Google announced three new experiences to play with in the beta of Chrome, the first allowing users to continue searching without having to hit the back button.
In order to make it easier to navigate between search results in Chrome, Google is experimenting with adding a line below the address bar on Chrome for Android that displays the rest of the search results, without having to go back. backward.
As explained in a blog post, the feature can be enabled in the beta version of Chrome by enabling the # continuous-search flag on Android.
Still in search, the second feature announced is the “maps” on the new tab page that allow users to pick up where they left off based on their browsing history, as long as they are signed in to Chrome.
“Looking for that tax spreadsheet you opened yesterday, but don’t want to spend time looking through your history?” Google asks.
“Cards make it easy to review past activities or tasks, like planning a meal, buying a gift, or working on a document in Google Drive.”
The feature can be used by enabling the # ntp-modules flag on a computer.
Using recipes as an example – # ntp-recipe-tasks-module – Google said that a user can find recently visited and related recipes when they open a new tab. Documents – # ntp-drive-module – returns to recently opened documents in Google Drive. Likewise, the shopping cart – # ntp-chrome-cart-module – is presented as allowing a user to resume shopping online from where they left off.
“When you walk away or browse other sites, you can get back to your open baskets just by opening a new tab,” the blog adds.
Google will now also allow users to highlight and share quotes, along with quote cards.
“Want to share some interesting information from an article you’re reading? It’s easy to do that with quote cards in Chrome,” Google said.
Calling it a new experience on Android, the feature will allow the user to create a stylized image from the selected text. It can be tested by activating the # webnotes-stylize flag on an Android phone or tablet.
Once activated, the user will simply need to long press a piece of text to highlight it, tap share and select a template by tapping create card from the menu.
