Google chrome icons change?

Hello, I just had this problem of Google chrome icons changing. Why is this? Also, Google chrome is VERY laggy I can't watch videos smoothly but Firefox works just fine.

Thanks,
-Rick

The icon change is a new feature with Google chrome version 21 as for your videos try to disable or remove some extensions and restart Google chrome after your disable/remove and try watching a video.

Well thankfully the lag is starting to go away, but the icon on the left... is that an error? Also, is there a way to downgrade to Google chrome 20?

No that's not a error it's just a new icon Chrome uses you can see all icons here

That's annoying I liked the old icon better. Bye the way the browser still lags early in video and stops lagging when the video is done loading.

do you mean the video keeps buffering or are you trying to multi task while watching a video?

I try to multitask videos but even when I don't multitask it buffers but the thing is I have pretty good internet it's 20-35 MBPS and once I got 57.75 MBPS on Wifi.

Just let the video buffer me Personally it buffers faster on 720P or 1080P HD Try switching the Quality of the videos and pause it and let it buffer have you tried removing some extensions in Google chrome like i asked and if you have any extensions left post them as a screen shot

In this situation it is better to use Firefox, isn't it ?

Uninstall Google Chrome, and reinstall it again, that would be the easiest way to fix those icons issue.
