Google Chrome has a new logo, and it wants to make sure everyone knows.
Those of you updating to the latest Chrome builds (in this case, 11.0.696.12 dev, running on Mac OS X 10.7) will find that the new version comes with a bold new icon. We’re not sure if we like it just yet, because it definitely takes some getting used to.

The new one is distinctly more 2d, less shiny, and far more abstract. They say that’s the natural progression of logos, but Chrome and its logo certainly haven’t been around since the 60s for us to be discussing that.
Us? We can’t stop seeing a big, colorful ‘9’ whenever we glance at the icon.
And (after the jump), here’s the new Chrome logo in super-size. [Click it on it to load the image itself at full resolution]
