Google constantly updates the Chrome browser and ChromeOS, and most of the changes are usually either not user-noticeable, or cool.

But it seems like every few months, they say “hey, why don’t we change the appearance of the tabs at the top so that it looks terrible and makes it very difficult for the user, at a glance, to distinguish the active tab from all the other tabs that are open?”

At which point, I have to go looking for the fix to make Chrome go back to usable non-ugliness.

The fix usually shows up pretty quickly thanks to bloggers who understand better than I do how Chrome works under the hood.

So, ChromeOS build 71.0.3578.94 is out, and once again the “hey, why don’t we change the appearance of the tabs at the top so that it looks terrible and makes it very difficult for the user, at a glance, to distinguish the active tab from all the other tabs that are open?” crowd got their way yet again.

Waiting for the fix.
