Easter Egg in Chrome Beta for Android Check it out

Easter Egg in Chrome Beta for Android Check it out
The Google Chrome Beta released for Android has Easter Egg.  This was discovered by Reddit user Smackel, who found out this bug after a update for Chrome Beta was released.

To enable this easter egg, you have to download the Chrome Beta version for Android, start the browser and type in 'chrome://flags' without comma's in the URL bar.  Scroll down and enable WebGL option.  You may be prompted to restart the browser, restart it.  You will get following result.

Easter Egg in Chrome Beta for Android Check it out

This is the new Chrome experiment called Boids and Building.  Click here to find out what it is.   According to the website it is a 'Procedural city constructed and animated in real time, watched over by procedural boids'  This actually allows for a city of lines to be drawn on your screen and it seems this experiment has led to Chrome enabling full-screen mode.

With the full screen mode, the Chrome Beta is a treat.  However there are still some bugs in the Beta version released which cause the browser to return back to normal mode after restarting Chrome.  

Chrome Beta channel was released for testers for Android 4.0 and later, earlier this month and a full version is expected by Feb end.  This will bring uniformity among its desktop version and Android version.  

You can download the Chrome Beta here if you have a Android 4.0 and up.   And don't worry, install Beta side by side with your regular Chrome.  

The fun part is if you find out some bug in the Beta, you may go viral over the net.  So happy testing and bug discovery to my readers.  Microsoft has also given out a nice Easter Egg for its Star Trek Fans on Bing Search Engine, check it out here!

Please post your comments/any bugs you find with the Beta version.
