Support for theme-color in Chrome 39 for Android

theme-color-ss-9950fd13a0c52b32b6bd580309d55a6bStarting in version 39 of Chrome for Android on Lollipop, you’ll now be able to use the theme-color meta tag to set the toolbar color—this means no more Seattle gray toolbars! The syntax is pretty simple: add a meta tag to your page’swith the name=”theme-color”, and set the content to any valid CSS color.

For example, to set the background to your favorite color or blue (cyan):

<meta name="theme-color" content="#0080FF">

In addition, Chrome will show beautiful high-res favicons when they’re provided. Chrome for Android picks the highest res icon that you provide, and I recommend providing a 192×192px PNG file. For example:

<link rel="icon" sizes="192x192" href="nice-highres.png">
