A few months ago, I was rocketing around the mobile web with Google’s brand new Chrome browser for Android and iOS devices. Chrome was sleek, new, and fast. It wasn’t until I got to a page with a slider image that things went downhill. It was so simple— all I had to do was swipe my finger across the screen to use the slider– kid’s stuff. But as soon as I did, the page up and flew off my screen! Google, in its considerable genius, made it so that swiping sideways means you want to switch browser tabs. I found that if I moved my finger fast enough, but not too fast, I could operate the slider while still being careful not to arouse Chrome’s suspicion. Despite the hassle, I thought it was pretty cool. To me, this is an interesting scenario that underscores exactly why we at Bluetrain Mobile are so excited about mobile: The mobile web is just getting started. With so much room to grow, the mobile web is fascinating. Why? Because it’s constantly evolving.
