Google introduces a new animated permission prompt UI for the Chrome browser. The new permission prompt that Chrome displays when a website asks for permission to know your location, use your camera or microphone, or send you notifications are less annoying and easier to ignore.

The new permission prompt appears in the address bar rather than the old fly-out window. And most permission chips only show their full messages when you click on them, so they’re less annoying and much easier to ignore than the current pop-up prompts.

The majority of people usually ignore permission requests from websites. So to avoid permission requests that are generally unnecessary for the vast majority of Chrome users and improve the browsing experience, Google introduces the new permission chips. It is now an animated chip UI, which appears next to the lock icon whenever permission is requested.
