As per a latest screenshot shared by , Google is now testing the material design it introduced in I/0 2014, on the Chrome OS.

The first draft, as shared by the Google evangelist, consists in a “collection of windows with some simple window management”. Along with sharing the first draft, Beaufort also shared instructions on how to follow the “work in progress”. Here’s what he had to say on the instructions :

By simply checking out the chromium source code and compiling the convenient “athena_main” target with ninja -C out/Release athena_main, you’ll be able to follow the Work In Progress.

The screenshot, on the first notice, will clearly remind you og Google Chrome’s current interface on Android devices. Several windows, neatly stacked together, is what Google plans to introduce in its next version of Chrome OS.

Reports about this new design had surfaced up earlier also, when snippets of Athena codes were found on the Chromium project. The rumours also suggested a touchscreen interface, split screen mode and touch gestures.
