Chrome 59 brings design changes in Settings menu
In the previous versions of Chrome, such as Chrome 52 for Mac and Chrome 53 for Windows, Google introduced Material design while keeping the Setting menu unchanged. The Chrome 59 brings substantial changes in the Setting menu with a whole new design. Google’s Chromium team had been testing this new layout for quite some time. It brings a visible change in the Setting menu by keeping basic settings still intact.
