The Future Of Google Chrome Revealed On Lifehacker

Gus over at Lifehacker managed to score some one on one time with Google's Glen Murphy, the lead designer on Google Chrome. If you've ever wondered how Chrome will translate to a touchscreen device, you should definitely checkout Glen's comments around designing the browser for touch:

It’s OK on laptops, but the form factor is not quite there yet. Looking at Chrome on a tablet, and we do a lot of exploration there. Chrome on a pure touch device is going to look a little different. Reaching for the top of the screen where your tabs are is a pain, for instance, so tabs have moved around a bit.
