How to use Google Chrome on Chromebooks
Google is expanding the Chrome OS version of its Chrome browser on Chromebook models, including the new Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixelbook.
According to the company, the new version of the Chrome browser includes the latest security patches and a lot of new features.
“You will see a new tab bar in the bottom right corner of Chrome,” Google’s blog post reads.
“You will also be able to choose to keep the tabs you are currently on in the tab bar, or switch to a new, larger tab bar.”
Google also added a bunch of new settings to ChromeOS.
The most interesting of which is a “Smart Scroll” feature.
This will allow ChromeOS to automatically scroll the page and let you see what’s in front of you.
That’s not all though.
“Now you can swipe left and right to jump between tabs, and pinch to zoom in on the browser,” Google writes.
This is all new for ChromeOS, which is based on the Google-developed Android OS, but it’s not a new feature.
It’s a ChromeOS feature that lets ChromeOS handle a lot more than just tabbing and scrolling.
The new ChromeOS features that have been announced include the ability to customize tabs with new icons, custom text colors and more.
ChromeOS is not limited to just tabs.
“The new Google Chrome browser now also supports custom fonts, and can load extensions from extensions stores,” Google adds.
Google has also rolled out a bunch more Chromebooks with the Pixel, which are expected to launch next year.
Chrome OS on Chromebook Pixel, Chromecast, Chromebook Pro and Pixel C models have all been added to the Google Chromebook lineup, which includes a total of six devices.
Chrome is expected to be launched alongside Chromebooks for laptops, tablets, and phones.
