Two small but exciting things on Chromebook. One is an option to pick “Random Wallpaper” on Chromebook as part of the Aura window manager. Second, we will have Three Finger Scroll on Chromebooks soon!
Aura window manager is getting better day by day giving Chrome OS a more friendly look , the look of a traditional operating system, I should say. Wallpaper was a big change in there and Chrome OS will get an option to set random wallpaper.
Chrome OS Wallpaper
Since Chromebooks are supposed to be always connected, we can expect a lot of features/extensions around this which will download wallpapers from the web giving you more wallpapers automatically every day! I am sure this will be really interesting feature.
Three Finger Swipe
This is a cool new feature added just today, to the code. “Implements a three finger swipe gesture event for the aura Gesture Recognizer” the code change says. This has been committed and available for you to build, or you can download the next build of Chromium OS from Hexeh to test this out.
The description of this change does not specify what actions these new gestures will be used for. So, we will need to wait for more updates on this. Any guesses?
Thank you Pedram Jabbari for your inputs.
