Latest update a user-unfriendly bust
Google yet again insists on “fixing” things in Chrome that don’t need fixing. The browser’s latest (December 10, 2017) release now places bookmarks in a hard to access link in the upper right corner of the browser instead of as before where you could open up a new tab and have all your bookmarks clearly laid out in front of you. What once took one tap now takes at least three and viewing and navigating are more cumbersome than ever.
Changing a user interface just to pretend you are making it better is a sure sign of a company without a clue, desperate to show that they on top of things. Heaven knows what havoc they are letting there developers and programmers wreak on other Google offerings but if Chrome is any indication things are not looking good. Making an app less intuitive, less easy to use, is not the way to go and it is inexcusable for Google to not know this.
The days of “Do no evil” are long gone at Google. ‘Do no stupid” is the most we can hope for now and unfortunately this latest misguided “improvement” to Chrome shows no one is paying attention to that idea either anymore.
Update isn’t what I was hoping for
I’ve used Chrome religiously for a while now (pretty much since I’ve started on the iPhone trend with the 4.) and I’ve usually had a good experience with it. However, I’m not sure I’m completely sold on the new stuff. The bigger tabs are fine, it’s a bit easier to see what’s going on in each, but the bottom bar is just odd. It looks like safari now and that’s an issue, because safari looks dated. Sure, it’s easier to reach, but I feel like it’s taking up more screen space now instead of me having lots of room to maneuver, or bring up the control panel by swiping up. If I had to suggest a change, I’d say that you should have a option to have the old screen type back. Other than that, I’m happy to see that the app has really kept what works, and improved on things that aren’t exactly doing the trick anymore. The consistency of the app is probably the thing I love the most (something companies don’t seem to get APPLE)(bring back the button APPLE). Great app for everyday use with minimal to no glitching. Thanks google!<3
New design is terrible
I used to love this app it had a convenient, simple design and I could easily navigate the internet. After the new update, I can’t say any of these things about Chrome. I understand it’s an app, things will change every now and then. But this is a major change that can risk a lot of your users.
The design itself is clunky and strange. There is no more swipe to remove a tab. The toolbar at the bottom (that auto hides, which I personally hate) is ugly, takes up space, and is a downgrade from the user friendly previous version of Chrome I loved. Not to mention it looks like a carbon copy of Safari. Like someone else said in a recent review, If we had to go on the App Store and DOWNLOAD Chrome, rather than use the pre-downloaded Safari, why would you think we liked the design of Safari?
I think you should return to the old design or at least give us an option to go back with Settings. The majority of your users dislike the Safari design, therefore you shouldn’t try to make a copy of them. I will use Safari from now on, until it is updated to look better, because I might as well if your apps look almost exactly alike.
