Google’s Chromium team have released a stable version of Chrome 59 for its Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop users brings with much emphasis on security fixes (over 30 security fixes have been made), and one notable addition is the Material design makeover for the Settings menu.

According to reports by NDTV news, the Chrome Settings menu had been in testing for quite a while, and its now visible in the stable version once you update to the latest version.

The slick material design brings a whole new look with the same basic settings still in place. There’s a new blue action bar for search, and a navigation menu that lets you jump to important categories that pops-up from the side.

While for Mac users, it brings support for native notifications, and support for animated PNG format as well.

According to 9to5Mac reports, the revamped Chrome also brings a new tool called Headless Chromium; aimed at running automated testing and for server environments where a visible UI isn’t needed. However, this tools have been made available on Mac and Linux, with a Windows implementation ought to wait a little bit longer.

Editor’s Note: Chrome v59 is rolling our gradually and you can also check manually by clicking the menu icon, navigating to Help > About Chrome, and see if the latest version has arrived.
