Google Chrome is not the most customization-friendly browser (we are looking at you, Vivaldi), but it offers a fair share of options to make the browsing experience a little more personal. You can apply various themes and switch between dark and light modes. It appears that in future updates, Chrome will offer its users more personalization options.
