Why Change the Google Chrome icon? Google says here is why

Since Chrome is all about making your web experience as easy and clutter-free as possible, we refreshed the Chrome icon to better represent these sentiments.

As Google Chrome expands the reach to Chrome OS notebooks, develop an amazing browser with useful Chrome extensions, and engage a whole new community by developing Chrome videos, they surely need a new brand image aligned with the simplicity of Google.

    That was 3D, this one is 2D. So it seems it is easier to use.

    i can live with it, but it doesn’t antialias well at the default windows icon size.

    The old icon was great, cool, trendy, etc.

    I remember when Microsoft lost their way too.
