Just imagine a world without internet? This modern marvel has become an integral part of our life. Most of us prefer to surf the web on a desktop computer because navigating the web is easier on a PC than on a smartphone or tablet device. The big screen, a full-fledged keyboard and mouse make things a breeze.
Since our smartphones have much smaller screens and keyboards too small to type text easily and without mistake, surfing the web on them is not a pleasant experience. Google Chrome is the most popular browser among PC and smartphone users alike. And if you use Chrome on your Android device for browsing the web, there is a new app available now to make navigating the web much easier.
XDA member JT5 has developed a very useful module that works with Xposed framework. ChromePie, as the module is called lets you access your desired or most used navigation options found on Chrome through a beautiful pie-launcher. ChromePie works with both, the regular and the beta version of Chrome.
ChromePie is a very simple app that that offers pie-controls for options like:
- Back, forward, refresh, new tab, new incognito tab, close tab
- Add bookmark, history, request desktop site, find in page
- Add to home, share, scroll to top, full screen, etc.
Thus ChromePie makes using Chrome for surfing the web a better experience. You can launch the pie-controls anytime while using Chrome by swiping finger from left, right or both edges of the screen. Since it’s a module for the Xposed Framework, you need to have a rooted device with Xposed installed on it. We tested the app on the Nexus 5, HTC One M8 and LG G3, and it worked flawlessly on all of them.
