Google released version 96 of its popular Chrome browser and this time anyone using Windows 11 can take advantage of one of Chrome’s experimental features to better integrate the browser’s aesthetic with that of Microsoft’s new operating system. . .
With rounded corners for the main menu, context menus or bookmarks bar, activating these effects and changes in the interface is a very simple process to do and now we will see the steps we need to follow.
The charm of the curve
Appearance with rounded corners
In Windows 11, one of the new features in terms of interface was the arrival of rounded corners which create a more pleasing appearance. Some corners that gradually reach all the applications of the system and the last example we saw with the Your Phone application.
No rounded corners
In order to get a visual change in the Google browser that adapts it to the aesthetics of Windows 11, the first thing we need to confirm is that we have downloaded and installed Chrome 96. It is very easy to know which version is installed and all you have to do is access the three dots menu then in “Help” click on “About Google Chrome”. If you don’t have the latest version, we can download it from this link.
Once we are sure that we are using Chrome 96, we need to go to the window to find the experimental feature. Just type “Chrome: // flags” in the browser bar and once inside use the search engine typing in the term “Windows 11”. At this point, the only thing to do is to “Restart the browser”.
From there, we’ll use a Chrome where we’ll observe how the corners round off, in true Windows 11 style. That doesn’t prevent this change from being used on Windows 10 computers either.
At this time, we don’t know when these changes will be reflected in the stable version of Chrome so that it reaches all users. Hopefully Google will take some more time to fix the bugs and add other improvements.
