Google Chrome to get navigation gestures, Say Sources

Google Chrome is the most popular web browser on the market. Google has been improving its web browsing platform since day one in an attempt to take on Safari and Firefox. Chrome now leads the market and comes pre-loaded on every Android device. Google’s web browser is getting better and smarter every year when a new software update comes out.


In reality, Google Chrome was once criticized for using too much memory compared to other web browsers. However, things have changed and it is now better than before. Chrome is the top choice when it comes to web browsing platform on iPhone and iPad even though Safari is smarter. Sources say that Google has been working on exciting features for its web browser. One such feature lies in navigation gestures. Navigation gestures are not something revolutionary as we have something similar out there. Sources say that Google is planning to add iPhone X-like gestures to its Chrome, offering a new way to interact with websites or videos. However, it remains unclear how Google will manage to make this feature possible.

Reports claim that Google still has a lot of work to do ahead of the final release. If this is the case, users will be able to navigate to their desired websites or scroll through an article using gestures. Sources say that navigation gestures will come to Android only at launch, meaning that the iOS version won’t get the update.

Google has been working on a small version of Pixel 3 phone. Sources say that Google has been testing multiple prototypes which appear to the Pixel lite at its facilities. Indeed, the phone will come with a smaller display and a top-notch at launch. Besides, the device will target mainly emerging markets as it will use Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, a mid-range chip that powers thousands of smartphones. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL were widely received at launch, with praise directed at its improved design and innovative features. Google is expecting to ship more Pixel 3 and 3 XL units later this year to meet the huge demand for the new pair.
