Android Devices Will Soon See Google’s Chrome Browser

Google Chrome and Android have yet to officially partner up, but a recent change in the Chromium revision log shows that work to bring Chrome to Android is well under way and that it may be coming very soon. Possibly in time for launch with a new Nexus device?

We know that lots of readers have been waiting for an official Google Chrome web browser for their Android devices for quite some time, so who here is just as excited as we are for this development? What features do you hope cross over from the desktop to mobile version? Let’s hear it down below.

Cheers Eric for the great picture!

    Chrome home!

    The bookmarks bar.

  • Anonymous

    Phone to Chrome, syncing of bookmarks would be awesome

  • Bookmark syncing along with password and autofill sync. All in the background

  • I precisely had to thank you so much all over again. I’m not certain what I could possibly have created without the suggestions shared by you directly on such concern. It was before a fearsome setting in my view, but observing the specialized manner you processed it forced me to jump over delight. Now i’m thankful for this assistance and even wish you know what a powerful job you are providing instructing people all through your site. I’m certain you have never come across any of us.

    I hope its the fastest browser available when it comes out.  I for sure will give it a try.  I use chrome on my PC.  Love it

  • And here this whole time I thought the stock browser WAS some kind of Chrome browser. I mean, come on, its Android/Google right? Why wouldn’t they ship it with Chrome lol.

    Chromebooks that support Android devices. 

    Otherwise known as Motorola “webtop devices”. With the purchase of Motorola, I seriously think Google should marry Android and Chrome in such a way that Android phones will become the brains/heart of a thin, portable netbook that runs Chrome.

    It’s killing two birds with one bullet.
    It. Just. Makes. Sense.

    Incognito FTW!!!

      yay boobies!

  • Just the logo and name is fine with me, better yet the old chrome logo, I liked that one better

    my best friend’s mom makes $78 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7587 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here HardRich.com

      she’s a whore

  • I would like to show thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular matter. As a result of browsing throughout the world-wide-web and coming across tips that were not beneficial, I assumed my life was over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve sorted out as a result of the short article is a serious case, and the ones that could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. Your expertise and kindness in playing with a lot of stuff was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the reliable and result oriented help. I won’t think twice to recommend your web sites to any person who would like recommendations on this subject.

    The Logitech Revue seems to be a restricted Android environment with Google TV, but it contains Chrome as an app – or at least a Chrome workalike.

    SWEEET ! i would love to have Chrome on my Phone.

  • David Hayden

    I just switched from Firefox to Chrome as my main browser. So I’m looking forward to Chrome on my future Nexus phone.

    • Bionic

      yup.  Firefox is sooooo over-rated

  • Trix Knicely

    Finally!  Chrome makes the internet better. Using other browsers feels like you are not unlocking the internet’s full potential.  I am hoping for built in cloud print, super fast speeds, all things awesome etc…

  • Neowiz73

    Should have been the default browser from the beginning 🙂

  • Gordol

    I’m looking for exactly one thing beyond what the browser already does:  Bookmark sync with the desktop.

  • Rob Becker

    I want all of that Chrome goodness plus maybe some Amazon Silk / pagespeed service on the google side to REALLY speed things up.

  • Firefox is way ahead of Chrome on Google’s own mobile OS. How ironic. Considering that Chrome was developed to be more of an OS than a browser and has relatively high RAM needs, it should be interesting to see how Google shoehorns it into Android.

  • viewthis66

    i’m definitively looking forward to this. its about time.

  • Jarred Sutherland

    I have always wondered why they didn’t pair these two up before, for the obvious reason of both being Google products. I am always happy to see competition, but it better be good!

  • sync bookmarks and sync tabs is what i would like to see

  • jav

    How is this any different than the browser already present in Android, but with a different name / logo? The tablet version, and rumor has it ICS version, already have chrome bookmark sync and even the phone version is based on the same Chromium source that Chrome is.

  • Finally. It’s odd that it’s taken them so long to bring Chrome to their primary Operating System.

    It’s about time

    “Chrome for Android is still a long way off, and we probably won’t see any major software additions until Android “Jelly Bean” at least.”

    now i don’t know what to believe

  • Anonymous

    I don’t get it.. bookmarks, passwords, autofill, etc are ALL features available today with your android phone and chrome sync?  What would chrome bring to the table, other than the obvious tabs and I guess addons?  Seems like we can do all of that stuff already?  

    that being said… I wish my browser said ‘chrome’ 🙂

    • EC8CH

      ” I wish my browser said ‘chrome'”
      yep.. just seeing that chrome icon would improve my user experience 😛

  • Chris Gram

    THANK GOD!!! So tired of the shitty browsers on Android.

    I want a lapdock that launches full chrome OS, honestly

      There an idea drop the Webtop software and when I put my phone in there turn it into a Chromebook.  Good thinking!

  • Anonymous


  • Could be a game changer for me… I haven’t been swayed to leave dolphin in 2 years.

  • EC8CH

    Tabs maybe 😛

  • A honeycomb browser that doesn’t crash constantly would be a good starting point. 

  • Sean333

    Chrome to Chrome(PC/tablet), like Chrome to Phone but in reverse, would be awsome…

    • EC8CH

      I don’t know how many times I wish I could do this exact thing.

    • +1 to this. I am always wishing for that. Phone to Chrome

      • I have a chrome extension that does just this look up 2cloud

    • they have this already. look up phone to chrome. kinda confusing lol

    Besides the obvious options for synchronizing bookmarks, autofill, or passwords, it would be pretty sweet to have mobile extensions. Phones are getting powerful enough to handle them. It would be pretty sweet to run Ad-Block from the mobile browser while have a backwards phone-to-chrome feature!

    • Ad block would be very nice. 

      For one, a lot of us now have caps and the ads take up some of that space and second, advertising takes up too much screen real estate and processing power.  Two, I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and view full web pages.  Half the sites I go to have multiple flash advertisements going on that bog it down.  I want the option of disabling advertisements.

    I want the ability to sync open tabs … I’m seeing an option to open a menu on my phone and see the list of tabs I have open on all of my desktops and then open it on my phone. We might as well have that be a two way street as well … maybe when I find something on my phone but want to read on a bigger screen I could send it to my desktop.

    That plus bookmark and password syncing

  • Curtis Fox

    Honestly just bookmark syncing and fast browsing speeds are all I want 🙂

  • i havent seen a lot of FIRST in awhile

      Lets hope it stays that way

          There’s always that one asshat….
          oh, wait…no, that’s right. ;P

          • J Dub

            You know, what does an asshat actually look like? Ball cap? Turban? Cowboy hat? Beanie? Will we ever know?

      But have you been seeing the idiot that types “Amazing” instead of “First” all the time?
