Google Chrome Finally Launches For Android (ICS Only) [News]

chrome logo   Google Chrome Finally Launches For Android (ICS Only) [News]Google Chrome, one of the most popular web browsers on computers, is now available for Android mobile devices. The catch is that it is only available for Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). If you have an older operating system, you will have to sit on the sidelines for this one. Now that the bad news is out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff. Chrome syncs everything, just like computer to computer, which is an awesome feature to have on your mobile device. It also has a much cleaner system for jumping between tabs.

If you have an Android device running version 4.0 or higher, you will want to download this browser, because the improvements are very noticeable. The feature list of Google Chrome is truly something special. For example, if you are near a cluster of links, and the browser detects you may have a tough time it hitting the right one, it will automatically launch a little magnifying glass to guide you where you need to go.

One really cool feature is that you can actually see the tabs you have open on your computer from your phone. So if you are in the middle of something, you can continue where you left off without missing a beat.

It sounds like Google has taken the mobile browser to another level. It’s faster, more feature packed and all around better; that is as long as you own a Galaxy Nexus, Transformer Prime, Xoom, and the Nexus S.
