Google is now giving more focus to the Chrome OS and working on making the OS more touch screen optimized. The company was recently in the news for testing a fullscreen launcher for Chrome OS in tablet mode. So far Chrome OS was congested with desktops, laptops, chrome books, and convertibles that were not in full-screen mode. A new commit released in the Chromium Gerrit showcases the updated Chrome OS version to have a flat full-screen app launcher in tablet mode.
The Chrome OS was developed by Google and was released almost 6 years ago. Since then, it has evolved a lot. The latest version is more touch-friendly. To make it more convenient, some Android features have also been included during the past months.
The Chrome OS app launcher, which is currently running, has a very simple GUI. The search bar and the recent apps pop up when the home button is clicked. Tapping the arrows broadens the window further, and the full-screen launcher appears.
Last month, Acer made the very first Chrome OS-based tablet public. The device was crafted by Acer, keeping in mind the touch optimization hence, we can hope for more web-based tablets from Google near future.
