Google Chrome Beta hits Android
Google today announced that a beta version of the Chrome browser is available in the Android Market, merging two of the company’s signature software offerings in one. Strictly designed for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices only for now, it comes with support for a variety of markets. If you live in one of the markets listed on Google support page and have a 4.0 product (Google Nexus, Wi-Fi Xoom, etc) then you’d do much worse than to try out the hot little browser.
We’re certainly crossing our fingers that Google releases something that works backwards on 2.3 or 3.X devices as our first impressions are very positive.
