Google Chrome Beta Released for Android, Finally!

Google has finally release its long-wanted Chrome browser for Android roughly a few minutes ago. In order to run the app you must have Android 4.0 installed. It’s in beta right now so expect a few bugs and while we haven’t had a chance to play with it yet you can expect a review from us here in the next few days or so. According to Google the Android version has the following features:

– Browse fast with accelerated page loading, scrolling, and zooming,
– Search and navigate directly from the omnibox,
– Open and switch between unlimited tabs in an easy-to-view stack,
– Sign in to Chrome to sync your bookmarks and view tabs you have open on your computer,
– Send pages from desktop Chrome to your smartphone or tablet with one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline,
– Browse privately in Incognito mode,

You can check to see if it is available in your country by going here. Hit the break below to for the QR code, market link and marketing video. It is certainly a great day for Android users and Chrome fans everywhere! Again, look for our review of the app shortly. Enjoy!

    4.0 only ?? So, a measly 1% of users can actually run this? Very disappointing !!

      Give it time, I’m sure devs out there somewhere will get this working for everyone else.

    When I scanned the code & it went to the Market it said that my HTC Sensation wasn’t compatible with it so I can’t download it. Disappointing.

    This is where having an ASUS tranformer prime comes in handy. Chrome looks good on it, nice and fast, and I like the syncing to my laptop. :)
