    Well, it never looked native on KDE but it could be mitigated by using oxygen-gtk (or Qtcurve GTK) and letting chromium use the GTK theme. Now context menus look quite shite under KDE, and it's dreadful when using a dark desktop theme.

    Here's screenshots under KDE :

    - now : http://i.imgur.com/sNW3Erv.jpg
    - now with dark theme : http://i.imgur.com/1xDMyij.jpg

    But at least it feels *much* smoother and faster on my laptop and its ATI HD3650 using the opensource radeon driver, as long as you disable the gpu blacklisting.

    This version is having issues with system borders and title checked in ubuntu 14.04 ambiance theme. When the window is maximized it offsets the window a bit to the right. Works as it should when system borders and title are unchecked.

    Apply new theme

    I am a Gnome Shell user and I applied the Gnome Shell theme with Version 35. You get themes from the Chrome store. I am running the open source Radeon driver on Debian Sid. Mine is smooth and neat looking and matches the rest of the system thanks to the theme.

    Blacklists are not always immediately updated, read perfect, to the latest software versions when new programs and drivers or new versions of existing programs and drivers come out.

    A little off-topic, I apologize. But, does anyone know how to revert from this version of Chrome to an older one with NPAPI support? The only XBMC addon for viewing Amazon Prime content that is functional now relies on Chrome to play content through the NPAPI Flash (the built-in PPAPI Flash is missing the necessary DRM code). This is an absolutely necessary piece for my Linux/XBMC-based HTPC, and I blindly updated to this version without remembering that they removed the NPAPI support a couple versions ago.

    Icons on the bookmarks bar no longer follow GTK Styling, same with the text.

    Shame, I liked that.

    I am also running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS but with open source Radeon driver I am experiencing some lag and jumpy behaviour with the scrollbar when I drag it with mouse (does not happen when scrolling with wheel on mouse), dont know whether the drivers are to blame. Everything else works perfectly and I agree with your comment on Firefox being left in the dust, I use it as a second browser for a few tasks and it is definitely slower than Chrome, and it lags when faced with significant load of heavy websites (lots of images and javascript), while Chrome works normally under the same load, the only improvement is the new UI in Firefox, it looks quite nice but speed did not improve, now if only Chrome would get better icons it would be nearly perfect.

    I'm impressed

    I'm using open source Radeon drivers (Radeon HD 5750), and other graphic cards may not see such a difference, but it's day and night compared to previous versions (and Firefox!).
    It feels so smooth now, i'm really impressed!
