As far as the changes to the look of Chrome for Windows go, there aren’t many at the moment. The developers have updated the design of the context menus that appear when you right-click anywhere in the browser or when you open a menu item. Rounded window corners and drop shadow effects were one of the notable design changes. Also noted is the emergence of an experimental feature, the activation of which makes the browser context menus transparent.

Microsoft recently confirmed that applications using the new design elements will not affect the performance of the operating system. According to the available data, all changes are thoroughly tested for impact on overall performance. This means that the rounded corners of the windows, redesigned menus and other innovations will not slow down the platform.
