Chrome’s default scrollbars (non-overlay) will also have a modern look that matches Windows 11’s Fluent design system.

Chrome's default scrollbars (non-overlay) will also have a modern look that matches Windows 11's Fluent design system.

As I explained in this post, Microsoft is working on implementing Fluent 'overlay scrollbars' in Chrome, for those who don't know, 'overlay scrollbars' are the ones that remain hidden (or in a minimal mode) until the pointer enters the scrollbar area:

Overlay scrollbars.

Currently you can enable them with this flag

As I said above, Microsoft will implement the Fluent design system in these 'overlay scrollbars', but Chrome's default scrollbars (non-overlay) will also receive this Fluent design system, and Microsoft engineers have already made the first code changes in Blink:

[Fluent Scrollbars] Implement initial code changes in Blink for Fluent non-overlay scrollbars.

The CL adds initial implementation for Fluent non-overlay scrollbars in Blink.

Here I show Chrome's default scrollbars (non-overlay) before and after the code changes made in Blink:

Microsoft has already implemented this Fluent design system in Edge's default scrollbars (non-overlay) and this is what they look like:

Edge's Fluent non-overlay scrollbars.

Chrome's default scrollbars are expected to look the same or similar to Edge's in the future.

ICYMI: It will soon be possible to set Chrome as the default browser with a single click.

And Chrome's WINDOW FRAME CONTEXT MENU finally gets dark mode.
