Chrome comes to Android, but you'll need 4.0


Google has launched a beta version of its Chrome browser for the Android OS, but it needs the latest version, 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich.

Announcing the move on Google's official blog, Sundar Pichai, SVP, Chrome and Apps, said: "Chrome for Android is designed from the ground up for mobile devices. We re-imagined tabs so they fit just as naturally on a small-screen phone as they do on a larger screen tablet. You can flip or swipe between an unlimited number of tabs using intuitive gestures, as if you're holding a deck of cards in the palm of your hands, each one a new window to the web."

He added: "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."

The mobile version can also be synchronised with the desktop version. If users sign in with the Android account, any pages or tabs left open on the desktop will open on the mobile version.

The browser is available only in a dozen countries, but Australia is one of them.
