Oh, and here’s something even cooler. With the new update, Chrome now has a fancy design material called Mica. It basically gives Chrome a fresh look!

You know how Windows 11 added Mica to some apps? Well, now it’s in Chrome too! This makes the title bar in Chrome look really cool. You can even see a picture of it in this article.

Microsoft, the company behind Windows 11, says that adding Mica to apps like Chrome can actually make you more productive. And the best part? It won’t slow down your computer at all!

If you want to try out the Mica feature in Chrome, here’s what you need to do:

Once you’ve done that, you’ll see the cool Mica effect in Chrome’s tab strip and title bar. And when you hover over your open tabs, you’ll even notice a new animation effect!

Just keep in mind that the Mica feature is only available on Windows 11 version 22H2 and above. But who knows, maybe Google will bring it to other versions in the future!
