Google Adds Touch Features to Chrome Browser

Google adds touch navigation into the latest test version of Chrome browser. Now desktop users can also enjoy the tablet like touch features on their PCs.

Good news folks. Touch controls are on its way for desktop Chrome browsers. Latest Google Chrome Canary build has shown some very new touch-friendly Chrome features. These touch navigation features include an "enable pinch scale" feature that allows users to zoom-in by touching the website with your fingers.

Another slide-to-navigate feature is also added that to go backwards and forwards on websites by just simply swiping your finger left or right. This feature is almost similar to that present in IE10 on Windows 8. According to The Verge, Google Chrome browsers installed on desktops having Windows 8 OS will also provide an onscreen keyboard by just simply tapping the address bar or text boxes.

Windows 8/7/XP/Vista users can now enjoy these finger-friendly touch controls on their PCs by just downloading the test version of Google Chrome Canary.
