Google today revealed a new feature for the Chrome browser on Android devices that lets people quickly search by tapping text. Users can tap any word on a web page when using Chrome and Chrome will automatically search the web for that word in the context of the web site on which it is found. In an example provided by Google, Chrome is smart enough to know that when a user taps on the word "America" in an article about the most recent Captain America movie, it should return results about the character and the movie, rather than about America the country or continent. Google says this new feature will reach most Chrome users over the next few days.
