In the Chromium source code released in the past few months, we found that it mentioned this in a series of changes.

As a model, we can guess that it is a function.Mobile phoneBut it can not be concluded. After all, many types of devices may not include touch functions (e.g.Windows/ Mac / Android TV.


From the screenshot above, we can see that the number 2 is the page navigation key, while the number 1 and 3 correspond to the reduction and enlargement key. In addition, you can switch back and cursor navigation mode directly.


Given the limited hardware resources, processing performance and battery capacity of the feature machine, Chrome has to shrink some key functions, such as the inability to enable privacy browsing mode and the ability to open only one tab at a time. Or when you skip the tabs, the previously unused pages will be closed in the background.

Although it's not 100% sure that Google is going to enter the feature machine market yet, it's quite possible from the company's recent actions, such as investing millions of dollars in KaiOS and introducing Google Assistant smart assistants.

However, KaiOS is based on HTML5 and other network technologies, and runs in KaiOS browser. It sounds strange to have Chrome nested in browsers.

In that case, the most likely scenario is that the Chrome will still run on Android, but the system will be fairly streamlined and the performance of the devices running will be quite limited.
