If you have problems with screenshots enhancements (Fireshot and Lightshot worked well, Nimbus has taken the obscure topic away), but overall, if you're looking for something obscure and relaxing for your eye when using Chrome, try Deluminate.
Modify the design of the user interface in Google Chrome 69.
Tell what you want about Chrome, but over the years it has retained a pretty uniform look & feel. What do you want? However, on occasion, mostly driven by their broader impact in the operating system room, especially in the wireless environment, Google has made some style changes. Above all, they have incorporated the material design into the chrome surface, and now there is another facial lift.
The new looks I noted in the newly upgraded Chrome 69 in Kubuntu Beaver were in the new looks and I was not too lucky. Grey and faded, the ergonomic contrasts are not as good as they should be, and the new round shape looks strange. And so I decide to switch it back to the older one.
We have to scroll in the addressbar: It opens a "special" flag page where you can customize various aspect of Chrome's behaviour, even things you don't necessarily see in the default setting menus. We are interested in the section called UI layouts for the upper chrome of the browsers.
Old designs are number one. We' re changing this to 1) regular, and we' re getting this: I really don't see the changes from a pure ergonomical point of view. Also only the contrasts and colours used here. This is not a good option, and I am afraid of the wave effect this will cause in the softwares environment, as if we don't already have enough ergonomics effects.
Text contrasts are lower than before, which means they are more difficult to understand. There is a coloured backdrop to the back of the addressbar, and part of the text is almost hidden. Readability and sharpness are critical to worker productivity across a range of tabbed and application workspaces. Now, I have the latest Chrome release running on my Window 10 and then comparing the results between new and old layout.
Older (classic) layouts offer more clearness and visibility, better contrasts in the addresses bar, more dark lettering, and a better distinction between tab and back. When you don't like the aesthetic but ergonomic questionable Chrome UI look modification from 69, you can reset the original look (we don't know how long) or try one of the many available designs.
All the consolation I get is the knowing that a few Google stocks in my ownership are earning profits that I will use to cure my spirit of all this touched Desk Crash and rapid IQ100 production damage, a global crime that began around 2011 or so.
