Chrome Browser Finally Launches Touch-Enabled Swipe Features for Developers

Google Chrome’s latest Canary Build has some great swipe features that looks really promising. Swiping left to right will move you back and forth in your browser history. There’s also a feature to “enable pinch scale” that lets you pinch to zoom.

The touch features are needed if Google’s Chrombook is to compete with Internet Explorer on Windows 8, which already has those features. We’ll let you know when the new update rolls out for everyone.

Currently, the new browser is made for developers only and “can sometimes break down completely.” If you want to test drive  the new features, you can download the browser here. It gets updated every night.

Google Introduces Chrome App Launcher

Google has released the Chrome app launcher a tool that recreates the  Chromebook app launcher experience on other platforms. It helps make apps work offline. Google is introducing the tool through Windows and will release Mac OS X and Linux versions soon.

Here is more from Google’s blog: “Chrome packaged apps deliver a native-like experience across multiple platforms with the security properties of a web page. Just like web apps, packaged apps are written in HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. But packaged apps launch outside the browser, work offline by default, and have access to powerful APIs not available to web apps.”

Yesterday Google introduced a new high resolution touchscreen laptop called the Chromebook Pixel.
