Google Chrome for Android released

There were many good options for a decent browser on your Android phone, but none was as good enough as the Google chrome on your PC. Well, Google has finally listened to all our wishes and after a really long wait Google Chrome beta for Android has been finally released in the Android Marketplace.

The current beta of the Chrome browser for Android works only on Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich and is officially released only in some selected countries.

The Chrome browser for Android is feature packed with HTML5 support, optimized UI for phones and tablets, sending pages from desktop to phone, including all the good old features that work in the PC version of the browser like incognito mode, omnibox and bookmark sync.

The size of the .apk (16 mb) is normal when compared with the Firefox for Android(15 mb). With most of the demanding features released in the beta version itself, we’re pretty much satisified with Chrome for Android. The main concern for most of the users will surely be its only compatibility with Android devices running Ice cream sandwich (Android 4.0), which is still approx 1% minority.

Still if you’re one of those lucky users flaunting Android 4.0 on your device, you can download the app manually and install it (remember to check the “Unknown Sources”  in  security settings). From the link below you can download and directly install Chrome for Android, regardless of the country you’re in.
