Google Chrome Beta for Android Available Now

Posted by on February 7, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Let me clarify that it’s only for Ice-cream Sandwich users and no one else. Until today I had no idea that Android was not using Chrome but instead a weird version of Webkit and the Chrome V8 JavaScript engine. That seems so weird to me and the fact that this may not work with older versions of Android baffles me also.

Chrome for Android was built with Speed and Simplicity in mind. “You can scroll through web pages as quickly as you can flick your finger. When searching, your top search results are loaded in the background as you type so pages appear instantly.” If you want tabs, you can have tabs, an unlimited number that you can use gestures to swipe through. Incognito mode is available for all your porn browsing needs as well as bookmark syncing when you sign into your Google account.

How well does it work? What are you asking me for, you know (or should know) I’m the resident Apple fanboy! Maybe our only ICS user, Nick will give it a spin and let you know if you should replace your current “browser” in place for this piece of beta pie. Don’t ask about that last reference…
