Google Debuts Chrome Beta for Android 4.0 Devices
Google today announced the availability of its Chrome browser for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices (smartphones and tablets) in beta form. Chrome and the stock Android browser are now both based on the open-source Chromium Project, which means it will be easier for Google to share features back and forth in the future. Google says that Chrome on Android focuses on being fast and easy to use. It renders web pages quickly, and has a brand-new way to sort through tabs while browsing. Other tweaks include a refreshed user interface, syncing tabs and bookmarks between desktop and mobile browsers, and support for private browsing sessions. Chrome for Android also features a place-shifting tool. It keeps track of open browser tabs on the desktop, for example, and will then open those same tabs to the same pages when the user pulls out their phone. Chrome for Android also offers better handling of URLs with a link preview tool that makes it easier to select and copy web addresses. The application is a free download for Android 4.0 devices, and Google says its ultimate goal is to merge both Chrome for the desktop with Chrome for Android devices.
