Google is testing out a new feature for the mobile version of its Chrome web browser that should make your browsing experience a bit better. Currently accessing your recent web history involves a few taps behind some settings menus, but a new feature in the works will allow you to long press the back button on your device to pull up that history in case you need to quickly jump back several pages.
This feature would lift a similar function from the desktop version of Chrome where you can right click the back navigation arrow to see your recent history, and it’s something that some other browsers sort of already do, like Safari on iOS.
It’s a small change, but it’s still in the very early stages of development, so you’ll likely have to wait a few months before it even makes its way into the very unstable Chrome builds. But by the end of the year, your extreme web browsing sessions will be slightly more convenient than ever before.
