What is Virtual Keyboard?
Virtual Keyboard is a Chrome extension designed to enhance the typing experience on touch screen devices. It's a fullscreen, on-screen virtual keyboard that auto-populates when a user selects any text input field and vanishes when it's no longer needed. This convenient accessibility feature mimics the functionality of an iOS/Android/Windows 8 touch virtual keyboard, and supports multiple language layouts. It also includes a host of convenient functionalities like quicker animations, auto-clicking via mouse hover, URL bar and much more.

Please change your icon for "pinning" the extension to Chrome. When using a dark/black theme in Chrome it makes the icon invisible. It needs some white highlights or something. My other issue is when using this on YouTube the "On Demand" function rarely works. You have to put it on "Always On", which means when not using YouTube I have to manually turn it back to "On Demand". Thanks.
