Chrome Adds Touch-Friendly Features

Google looks to be adding a host of touch-friendly features for its Chrome browser. In its latest Canary beta, a new slide-to-navigate feature – almost identical to that in IE 10 or Windows 8 – has been added, and pinch-to-zoom is now in the code as well. These new additions make sense in the context of the new touchscreen Chromebook Pixel, as well as the new Windows 8 OS. The new features will outfit the browser for the next generation of touch-screen devices and operating systems.
