Not everyone was a fan of Chrome’s Material Design refresh when it debuted in September with the release of version 69, but there was some good news, in that users could revert to the old theme by visiting the chrome://flags page and modifying a setting. Unfortunately, Google has incited the wrath of those who hate mobile-first, eye-searing UIs by removing that option this month to force its adoption. The company’s engineers are advising complainants to switch to another browser, as those who downgrade to an older version to get the old UI back are opening themselves up to security risks. For the past two to three weeks, social media sites like Reddit and Twitter have been flooded with complaints about Chrome's new UI and users wailing about not being able to switch back to the old style. Most of the complaints that Chrome users are bringing forward are legitimate. It is incredibly harder to find a desired tab on the tab bar with the new UI, compared to the old one. Furthermore, Chrome's new UI also broke users' ability to mute tabs, which is an inconvenience of its own.
