Lately, we posted Chrome Beta for Android Version 25.0.1364.47 Gives Access to Experimental Features and so we do assume that you have already updated.
This new jewel was updated with an aim to offer the users with Experimental features, which are still in development. While most of the casual users might not have updated considering the features to be experimental but now we do recommend you to do so, certainly the question is “why?”. And so we do have an answer to it, this is because not only the experimental features like chrome flags support was offered but it also incorporates an hidden feature! Well, the feature is “Full-Screen Browsing”. You might have experienced this feature in third party browsers like Opera, Dolphin etc and now it is here in Chrome too. Running a browser and turning over pages in full-screen is actually worth as it improves the readability and makes it look much cleaner. Google is really bringing some serious amendments to its Chrome for Android, now you feel it too, right?
The feature was first captured and reported by Smackel (Reddit), we are undoubtedly thankful to him.
