If anyone is interested in having a little home button in Chrome, it's pretty simple. I just copied the ChromeCustomizations.apk from the newest COS 12.1 build to the appropriate folder, set the correct permissions and it worked!

I know it's a trivial mod but thought I'd post it here in case anyone else wants it. I have only tested it on CM nightlies (more specifically Sultan's CM 12.1 CAF ROM). It should work on CM based ROMS but not sure about others.

You can either copy the apk file to system/app/ChromeCustomizations/ folder (you'll have to create the folder), or use the attached flashable zip.

Enjoy.

Thank you very much. I've been looking for this. Confirmed working on latest Chrome Beta after flashing through TWRP too. Awesome work.

Yes, it worked for me with Chrome beta. Didn't try on Chrome. After installing as per the indtructions, reboot your phone to see it working.

Works beautifully.

Moto X Pure. Chrome beta. TruPureXMM.
I used the flashable file.

Edit
It takes me to a bing search. Why?

If someone needs to remove it. Hold down on the home button till a remove box pops up.

You know you can change the default home page in the chrome app settings, right? The default is bing because this mod is from cyanogen OS but you can change it to whatever you want. Like the screen shot from the OP where I have it set to BBC.com.

Fantastic. What I was looking for and works is leaving the home page blank. Hit home and takes me to google page.

Radical..
Thanks!
