Brandon GiesingÂ send me an email with Â a screenshot of the new settings page for Chrome. This new UI is more clean and “fluid” I don’t know if I used the correct word, but take a look at the screencast below and let me know what you think.
This is available on the latest Chrome Dev version. I did check the latest chromium daily build to see if there is any change there, but it looked similar there too. So, I am not expecting any radical change to this new UI soon before it’s pushed to the stable version.
There are only two main sections in the new UI. “Settings” and then “Extensions”. The “settings” page opens up the basic settings options, and you can click on “advanced” or “under the hood” for more options. “Advanced Settings” opens up as a pop-up page. Additional settings from there opens as a new layer on top of it, giving a consistent UX. Here is a screenshot of those “layers”!!
I felt the new UI more clean, but over simplified. It doesn’t look attractive but feels great when you use it. Considering this is the first version of this new UI, we should probably see more change in upcoming versions.
What do you think of this new UI?
