Chrome Home Interface Introduced For Some Chrome Beta Users
Google Chrome is the most popular web browser in the world. The team of developers working on the browser have been quick in coming out with a number of updates at very frequent intervals. Projects that the browser works on are often planned months in advance. Last year in October, we saw the Chrome Home interface for the first time, which brought in many design changes in Chrome. However, that was in the pipeline for months. It has finally begun to appear on Chrome Beta for some users.
What is the Chrome Home Interface?
For those users who might not be aware, a big change is being planned in the way the Google Chrome looks and feels. The Chrome Home interface, which was first seen last year was brought forward to Chrome Dev last month, and has now moved to some Chrome Beta users. In the past this was seen just as a flag, which, when enabled would bring the address bar to the bottom of the display. However, it has progressed a lot since then.
In the Chrome Home interface we refer to here, the address bar is in the bottom and there are many other features too. Most notable of them is the addition of bottom tabs, as well as a new and revamped ‘new tab’ page. These changes which are being made to Google Chrome are quite handy, especially in times where smartphone screens are growing in size.
Chrome Home moves the navigation bar to the bottom, making it easier for one-handed operations even on larger displays. The tabs on the bottom are those of Home, Downloads, Bookmarks and History – the four most frequently used features of the browser. This Chrome Home UI has now moved on to the Chrome Beta channel, which indicates that Google is quite confident in this design style. We expect it to come out to the stable version of Google Chrome over the next few months.
