Google has just announced the release of Chrome (beta) browser for Android devices. It focuses on speed and simplicity and features seamless sign-in and sync.
– Browse fast with accelerated page loading, scrolling, and zooming
– Search and navigate directly from the omnibox
– Open and switch between unlimited tabs in an easy-to-view stack
– Sign in to Chrome to sync your bookmarks and view tabs you have open on your computer
– Send pages from desktop Chrome to your smartphone or tablet with one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline
– Browse privately in Incognito mode
With Chrome for Android, you can search, navigate and browse fast-Chrome fast. You can scroll through web pages as quickly as you can flick your finger. When searching, your top search results are loaded in the background as you 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. We reimagined 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. 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, we 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’).
