There is an update available for Chrome Beta on Android that I highly suggest you all download immediately. A changelog is not included, but whatever the Chrome team did, we 100% approve of. We haven’t noticed any new Labs features like quick controls, however, the browser itself is insanely fast now. Jumping into your tabs view, loading pages, or flipping between screens never felt so good. At first I thought it could have been my loading of CM9 coupled with the update, but our Twitter feed indicates that the speed improvements are noticeable to everyone with the newest version of the browser. We’ll be on the lookout for an official list, but for now, get to browsing.

*Note – For those that are not running phones with official ICS support (Incredible, Sensation, etc.) aka ROMs, this may break Chrome for you. Update with caution.
