Google Chrome Canary Beta Build Brings Touch Control and On-Screen Keyboard
Introduced to last night's Canary build is a new swipe feature that allows you to navigate through webpages without resorting to the back and forward buttons. It's very similar to the slide navigation feature found in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 browser for Windows 8.
One of the Chrome Canary flags also enables pinch-to-zoom, a fairly basic touch option, and there's an on-screen keyboard that you can enable by tapping the address bar or text boxes.
Google's push into touch territory is no doubt motivated by Windows 8, and it also complements the company's own Chromebook Pixel with touchscreen.
