The long-anticipated Material design changes to Chrome are nearing the finish line and are now expected to launch April 8 with Chrome 51.




With it, you can expect a translucent top bar, a tab bar that adapts to the colours (or video) behind it on OS X, an all-black Incognito mode (which supports themes), fresh developer tools that allow for a dark mode and appearance tweaking, among other changes. Yet more may come with the development time between now and launch.
