Google today provided updates to the beta version of Chrome for Android 4.0 devices, as well as Google Maps for all Android devices. The Chrome update introduces several new features, including the ability to request the desktop version of a web site rather than the mobile version; the ability to add bookmarks as shortcuts on the home screen; the ability to select apps for opening links; and the ability to use Chrome with a system proxy. The beta browser also adds the ability to download files from the browser directly to the device; the ability to play older YouTube embedded content; and adds support for country-specific search engines. Google Maps version 6.5.1 includes a "critical bug fix." Both apps can be updated through the Google Play Store.
