Google releases Chrome for Android users



Google has finally released Google chrome for Android users. But don’t get excited if you are not an ICS user. Yes, Chrome is available for IceCream Sandwich users only and that also in specific countries. This Android Browser is in BETA stage and available for the ICS users residing in U.S., Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil can download this browser from the Android Market.
The browser, first unveiled in 2008, will be available on tablets and mobile phones using the company's "Ice Cream Sandwich" Android software, Sundar Pichai, a senior vice president in charge of Chrome and applications, said in a blog posting.
Google hasn’t compromised with this browser and it is having all the features of its desktop version.
The company aims to improve the speed of mobile browsing by preloading top search results and enabling users to get the same tabs and bookmarks they have on their desktops.
"Chrome for Android is designed from the ground up for mobile devices," Pichai said. The software 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 wherever you go, across devices."
Chrome for Android Beta also features the ability to sync with the seamless sign-in that allows you to take your personalized web browsing experience with you, wherever you go, no matter what device. It also has tabbed browsing and loads your top search results in the background while you type, speeding up your search experience.  The downside to Google’s Chrome is that you won’t have the choice to use this new browser unless you have a brand new Android 4.0 device, or one of the lucky devices that has managed to receive an upgrade.
The desktop version of Google Chrome is extremely popular among the users. It’s ICS version is also expected to be a hit among the users.
Do you have an ICS device? If you’ve managed to test out Google Chrome on ICS for yourself, let us know what you think of the experience. Is it as good as Google hypes it to be or does it end up falling short?
