An early Google Chrome Web Store preview shows a ‘modern’ redesign

What you need to know

  • Google opens its door on a preview for the Chrome Web Store redesign, bringing an aesthetic similar to the Play Store.
  • While the main page removes the category sidebar, the preview’s “extensions” and “themes” pages bring it back.
  • Google hasn’t stated a timeframe for its official arrival, however, it’s looking to users and developers for feedback before doing so.

Google is working on revamping the design of its Chrome Web Store, and an early preview gives us a look at what’s to come. As spotted by 9to5Google, the new Chrome Web Store redesign is pretty similar, aesthetically, to the Play Store on mobile and desktop. The easiest to spot change is how the new Web Store fills the view of a PC’s monitor horizontally, doing away with the category sidebar.

Instead, right beneath the initial side-scrolling rotating list of extension highlights, users can find “top categories.” The page then recommends extensions based on your habits with others following the further down you go.

Hopping over into the “extensions” and “themes” pages quickly brings back that old sidebar full of categories. On these pages, Chrome’s new Web Store lists broader categories with sub-categories directly below so users can click on exactly what they’re looking for from the get-go.

Both pages offer recommendations that you may be interested in. However, unlike the extensions page, which offers a “you might like” section, the themes page forgoes such a section.

Much of the design choices made for the Chrome Web Store’s upcoming redesign are pretty standard (now) for Google. Much of it fits the theme of its Material You design language, with rounded corner boxes to boot.

The Impact of Global Outdoor LED Displays on Modern Marketing

Revolutionizing Advertising: The Impact of Global Outdoor LED Displays on Modern Marketing

The advent of global outdoor LED displays has revolutionized the advertising industry, creating a seismic shift in the way businesses market their products and services. These vibrant, dynamic displays have become a ubiquitous part of our urban landscapes, transforming the way we consume advertising content and reshaping the marketing strategies of businesses worldwide.

Outdoor LED displays offer a myriad of advantages over traditional advertising mediums. They are bright, eye-catching, and capable of displaying high-resolution images and videos that can captivate audiences and leave a lasting impression. Unlike static billboards or print ads, LED displays can be updated in real-time, allowing businesses to tailor their messages to specific times of day, weather conditions, or even current events. This flexibility and adaptability make them an incredibly effective tool for modern marketing.

The global reach of outdoor LED displays has also had a profound impact on advertising strategies. In today’s interconnected world, a display in New York can be instantly updated from a control room in London, allowing multinational corporations to coordinate their advertising campaigns across different time zones and markets. This has led to a new era of global advertising, where messages can be disseminated quickly and efficiently on a worldwide scale.

Moreover, the interactive capabilities of outdoor LED displays have opened up new avenues for customer engagement. Some displays are equipped with touch screens, motion sensors, or augmented reality technology, enabling consumers to interact with the advertisements in novel and exciting ways. This not only increases the memorability of the ad but also creates a more immersive and engaging experience for the consumer.

The rise of outdoor LED displays has also spurred innovation in the design and production of these devices. Manufacturers are continually pushing the boundaries of what
