Chrome beta for Android gets Undo Tab Close and more

Google is pushing out a new version of its Chrome web browser for Android with new features including support for full screen video with subtitles and HTML5 controls and the ability to re-open tabs you’ve just closed.

The update will be available first to Chrome Beta users, and should eventually make their way into the stable version of Chrome for Android.

Desktop browsers have long offered the ability to undo a close tab command. But if you’ve found yourself accidentally closing a browser tab in Android by hitting the back button (or the X button, I suppose), it’ll be nice to have the ability to backtrack without having to retrace your steps entirely.

Other updates include support for some devices with multi-window features and support for casting some videos from the Chrome browser to a Chromecast.

    It’s missing the one thing that makes Chrome useable still.. Extensions…

    Firefox for Android has Add-Ons.. why doesn’t Chrome have Extensions. Ridiculous. Google is a bunch of cunts.
