Briefly: Gmail for Android update leak, Chrome OS updates

updated 02:18 pm EDT, Fri May 24, 2013

Google developer presentation may have leaked Gmail for Android update

Gmail for Android may be seeing a redesign in the near future, after a slide from a Google I/O showed a new navigation drawer. The revised and larger drawer, spotted by Android Police, is anchored to the left hand side and pulls in instead of dropping down from the top, and the action bar at the bottom of the screen is removed and replaced by buttons that perform the same tasks elsewhere in the interface.

Chrome OS adds new three-finger gesture, new launcher positions

Chrome OS will be receiving an update over the next few days, including new panel windows for Chat and other services. According to the change log, a new launcher positioning mode will be added, along with a list of open windows and tabs per-application, an updated Chrome Office Viewer extension, a new folder hierarchy in the file manager, and a number of plug-in and memory management optimizations have also been rolled into the update. A new gesture has also been included, namely a three-finger scrub to switch between tabs, and enhanced support for wireless touchpads and mice.
