CNET was found hints inside Google’s source code. These signs are told us that company programmers have begun building a tablet version of Chrome OS.
- A “virtual keyboard” with a number of keys drawn in SVG so they can be shown by a browser.
- A variety of moves to make the browser more touch-friendly, for example by increasing the space around items to make it easier to select them with a touch interface.
- A revamped new-tab page (which people see when they open a new, blank tab) that’s “optimized for touch.”
- The orientation of the new-tab page will change when the device is rotated, according to the new-tab page’s coding annotations.
- The CSS code for the new-tab page also indicates that programmers would like to be able to move icons around the page, preferably with animation.
