After adding a new interface to the Profile Picker, the Chromium team is now updating Chrome’s manage profile page by bringing the custom theme generator available on the new tab page in the customize menu. While the current interface allows us to assign a profile name and choose a profile picture, in addition to these, the new design includes a color picker and gives the user the ability to create a desktop shortcut on Windows.
