While earlier reports indicated that the home button was showing up in the latest beta version of Chrome for Android, it turns out that on our stable version of the app, the home button is there (see accompanying image). If you haven’t set up a webpage to be your home page, tapping on the home icon will take you to the Google Search page by default.
To set up your own home page, click on the overflow menu at the top right of Chrome and click on settings. Tap on Home page and type in the URL of the website you want the home button to quickly take you to. Make sure you leave the toggle switch in the “enabled” position. Check out the slideshow to see how it’s done.
