Google launches Chrome on Android

Written by Peter Scott



But only for ICS devices


On Tuesday Google officially announced the launch of Chrome for Android beta, but only for Android 4.0 devices, rendering the entire launch rather pointless.

Most Android users are still stuck on Gingerbread, Froyo or Honeycomb, but Google’s shiny new browser is targeted at the one percent of users who already have brand new phones. So it is a lot like the US income tax code really. Of course, ICS updates for older devices are on the way, but the whole process is painfully slow.

Google claims Chrome for Android will focus on simplicity and speed. The optimized UI will allow users to easily scroll through new tabs, synced with their desktop browser, and search or navigate from Chrome’s omnibox. A new preview feature should also revamp search functionality, as it will offer live link previews, much like the desktop browser.

Chrome for Android is still in beta and it looks quite promising. Hopefully Google will add Gingerbread compatibility once it is done tinkering with it.

Check out the video after the break.
