Google has released version 96 of its popular Chrome browser and this time all those who use Windows 11 can benefit from one of the Chrome experimental features to make that the aesthetics of the browser are integrated better with the new Microsoft operating system.

With rounded corners for the main menu, the contextual menus or the bookmarks bar, activating these effects and changes in the interface is a very simple process to carry out and now we are going to see the steps that we must follow.

The charm of the curve

New design

Appearance with rounded corners

In Windows 11 one of the novelties in terms of the interface has been the arrival of rounded corners that create a more pleasing appearance to the eye. Some corners that gradually reach all the applications of the system and the last example we have seen with the Your Phone app.

Curveless Design

No rounded corners

In order to achieve a visual change in the Google browser that adapts it to the aesthetics of Windows 11, the first thing we have to confirm is that we have Chrome 96 downloaded and installed. It is very easy to know the installed version and we only have to access the menu of the three dots and then in “Help” click on “About Google Chrome”. In case of not having the latest version, we can download it from this link.

Once we are assured that we are using Chrome 96, we must access the window to search for the experimental function. Just type “Chrome: // flags” in the browser bar and once inside use the search engine writing the term “Windows 11”. At that point there is only “Restart the browser”.

Enabled

From here we will use a Chrome in which we will see how the corners become rounded, in the purest Windows 11 style. This does not mean that this change can also be used on Windows 10-based computers.

For now we do not know when these changes will be reflected in the stable version of Chrome so that it reaches all users. Hopefully Google will still take some time to polish bugs and add more improvements.
