When testing the GAME_VIEWER widget type, I noticed that it can be hard to navigate commented games, especially on mobile. It's easy to get lost/stuck in a variation and time consuming to get out.

One suggestion is to enable the reset button used in problems, either when browsing a variation only (I think this sounds better if it doesn't move the other buttons when added), or in general when variations exist in the tree.

As a user, I'd expect this button to take me back to the last move before the branch I'm viewing (jumping straight back to the main variation could also be annoying). I'd expect a few clicks should take me back to the main branch, with some indication (e.g. gray out or disappear?) that we were back to the actual game.

Putting this button the far left would help to avoid accidental clicking for mobile users.

Sounds reasonable. Maybe better than a go-to-beginning button: Move up to branch, which would auto reset to 0th variation.
