Google Glass Receives Its First Web Browser

Over the past couple of months, we’ve seen a number of applications make their way to Google Glass that allows you to post on Facebook, browse Reddit and even a Twitter application, but up until now, it hasn’t been possible to browse websites using the wearable computer. Google today has finally launched website browser to Google Glass.

The news comes from a Google+ post where Google says they’ve “been exploring ways to let you quickly dive deeper and get exactly the information you need, right when you need it.” The process to view a webpage is simple, as all you’ll need to do is “search for something and then tap on the ‘View website’ screen to bring up the web page.”

Viewing a web page will allow Google Glass users to navigate their way through the page by using the device’s touchpad. Google Glass’ touchpad supports multi-touch, so you’ll be able to use multiple fingers to help navigate the web page better. Hopefully Google will come up with a better option to navigate websites than by using Glass’ touchpad, although we think it’d be rather difficult to have Google Glass understand what you want to do on a web page just by listening to your voice.
