Chrome Browser for Android

Google has launched a public beta of the Google Chrome web browser for Android. It’s available from the Android Market for phones and tablets running Android 4.0 and up.

Google says Chrome for Android Beta is focused on speed and simplicity, but it also features seamless sign-in and sync so you can take your personalized web browsing experience with you. Link Preview does away with hunting and pecking for links on a web page by automatically zooming in on links to make selecting the precise one easier.

You can also fire up Chrome on your laptop, open a few web pages, and then see a list of those pages on your phone, allowing you to quickly load those websites to read on the go, says Lilliputing.

Chrome for Android brings support for many of the latest HTML5 features to the Android platform. It features hardware-accelerated canvas, overflow scroll support, strong HTML5 video support, and new capabilities.

Much of the code for Chrome for Android is already shared with Chromium and over the coming weeks, the Chromium team will be upstreaming many new components developed for Chrome for Android to Chromium, WebKit and other projects. Android and Chrome are vehicles to carry people to Google search, YouTube, Google Docs, Google Maps, Google+, and future online services, explains C/Net.
