Google Chrome is testing a Floating Action Button (FAB) for opening new tabs.
FABs are already used in apps like Gmail and Google Maps for primary actions.

Google Chrome is poised to embrace a new design element called the Floating Action Button (FAB). FABs have been a staple of Google’s Material Design language, appearing in essential apps like Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Keep. Now, Chrome is poised to join this list with a useful new button.

According to Google, a FAB is “a high-emphasis button that lets the user perform a primary action in an application.” It’s typically positioned at the bottom right corner of the screen and promotes a single, focused action. In apps like Google Keep, it’s used to create new notes, while in Google Maps, it centers the map on the user’s location.
