Linux gets better Chrome App Launcher

Google has issued Chrome 36 updates for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android users. The new version is mostly a maintenance release, making stability, performance, and security fixes. It does however implement several cosmetic changes across desktop platforms, for instance improving rich notifications with a "flatter" look, and giving Incognito mode a new tab page (below) that's cleaner and easier to read. Likewise, the Chrome App Launcher for Linux has been revamped.

The Android app has gained better text rendering on websites that aren't optimized for mobile, and once again displays doodles on new tab pages. The updates can be downloaded via Google's website, the desktop browsers' internal update features, and in the case of Android, Google Play.
