Chrome tests new look on Android; see how to use

Google is testing a new look for the Chrome tab switcher on Android. The main change is that the pages are arranged horizontally instead of overlapping. With the modification, the browser starts to display fewer tabs, making the interface leaner. On the other hand, users who often keep many websites open will find it more difficult to switch between tabs.

In the following tutorial, learn how to enable the new look for the Chrome tab switcher on your phone. The feature is only available for the Google system, and it is necessary to use the Canary version of the browser to test the new interface.
