This weekend, traces of a "Supervised user" mode appeared in Chrome Canary, the early, oft-unstable preview build for the popular web browser.

Chrome has long supported multiple user profiles, but these supervised accounts—as first noticed by BrowserFame—add a more kid-friendly twist to things, as they're managed by a master account rather than being a separate account entirely.

Or, at least that's what the splash screen that appears after you've created a supervised user says. Chrome Preview Now Showing "Supervised User" Mode [pcworld.com]
