Google has been working on a revamp for Chrome since October 2016, called ‘Chrome Home.’ It launched the version in March and then again updated it in August. Google released it with Chrome 62, but the wide majority of users are still using the old design by default.
Now, Google has rolled out Chrome 63 today for Windows, Mac, and Linux with some useful improvements and few changes to the in-development ‘Chrome Home’ interface. The new addition shows Google is giving the finishing touches to Chrome Home.
Chrome 63 comes with dynamic module imports, Device Memory API, async iterators and generators among other developer features. It also features a number of security enhancements for enterprise users.
There are several flags in Chrome 63 that serves new exciting features and developments to users. ‘Chrome Home Promo,’ a new flag indicates an item named ‘You’re using the new Chrome.’ After tapping the item you will find a popup which explains the new interface with a switch to disable it entirely.
Google has included a new flag called ‘Chrome Opt-out Snackbar’ (#enable-chrome-home-opt-out-snackbar) in Chrome 63. If anyone selects to deactivate the Chrome Home UI with this switch, the users will be asked to take a survey of this new flag.
When Google will decide to release Chrome Home to everyone, users will get both of these flags. But for now, it’s not clear yet when Google will roll out the switch.
