Chrome Beta scores an eye-pleasing Android L-like animation
Chrome's playground for new features, Chrome beta, has already received some of the Material Design goodness. The most recent update to the browser brought it even closer to the Android L style, at least in the design compartment - it is now employing a beautiful and smooth animation for its overflowing menu. The animation falls perfectly in line with Google's latest design principles for Android, the ones that will come along with Android L pretty soon.

Driven by the motto that “motion provides meaning”, the new overflow animation stretches from right to left and expands in a rather smooth fashion, providing users with a clear answer of two questions: “What is this thing and where did it come from?”. This animation is but a teaser about all the interface goodies that will grace the design of most of Google's own apps once Android L decides to show up.

Apart from the visual refinements, Chrome Beta has received a number of stability improvements and bug fixes. Then again, we are talking about a beta version, so these minor updates are a pretty common occurrence, but once in a while the app receives some handy and useful features. The Android L-style animation will most probably arrive on the mobile version of Chrome in the not-so-distant future. We are eagerly waiting.
