In fact, Google was neither short nor lazy dwarf your logo in chrome to make more room for Discover.
And one thing is very clear, when a company is able to reduce the size of its logo it is because it knows that it will have an effect so that Discover, the news feed optimized according to our interests, take more relevance from your browser.
Find out in the soup
Starting with Chrome 54, Discover arrived in the browser, although we have seen other latest related news so that it becomes one of its essential parts
And although it is not yet in its final version, it may be apply the ‘Start Surface’ flag in its various variations to see how the new Chrome tab will finally be.
- We paste this selection into the browser URL:
- chrome: // flags / # enable-start-surface
- We select “Single Surface V2 Finale” from the cascade menu.
- When activating it, we need to restart Chrome.
- We will do this several times until the applied change is observed.
Keep in mind that we need at least version 90 of Chrome, although for our part we did not have the possibility to verify that the changes are applied as do the screenshots taken by Android Police.
As you can see, apart drastically reduce the logo from Google, the number of lines for shortcuts to our favorite websites has also been reduced. Instead of two lines, only one now appears.
In fact, the icons for each of these websites can be moved sideways so that you don’t miss a thing, although we’ll only have 5 visible. Of course he has increased from 8 to 12 the accesses.
When adding a new Chrome tab will convert to a url format to hide the feed and Discover icons. Clicking on the home button will launch a new tab.
The funny thing is that this “ flag ” will disappear in version 100 of Chrome, so for now it will remain disabled. We’ll see if Google finally decides to keep this new visual format for the new tabs.
