Google Chrome now in Beta for Android

Google Chrome has been steadily climbing the browser charts since it was first released in 2008, it recently overtook Firefox as the world’s second most popular browser. It still has some ways to overthrow Internet Explorer but Chrome has decided to set out to conquer fresh new territory – this time on mobile phones and tablets running Android. The browser lands on Android aren’t uninhabited however with the likes of Firefox Mobile,  Dolphin Browser and Opera Mobile already building colonies of fans.

Google Chrome for Android was released in beta not long ago but is only available for mobile devices running Android 4.0, which sucks for people who haven’t got an Ice Cream Sandwich powered phone and double sucks for people like me still rocking Android 2.2. Chrome for Android like it’s big brother is promising simplicity, speed and the ability to sync open tabs between sessions. There is no flash support in the current build and a myriad of bugs as expected in beta software but if you are one of the few with a Andrid 4.0 device scoot on over to Android Market and download Chrome for Android.
