It turns out that increasing the cadence to is not the only change Google has planned for its browser. In a tweet discovered by 9to5Google (via XDA developers), Chrome design head Alex Ainslie detailed a new feature that makes it easier to try out experimental functionality that Google is working on. Starting this week, the browser’s Canarian version includes a cup icon where you can enable experimental features and send feedback to the Chrome team.
Hope We hope to gather more feedback on @googlechrome updates as they evolve. If you use Canary today (and soon Dev and Beta), you̵7;ll notice a small beaker on the toolbar that makes it easier to try new things and share suggestions on how to evolve. pic.twitter.com/doPLzJbnRW

Previously, trying experiments in Chrome meant activating flags. It made them difficult to access if you did not know what you were doing. It was also not easy to see for a moment which ones you had activated. Ainslie said Google is adding the menu to collect more feedback on updates as they are under development. For this purpose, the cup icon will also make its way to the developer and beta versions of Chrome. That means you do not have to use Chrome at least stable release to see what Google has in store for users.
