Google release Chrome for Android Beta, just for Android 4.0 devices for now

Google for Android Beta hits Ice Cream Sandwich-powered devices

| Internet Browsers News | Posted: Feb 8, 2012 4:12 am

Google have released Chrome for Android Beta, exclusive (for now) for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices. Exactly like the desktop-based Chrome, Chrome for Android Beta is focused on speed and simplicity, but also sports seamless sign-in and sync, so you can take your personalized web browsing experience anywhere you go.

 

 

Chrome for Android Beta is built for speed, so when searching, your top search results are loaded in the background as you type so that pages appear to load instantaneously. Chrome for Android is built from the ground up for mobile devices, where Google have reimagined tabs so they fit just as naturally on a small-screen smartphone, as they do on the larger-screen tablet.

 

Privacy is a big deal for Chrome, and Chrome with Android Beta is no different. Chrome for Android Beta includes the famous incognito mode for private browsing as well as fine-grained privacy options.

Sign-in is also included, where you can sign-in to Chrome on your Android device. This allows you to access tabs you left open on your desktop, letting you pick up where you left off. As well as bookmark syncing, and smart suggestions, where if you visit a site often on your computer, you'll now get an autocomplete suggest for it on your mobile device - this makes you tap less to type.
