Google is convenient but a feast for the eyes it is not, which is why the company has now released new themes by leading fashion designers and other artists to 'beautify' its Chrome browser.

The new masks include city landscapes by Donna Karan, Matthew Williamson's signature peacock feathers, the animal print that Dolce & Gabbana are known for, and a more romantic floral theme by Oscar de la Renta.

Trend label PPQ opted for a more minimal design with white dots on black ground, Mulberry's proposal is a vision of autumnal trees, and Vivienne Westwood's is a graphic theme in blue tones.

Other contributors include leading artists and designers such as Jeff Koons, Karim Rashid, and Jenny Holzer as well as car manufacturer Porsche and textile brand Cath Kidston.
