According to a source for The Verge, the redesign was made for the times when "the beveled logo may not display well — such as on printed banners or other corporate use cases." In fact, the redesigned logo has already been pulled from the Chrome Beta APK. So, even though we liked the redesign, it looks like it won't be replacing the current design in the near future.

Flattening trend is spreading. Looks not bad, but what so special about all this flat "design" ?

It represents a shift in thought from the days when 3D designs and textures were all the rage to the current minimalist norm of "simpler is better." Companies are focusing on streamlined and simple user experiences, and they want their logos to reflect this.

seems like everyone is going for the minimalistic, flat look (apple, microsoft, miui, and now google). it's not a bad look, but idk why so it's trending. it's seems a bit simplistic to me, a little too boring. wouldn't be suprised if the major os after kitkat changes it to all flat, minimalistic (and then all the apple herd will get outraged and say how google copied.) i believe firefox recently changed their logo a little while back to a more minimal, flat look also.

I think they had to wait on switching logos. something about Fisher Price having a patent on flat plain logos. *sigh* http://asklogo.com/images/F/fi

I\'m always using non-skin on windows xp/7. Simple and light. But on my android, I\'m using next launcher. The 3D effect is flat yet had depth feels. I like the windows like more a piece of paper floating, but for icon, I like somewhat of real look, like book opened, folded, or embossed or engraved.
