Google continues to experiment with the address bar of the Chrome browser on Android. The last test, active for some users, is the inclusion of shortcuts to the most visited web pages, just below said bar.

Google Chrome knows what pages visited more frequently, and a proof of this is that they are displayed on the new tab page. Another place where they appear now is under the address bar -or search, which is the same in Chrome- thus being a quick way to open one of the pages you visit the most without having to open a new tab first.

Your favorite websites just a touch away

There are several reasons why you could touch on the Google Chrome bar: to do a search, to enter a web address, to edit the address, to share the address with other applications … Now, in addition, you can do it to open one of the pages you visit the most.

In the last Google Chrome test, just below the block where the current address is displayed, there is a section with Horizontal displacement where the most visited pages are seen. The list is the same as it appears on the new tab page. You cannot edit it from its new location, but you can from the new tab page.


The shortcuts are the same that appear in a new tab

Google is activating this change as a test to some users, although it is possible force change with the help of a Chrome Flag. That is, you need to open chrome://flags in the browser and search Omnibox Most Visited Tiles, opens

Tap on the dropdown to choose Enabled, restart the browser for the changes to take effect and the next time you tap on the address bar and have a web page open other than a Google search, it should appear.


Similarly, if you have this test active and you prefer these accesses do not appear, you can use the same Chrome Flag above to make them disappear. In this case, you will have to change its value to Disabled and restart the browser.
