Google is adding new features to its mobile operating system, such as partial custom tabs and auto-filling passwords, to improve in-app browsing.
The partial custom tabs feature allows developers to have more control over a tab’s initial launch height. When a user clicks on an article link, for example, they can have the tab open on half of the screen. This enables users to interact with the app and in-app browsers at the same time. According to Google, select in-app browsers, including Chrome, support partial custom tabs. Google is also enabling users to fill in passwords and other saved details such as addresses without leaving the app. When an app has an in-app browser login popup, this comes in handy.
