About a week ago I realized that my Google Chrome title bar was gray.

Does anyone know how to fix this UI bug for Google Chrome [Version 51.0.2704.103 (64-bit)]?

After selecting the 'Use system title bar and borders' option, I still have a gray tab bar (instead of the elementary os light gray)

I am running elementary OS 0.3.2 Freya (64-bit)

Here is a screenshot of the title bar:

Thanks to Paul, I was able to find the setting to use the "Classic Theme":


Unfortunately, my OCD could not handle the slight difference shown between the title bar and the tab bar in the screenshot above.

That's when I installed the Freya Theme for Google:


I prefer this one because it is perfect.

I could link to this, but I need at least 10 repuation to post more than 2 links, and I am the worst.

  • Chrome 54 on Loki seems to be much better sorted.

I changed this by going into settings>appearance and then clicking the tab that says "Use Classic Theme". Hope this helps.


Classic blue theme is quite acceptable solution. It is not as classic as it is named, but it has another colors for active and inactive window, at least.
