Google Chrome, Chrome OS getting advanced, supervised user profiles

Google’s 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 OS on my Chromebook Pixel. The functionality looks similar to managed users on desktop platforms such as Windows 8 and OS X, 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.
