Chrome for Android may get one-handed mode further down the line
A new flag was discovered in Chrome Dev and Canary for Android, simply called “Chrome Home”, which moves the URL bar and options menu to the bottom of the screen. What does that mean? Well, it’s most likely an indicator that Google devs are toying with something like a one-handed mode for the browser. It would only make sense, after all, especially given how Android phones, and smartphones in general, are getting bigger and bigger all the time, and how Google has already facilitated fortyping on big touchscreens by introducing one-handed mode to Google Keyboard.
Safari for iOS has some of its controls, including the forward and back buttons, at the bottom of the screen, while the mobile versions of Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer have had everything at the bottom for years. If only Google would bring the handy bezel swipe gestures from the iOS version of Chrome to Android, the browser would be usable with one hand on bigger screens even without a dedicated mode.
