Chromebook virtual keyboard is getting a facelift. A new flag available in the Canary channel of Chrome OS makes adds “bordered keys”.
Virtual Keyboard Bordered Key: Show virtual keyboard with bordered key – Chrome OS
Let me first show you the virtual keyboard before the new flag is enabled:
Now, the new keyboard, after the flag is enabled:
I do not use my Pixel Slate in tablet mode much (Too big to carry around as a tablet). So the virtual keyboard is not something that I regularly use. However, I can see the visual appeal right away.
It doesn’t look like the border is adding any additional space between the keys. However, it makes the virtual keyboard a bit more similar to a physical keyboard.
Now, that’s from a person who does not use the virtual keyboard much. If you are someone who uses Chrome OS virtual keyboard, I would love to hear your thoughts. Let me know in the comments section.
