Google reveals its brand new Chrome icon “in 2D”

Google just announced that its lovely red, green and yellow Chrome icon got a redesign.

The makeover features a flat, 2D version of its predecessor. Since Google is “all about making your web experience as easy and clutter-free as possible,” its new icon embodies this ethos, reflecting a “quicker, lighter, easier” icon for all.

Collectively, Google says it explored many variations, trying the icon in several different contexts and refining it along the way. The browser icon is certainly simpler and easier to recreate, which is one of Google’s aims.

For Chrome users, you’ll see this latest icon reflected in the coming weeks.
