Google Chrome, Chrome OS getting advanced, supervised user profiles

Google’s(s goog) Chrome Canary, a very experimental version of the browser, is getting a supervised profile feature that will add localized security, reports the BrowserFame site. I’ve seen the same function, albeit in a very limited fashion, in the developer channel of Chrome OSĀ on my Chromebook Pixel. The functionality looks similar to managed users on desktop platforms such as Windows 8(s msft) and OS X(s aapl), which shouldn’t be a total surprise: Google is quietly building Chrome to rival desktop platforms through the browser, which can boost engagement on the web.
