I just updated my Chrome for Mac at the version 52, which includes the new Material Design.
Well, I don’t like it at all. Feels way too “Windows 10”-y on my Mac. Also, I’m not very keen on design changes, especially when it’s only for the sake of change.
In any case, there is a way to disable this new look:
chrome://flags(sadly, links to that page don’t work, so you have to copy-paste it yourself)
- Look for the option Material Design in the browser’s top chrome and set it to Non Material
- Restart chrome, and profit from your new old look.
