Google offers look into Chrome Aura window manager Google has given a first look into its upcoming Aura window manager for Chrome and Chrome OS.
Aura is a hardware accelerated UI that will give users a chance to manage their multiple windows much easier.

The company has revealed a quick teaser (posted below), showing off the UI's features which include translucent window frames and constrained window dragging.

Furthermore, Google is adding a data "timeline" for graphing data sent/received by the browser, a new pointer lock and a new flag.

Finally, the browser will get a chrome://sessions local URL showing the user what tabs are open, no matter how many windows are open.
