Google releases fresh beta of Chrome with better mouse control

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google has released a fresh beta of its Chrome web browser and says it includes improved mouse control, according to The Inquirer.

The feature is aimed at gamers, and sees Google adopting the Pointer Lock Javascript API, or mouse lock.

It is designed for use with 3D web applications and games. Users can try it out with a Quake 3 map viewer, and it lets control movement such as looking around while keeping the mouse cursor firmly in place on the screen.

Trying out the Quake 3 demo, which sadly does not give the ability to shoot anything, is probably the best way to see how it works. Keeping the cursor central makes looking around easy, meaning that the players can concentrate on running, jumping and, when and if a game allows it, shooting things, The Inquirer says.
