Google is bringing a new extension menu for Chrome

With an aim to improve the user’s experience, Google is testing a new extension menu for Chrome browsers. The revamped menu will be located on the toolbar and contain a drop-down list of all the installed extensions on the browser.

Users who are interested in testing the new menu can install the Chrome Canary build by going to chrome://flags and selecting the experiment titled 'Extensions Toolbar Menu'.

Once the new extension is enabled, a new icon in the shape of a jigsaw puzzle piece will appear on the toolbar. Click on it to see a list of the installed extensions.

To declutter the toolbar, simply unpin each of the extension icons by right-clicking on them and selecting the option Unpin. Doing this will remove all the extensions from the toolbar and accessible only from the puzzle-shaped drop-down menu.

With the new menu, accessing a particular extension will be more convenient. Simply click on the 3-dot menu located on the right of each extension icon to open a context menu of its properties.

Google has not yet announced an official release date for the new feature but since it is part of the Chrome 76 Canary build, we can expect them both to release together.
