All of this leads up to today's release of Chrome 69. It includes Google's new Material Design theme, with rounded tabs and a whiter appearance. The update for Android enables the Modern Design flag that has been mostly-finished for months. Interestingly, the iOS app now has the address bar on the bottom of the screen, just like the 'Chrome Home' UI that was in development for a year on Android but ultimately cancelled.
The address bar now displays answers as you type, so you might find what you're looking for without even loading a search result. Also, the New Tab Page can now be personalized with custom backgrounds and shortcuts. Other new features include a password generator, improved autofill, and a 'Switch to tab' button if you try to visit a page you already have open.
Chrome 69 will start rolling out today for desktop platforms. It usually takes a few days for the Android version to be released, and we'll have a full post about it then.
