Hot! Google Chrome Project is Simply Beautiful

A user by the name of Paweł Durczok has started a personal Google Chrome project to add a minimal and simplistic feel to the overall design of the popular web browser. He states that his inspiration for starting this project came because he has always loved the Chrome browser but has not loved the way the application looks.

The author has stated that this project was started for windows and it still includes many flaws.

Unfortunately due to the lack of time I wasn’t able to prepare more screens and the design no doubt contains many mistakes :) .

Windows version.

Still, it was a fun personal project.

Sadly this project quickly became a concept as it was benched by the author. He stated that he has no experience in UI design and that he finds this to be unconventional for every day use. With everything he has to say aside I still love the look of this browser and would even pay money for a design like this.

What are your opinions on this project? Would you like a minimal and simple web browser like this or have you grown to love the way Google Chrome or any browser looks? I personally use Safari simply because I know it looks better than Chrome, not because it’s a better browser.
