New logos for Google Chrome and Chromium

Google released its very own browser in 2008 and since then, it has become a very popular choice, commanding about 20% of browser market share.

Anyone that has tried the new beta version of the browser may have noticed the new simplified logo which is planned to tie in nicely with the Chromium redesign too which was launched earlier this year.

We feel that the simpler form is a nice evolution; a move that other brands seem to be making too including Starbucks. The shading still gives the logo depth, but the simplicity helps define the browser and software around its roots. What do you think? Do you like the new design or prefer the old version? Is it too early for a redesign while Chrome is still fighting for a share of the browser pie?
