Updates have come to billions of users faster than any other browser could afford, and developers have been helped to improve their site performance. Also, machine learning is enabling accessibility and personalized browsing experience.

Chrome’s icons have been refreshed and users will see the new changes over the next few weeks. The new changes based on Material You will focus on legibility. Color palettes have been created to compliment tab and toolbar.
