In February, it was reported that Google will perform a major surgery on Chrome using the new "Material Design 2" UI design language. However, a recent XDA report shows that "Material Design 2" is misrepresenting that Google is working on making the Chrome desktop browser more friendly to touch devices. For the desktop version, there are more and more devices such as 2-in-1 notebooks and all-in-one devices that support touch screens. Demand is growing.
It should be noted that September 2 will be the birthday of Google Chrome's 10th anniversary. Although Material Design 2 has been rejected, "Material Design refresh" is definitely to be done.
Previously on the Android version of Chrome, the appearance of the curved address bar "Omnibar" was a UI adjustment signal.
