For over a 12 months now, Google has been running on an overhaul of Chrome’s interface on Android, referred to as ‘Chrome House.’ It moved the cope with bar to the ground of the display, and pulling up at the cope with bar would expose an up to date New Tab Web page. In spite of it being most commonly in a position for free up, Google canned it previous this month for causes unknown.

In the most recent builds of Chrome Canary, the flag to allow Chrome House has been renamed to ‘Chrome Duplex’ (#enable-chrome-home-bottom-nav-labels). In different phrases, the ground cope with bar interface has been got rid of fully. In this day and age, many of the adjustments from Chrome House aren’t within the Duplex UI, together with the rounded components and brighter design.

The ‘Chrome Duplex’ interface

The one distinction between Duplex and the standard Chrome UI is a bar at the backside of the display. Swiping up at the bar unearths the New Tab Web page, very similar to swiping up on Chrome House’s cope with bar. That is very a lot a work-in-progress, and I am certain there might be a variety of adjustments within the weeks and months forward.
