Google Adds Touch Friendly Features To The Latest Chrome (Beta)

 5:24 pm on Aug 5, 2013 (gmt 0)

Google appears to be readying a number of touch-friendly features for its Chrome browser. In the latest nightly Canary build, a new slide-to-navigate feature has been added that lets you swipe left or right to go backwards and forwards on web pages. It's almost identical to the same feature found within Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8.

Pinch-to-zoom also appears to be something Google is experimenting with too, thanks to an "enable pinch scale" option in the Chrome Canary flags. It's more experimental than the swipe navigation, but it works as you'd expect by zooming in websites using your fingers. On Windows 8, Google is also supporting the onscreen keyboard fully in the desktop version by displaying it when you tap the address bar or text boxes.link [theverge.com]
