Google Registers Search Gesture for Future Devices


A gesture system that could soon be making its way to Chrome for Android. The application describes a two-part continuous gesture for easier searching on touchscreens. Imagine drawing a “g” with your finger, then circling the text or image you want to search in one motion, and you’ll get the basic drift. It’s also indicated that different letters could be drawn to search different sites, “w” for Wikipedia, “y” for Yahoo and so on. There are already Browsers like Dolphin for Android which have incorporated gestures into their apps, and even the popular homescreen replacement Nova Launcher has made use of gestures like 2-finger swipes.
