As it happens increasing the cadence of isn’t the only real change Google has planned because of its browser. In a tweet spotted by 9to5Google (via XDA Developers ), Chrome design head Alex Ainslie detailed a fresh feature that means it is easier to try any experimental functionality that Google is focusing on. Of this week as, the browser’s Canary version carries a beaker icon where one can enable experimental features, along with send feedback to the Chrome team.
👩🔬 Hopefully to assemble more feedback about @googlechrome updates as they’re in development. If you are using Canary today (and soon Dev and Beta) you’ll notice just a little beaker on the toolbar that means it is easier to try new stuff and share suggestions on how it will evolve. pic.twitter.com/doPLzJbnRW

During the past, checking out experiments in Chrome meant enabling flags. That made them tricky to gain access to if you didn’t know very well what you’re doing. In addition, it wasn’t easy to understand instantly which ones you’d enabled. Ainslie said Google is adding the menu to get more feedback on updates as they’re in development. To that final end, the beaker icon shall make its solution to the developer and beta versions of Chrome aswell. That means you will not need to use Chrome’s least stable release to see what Google has waiting for you for users.
