Google Chrome for iOS updated with Bottom Omnibox Setting
All you need is a flag
Apple's Safari browser has long had the option to move the address bar to the bottom of the screen, a layout that is said to be more ergonomic for one-handed use. Now, it appears that Google has brought the same option to Chrome for iOS.
The option to move the Omnibox to the bottom of the screen is currently only available in a beta version of Chrome for iOS. Google has not yet announced when this feature will be available for the public release, but it is likely to be rolled out in a future update.
In the meantime, users who are interested in trying out the feature can do so by enabling the following flag in Chrome's settings:
After enabling the flag, users will need to relaunch Chrome for the change to take effect.
Once the flag is enabled, users will be able to move the Omnibox to the bottom of the screen by tapping on the three dots in the top right corner of the browser and selecting "Settings." Then, scroll down to the "Layout" section and toggle on the switch for "Bottom Address Bar."
The bottom-aligned Omnibox layout is still under development, so it is possible that there are some bugs or other issues with it. However, it is a welcome addition to Chrome for iOS, and it gives users more control over the way they use the browser.
