Update: Check out a new video showing off Gello below.
There’s not much to know about this yet, but CyanogenMod staff member Joey Rizzoli has come out on Google+ today to announce a new browser project the team has been working on. It’s called “Gello,” and while we don’t know many real details at this point, it seems apparent that it’s built at least in some capacity on Google’s open source Chromium project (which the Mountain View company’s flagship Chrome browser is based on as well).
All we have to go off of right now is a really quick trailer released by Rizzoli on his Google+ page, showing off some really quick screenshots of some of the app’s current features. There seems to be some kind of “Night mode” and “Immersive mode” options, configurable download settings (including the ability to choose file paths), an interface that can be customized to the user’s liking, a “save for offline” mode, and more.
It’s not clear what CyanogenMod might have planned for the browser. It might end up being a pack-in for a future version of CyanogenMod or Cyanogen OS, or it might just find its way to the Play Store at some point. We’ll surely be learning more soon. We unfortunately can’t embed the video directly from Google+, so you should head over and check that out. Below is a video showing off Gello:
