The Chrome for Android beta download has now been officially released for smartphones and tablets. Bringing some favored features from the original web browser to handheld devices, the firmware is currently compatible only with the most recent version of the mobile platform, Ice Cream Sandwich.
Along with speed and ease of use, the developers also assure fans a personalized web experience by means of several sign-in features. The new Chrome application for slates and mobile phones is designed to connect with users’ PCs. Bookmarks and tabs left open on the desktop browser can be readily synchronized to the Android gadget after users have signed in.
“In 2008, we launched Google Chrome to help make the web better. We’re excited that millions of people around the world use Chrome as their primary browser and we want to keep improving that experience. Today, we’re introducing Chrome for Android Beta, which brings many of the things you’ve come to love about Chrome to your Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone or tablet,” conveyed Sundar Pichai, SVP, Chrome and Apps through the official Google Chrome blog.
For those who prefer employing the incognito mode when surfing the internet from their computers using this browser, the mobile Chrome is set to deliver the same levels of privacy. It is also equipped with the Link Preview attribute which is meant to facilitate quicker selection of the most appropriate links in an easy way by providing a zoomed in view. The time-saving autocomplete suggestions for particular sites come up with websites that are visited often on the respective PC, when typing in a query on the mobile version.
The Chrome for Android download for ICS smartphones and tablets is available free of cost from the Android Market.
