Disabling chrome material design on mac

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:

  1. Visit chrome://flags (sadly, links to that page don’t work, so you have to copy-paste it yourself)
  2. Look for the option Material Design in the browser’s top chrome and set it to Non Material
  3. Restart chrome, and profit from your new old look.
