The Google Chrome browser app for Android has updated to provide users with a do-over that lets them undo closing a tab. The feature first seen in a beta version several weeks ago has been tested and approved for general release. The way it works is that when someone closes a tab in Chrome, a temporary pop-up appears with an "Undo" button that will reopen the tab when pressed. (Note: the feature may not yet work as a number of people, myself included, have the latest version of Chrome according to Google Play but it doesn't support Undo Tab close. If you're impatient and willing to deal with a less stable version, try the Chrome BETA Android app.)
Other new features include subtitles and full-screen controls when watching HTML 5 videos within the Chrome browser. When watching video on the mobile device, it will be easier to handle playback now, especially if you are viewing a video that supports on-screen subtitles. There's also added support for casting some of those videos to a Chromecast.
