Millions of users around the world use Google Chrome browser and the company has changed its logo, which will soon be visible to the people. It is worth noting that the company has taken such a decision for the first time in 8 years. Indeed, Chrome is changing its logo for the first time since 2014, and if you look closely, you’ll really be able to see what’s different. Alvin Hu, a designer for Google Chrome, posted a thread on Twitter showing the first look of the redesigned logo, as well as the thinking behind the subtle changes to the logo.
What was different in the new logo,
there was a shadow on the border between each color in the old logo, which has now been decided to remove. Due to this, the red, yellow and green colors present in the logo not only look more flat, but now they are also feeling lifted. The blue circle in the middle looks bigger and looks darker.
The colors in the logo look more vibrant, which is probably due to the removal of shadows by the design team. Indeed, Google’s design team found that “placing certain shades of green and red next to each other creates an unpleasant color vibration.” To fix this and make the icon “more accessible”, they decided to use very subtle gradients, although the human eye can’t even see it.
What device it will look like The new logo
The main Chrome logo (the one you click on from your dock/taskbar to access the web) will not look the same on all systems. On ChromeOS, the logo will appear more colorful to complement other system icons, while on macOS, the logo will have a smaller shadow, making it appear as though it is “popping out” from the Dock. Meanwhile, Windows 10 and 11 versions have a more dramatic gradient, so that it can fit in with the style of other Windows icons. Hu says that if you use Chrome Canary (the developer version of Chrome) you should start seeing the new icon now, but it will roll out to everyone else in the next few months.
There are also new icons for the beta and developer versions of the
Chrome logo. There are also some new icons for the beta and developer versions of the Chrome logo, with the most dramatic change being the blueprint-style icon for beta apps on iOS. Hu also noted that the design team experimented with a white line that serves as a border between each color, but found that it made the overall icon smaller, potentially among other Google apps. made it hard to recognize Since 2008 to present, the chrome logo is slowly becoming simpler. What started as a shiny, three-dimensional logo has been transformed into a 2D symbol of modernity.
