Virtual Keyboard for Google Chrome™

About

Virtual Keyboard for Google Chrome™ will popup automatically when the user clicks on an input field such as textboxes and textareas. Futhermore, the keyboard will disappear automatically once no longer needed.

This extension is ideal for touch screen devices. This keyboard works like an iOS/Android/Windows 8 touch virtual keyboard.

Known Limitations

Due to security reasons, communication between frames is restricted in Google Chrome. The only way to enable the keyboard in cross-origin iFrame scenarios, you need to disable web security using a flag.
