    Chrome beta 38 for Android gets a handy touch to search function — Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)

    SUMMARY: With the latest Chrome beta for Android, you can easily do a web search on any highlighted content, just like you can on the desktop. You’ll need to enable this experimental feature though: Here’s what it looks like and how to activate it.

    -- Among some performance updates and bug fixes, the new Chrome beta app for Android includes an experimental feature to assist with Google searches. Once enabled, you can simply tap to highlight any text on a web page and a search window will appear with the highlighted text already entered in the search box.

    I liken this feature to what Google Chrome and other browsers do on the desktop: There you can highlight web content and right-tap for a “Search Google” function. It’s a fast, simple method to get more information about something you’re reading. In Chrome beta 38, it’s a similar function but made for the smaller screen of a phone or tablet.
