
