Back in February, Google fiiinally introduced a bloomin’ Chrome app for its Android OS. Well, sort of. I’ll get to that in a minute.
Now we’re hearing that, two months later, Google has made the mobile version of its Chrome browser available for, like, more people and stuff. Huzzah!
When the app first dropped a couple of months ago, it arrived in beta form. Er, which is still the case. And it was only available to the slither of Android users on Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Er, also still the case.
However, the good news is that the Beta version of Google Chrome – free to download, incidentally – is now available across all Google Play marketplaces, and in 32 languages. Sacrebleu!
One of the features I quite like is the ability to sync your mobile Chrome browser with the desktop version, so you can see the tabs you left open on your home computer machine. Nice.
Other Google Chrome features include accelerated browsing, unlimited tabs and private browsing in Incognito mode.
Good stuff. Now all I need is a smartphone with Ice Cream Sandwich. Sigh.
