All about Google Chrome & Google Chrome OS

14 Feb 12 Google launches Chrome for Android



Chrome is now available in Beta from the Android Market, in select countries for phones and tablets with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich

Google launches today Chrome for Android Beta. As always, it continues to bring many preferred features and apps of Chrome to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones or tablets. Like the desktop version, Chrome for Android Beta is focused on speed and simplicity, but it also features seamless sign-in and sync so web experience can be personalized with convenience, mobility and accessibility.

With Chrome for Android, users can search, navigate and browse fast—Chrome fast.  Users can scroll through web pages as quickly as they can flick their fingers. When searching, top search results are loaded in the background as users type so pages appear instantly. And of course, both search and navigation can all be done quickly from the Chrome omnibox.

Chrome for Android is designed from the ground up for mobile devices. Google reimagined tabs so they fit just as naturally on a small-screen phone as they do on a larger screen tablet. Users can flip or swipe between an unlimited number of tabs using intuitive gestures, as if they’re holding a deck of cards in the palm of their hands, each one a new window to the web.

One of the biggest pains of mobile browsing is selecting the correct link out of several on a small-screen device. Link Preview does away with hunting and pecking for links on a web page by automatically zooming in on links to make selecting the precise one easier.

And as with Chrome on desktop, Google built Chrome for Android with privacy in mind from the beginning, including incognito mode for private browsing and fine-grained privacy options (tap menu icon, ‘Settings,’ and then ‘Privacy’).

Sign in
Users can now bring their personalized Chrome experience with them to their Android phone or tablet. If they sign in to Chrome on the Android device, they can:
— View open tabs: Access the tabs were left open on the computer (also signed into Chrome)—picking up exactly where the user left off.
— Get smarter suggestions: If a site is being visited often on the computer, users also get an autocomplete suggestion for it on a mobile device, to spend less time in typing.
— Sync bookmarks: Conveniently access to sites no matter where or which device is being used.

Chrome is now available in Beta from Android Market, in select countries and languages for phones and tablets with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. Eager to hear feedback from users, Google looks forward to working closely with the developer community to create a better web on a platform that defines mobile.
