Android Chrome might move search bar to screen bottom

It's all topsy-turvy.

Even with my oversized mitts, stretching all the way across my Nexus 6P to hit the Chrome address bar can be a challenge. But I won't be reaching nearly as far if the newly unveiled "Chrome Home" feature in Canary makes it into the next update. Namely because the address bar -- as well as the tab switcher and settings menu -- will be right there at the bottom of the screen.

The feature is still in its alpha stage and currently only available on the Canary for Android test platform (basically, the developer version of Chrome). As such, there's no word yet on when or even if the feature will make it to the consumer version. Nor is there much information yet on the feature's title and whether it is in any way connected to the upcoming Google Home device.
