If you have ever used the Vivaldi web browser on a desktop, you might know about the ‘Quick Commands’ feature. The feature allows users to search for any feature within the web browser. Now, Google Chrome introduced a similar feature on its Canary build. The new feature is called ‘Commander,’ and it brings a quick launch interface to the Google Chrome browser.
The new Commander feature of Google Chrome is pretty much similar to the Chrome Actions that have been introduced last year. Once enabled, it brings a search interface to Chrome that always appears on top of every webpage you visit.
