Chrome Beta for Android Released!

chrome for android

Chrome for Android literally just went live in the market all of 2 minutes ago. We haven’t even had a chance to play with it ourselves, so go grab it and come back for our reactions in a bit. So far, it is only available to Android 4.0 devices.

    ICS Browser has Flash and Quick Controls and it’s still plenty speedy. I’m sticking with stock ICS for now.

    When I try to download it using the mirror I get a parse error. : (

    Even the “find on page” feature is awesome…

    Is it possible to hide nav bar like the stock browser?
    Other than that its cool. No flash sucks.

  • So far I like it. It run’s pretty well on my Motorola XOOM. However, I often use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard with my XOOM. Chrome Beta accepts both however the scroll wheel on my mouse will not scroll web pages in Chrome Beta (but it will in just about any other application, including the stock browser). So I am left to use the click and hold scroll method, as if I were dragging with my finger.

      Facebook scripts are embedded in most pages these days. Your privacy is worthless and you shouldn’t try to protect it.
