Google Finally Releases Chrome for Android


Yesterday Google announced their new web browser for Android - Chrome. Google Chrome Beta is only available at the moment for Android devices running 4.0 (Ice-Cream Sandwich), meaning that almost every phone/tablet out there isn't compatible...for the moment. Chrome is still in Beta (as the name suggests) and little is known whether or not Google will release it for lower-gen devices, but I guess anything is possible. It could be that Google is keeping it for 4.0 until they get the bugs out, and then will later launch an update with backwards compatibility.

The late release may be in response to Google’s newest privacy changes aimed at combining all of their apps together for a more streamlined performance. With Google Sync, Chrome for Android will help Android stick to Google’s goal of simplicity. It will be nice to have all of my computer tabs opened on my PC and vice-versa, but can’t help thinking that this is what Google should have done from the start, much like iOS did. Check out the video below for more information, and if you have a 4.0 device (my Razr will get upgraded soon I hope), feel free to send me a review on Facebook or Twitter or in the comments below!
