The official Chrome for Android app received an update in Google Play moments ago, bringing a nice list of improvements. According to the changelog, they have improved scrolling performance, increased responsiveness to pinch-to-zoom, faster interactive pages, and expanded support for HTML5 features. 

Updates in this version of Chrome for Android include:

  • Improved scrolling performance
  • Increased responsiveness to pinch-zooming on pages
  • Faster interactive pages thanks to the latest version of the V8 javascript engine
  • Audio now continues to play while Chrome is in the background
  • Expanded support for HTML5 features
  • Audio playing in Chrome will now pause when the phone is in use. This requires an additional permission.
