Chrome Beta for Android update brings users much-needed new features
The team of developers behind the Chrome Beta web browser for Android has just rolled out a new software update that you would be keen to look into, primarily if you have found the lack of certain search bar-related features in previous versions quite disappointing. The latest iteration of Chrome Beta for Android, which currently sits at version 27, offers a few new features that stand to improve the overall user-experience greatly.
According to a post on the official Google Chrome Releases blog, the latest Chrome Beta for Android update adds fullscreen on phones, allowing users to “hide” the browser toolbar simply by scrolling down a web page. It now offers tablet users tab history as well, which can be accessed easily by doing a long press on the back button.
According to the full changelog, other new features include client-side certificate support and an improved omnibox that retains search queries that have been typed in instead of replacing the same with URL search results after a user hits Enter. There are a number of minor issues as well, such as occasional slowness when it comes to typing on text fields and opening tabs.
To find out whether this version of Chrome Beta for Android is right for you, then spend a few minutes testing it out yourself by first downloading it from Google Play, as referenced in the sourced linked to below.
