hidden "Golden Coloured Logo" in the latest Developer build of Google Chrome. Frankly speaking we did not like this Golden Google Chrome logo much, but you can try getting it on your Computer and see if you like it.

This golden icon is from the Canary build (this icon used to be Yellow in the past) and this icon is stored in the executable file for the regular version of Google Chrome too! You can also download all Google Chrome Icons from here.
