Enable ‘Material Design’ design on all Chrome elements

For some years, Google is trying to popularize the design lines of ‘Material Design’, which were initially designed to give a more attractive look to Android, but have gradually been shed in virtually all products of the company. In fact, last year they announced that they would also take them to their desktop browser.

To this day, when you run Chrome on your Windows computer, GNU / Linux or macOS you can already enjoy some dyes of this style in your browser. But it is a design that is still in beta, and many of the sections and options that are being prepared, at least eight today, are disabled by default.

Elements like the Chrome settings menu already have ‘Material Design’ ready, but to enable them you have to tangle in the browser’s kernel options. Today we are going to teach you how to do it to enable the new design of all elements of Chrome, even in those who still have time to mature.

But before you start you have to understand that if these elements are not enabled by default it is precisely for that reason, because they are not mature. This means that they may not work properly all the time , and that you may experience some other bug when performing tasks with the elements in which they are present.

Enable ‘Material Design’ in Chrome

The first thing to do is to enter the Chrome Experiments section , which you can get by typing chrome: // flags / into your address bar. By doing so you will see a warning notification that warns you that experiments experiments can be dangerous because your security and privacy could be unexpectedly compromised with some of them.

Once in this menu of experiments, now press Ctrol + F to launch the internal Chrome finder. In it write the term Material Design so that you highlight all the experiments that include it. In the browser window you will have an up and down arrows to navigate them, and all you have to do is activate them. Here is the list of the eight available:

  • Material Design on all other elements of the browser’s native user interface : Chrome has been adopting elements of this design since last summer, but this option will add to its default theme small extra elements like dialog boxes, information bubbles, and things by the style.
  • Enable Material Design User Manager : As the name of the option says, add the design lines to the Manage Chrome Users menu. Click on the top right of your username, and you’ll see the option to manage them. The pop-up menu that comes out when you click is the one that is modified.
  • Use the user menu of Material Design Mac, Windows, Linux : And of course, if you can enable this design in the user manager, you can also make them in the menu that I just comment. The option will look especially if you have several users in the browser and you usually change from one to another with assiduity.
  • Enable the Material Design Policies page Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS: This experiment modifies the appearance of the Chrome policy page, the one you can access by typing chrome: // policy in the address bar. Exactly, it does nothing more than modify that particular page.
  • Enable Material Design suggestions Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS : When the browser shows you a message informing you of a problem, this feedback will arrive in a window designed now with the appearance of Material Design.
  • Enable Material Design history Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS : Although the history already uses this design, with this experiment we will activate the small changes and improvements that are made to it.
  • Enable the configuration of Material Design Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS : Another of the changes that you will notice among the ones that you can realize. The new Google layout will be applied to the Google Settings menu . It will be easier to use, with more focused and much more organized options.
  • Enable extensions of Material Design Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS : Every time you enter the page of extensions to manage them, now they will look much more simple and colorful. In fact, this new design will not only make your information much easier to read, but will also simplify enabling and disabling them.
  • Material Design Security Information Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS : And we end up with another option that will not surprise you too much. In fact, you can not directly enable it, since it will only change the animations of the information page on this design.

In the box of each of these eight experiments will be marked the options Defaultor Disabled. So, all you have to do is change the status box of each of them to set it to Enabled. When doing so, at the bottom you will see a button that suggests you restart the browser, once you have enabled all the options you can go to press it.

The last warnings

As we said at the outset, enabling Chrome experiments can be dangerous to your browser and your privacy. We have not looked at all the experiments, only the Material Design, so we advise against activating others if you do not know exactly what they can do. In fact, even those of Material Design, being still in Beta, may be unstable and occasionally buggy.

That is why, once the design is tested, if you want it to prime security and stability above all you should consider disabling them and wait until Google launches them by default. You can do this in the same experiment window by clicking the Reset all button to its default state that you can find at the top right.

And if you decide to stick with these options, you also have to know that Google can deactivate them and eliminate them without prior notice . In fact, until recently it was possible to activate the design in the bookmark manager, something that to this day is not possible anymore, although perhaps later on activate it again.
