Google Chrome turns four

Google Chrome turns four

Back in September of 2008 web browsing was basically restricted to Internet Explorer (IE), Mozilla Firefox, a legion of IE based offshoots and Safari, in particular on the Mac. Things were not bad, but boy things became so much better after Google introduced Chrome on that fateful September 3 in 2008. But over the last four years, Chrome has become much more than a web browser, it is not only the sole entity that binds an user’s Google life together on any device, but Google’s vision is taking to places where no operating system has gone before.

Chrome Beta on Android ICS updated, now available in India

Chrome Beta on Android ICS updated, now available in India

Google has discreetly issued an update for the beta version of Chrome on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Notably, this update now makes Chrome officially available in India via the Android Market. While, the update itself is not a major release, it does offer better page load times, better rending of fonts thanks to full Typekit support, and better overall stability. Previously Chrome for Android was released to much fanfare, though its adoption rate has not been substantial in due part because of its restricted compatibility with previous versions of Android. Hopefully, this should change post MWC as a number of Android 4.0 devices are expected to be released. More →

Google releases Chrome browser for Android ICS; compatible with 1 percent devices, available to even fewer

Google releases Chrome browser for Android ICS; compatible with 1 percent devices, available to even fewer

Google's Chrome browser finally makes it to Android smartphones and tablets. Well, almost. Google has released a beta version of its desktop browser for Android devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), which currently makes up for just one percent of all Android devices out there. If that was not a caveat enough, Google has restricted its availability on Android Market to a few regions (India is not included), though one can always sideload it if the APK file is available. Caveats aside, initial reviews of Chrome for Android have been favorable with most users reporting brisk performance and good features. If you use Chrome on desktop and are signed into your Google account, you will get the same tabs that are open there, bookmarks and smart suggestions on your mobile device once you sign in within Chrome. Tabbed browsing is included, of course, with a simple swipe gesture across the display letting you move from one tab to another. Chrome for Android also features incognito mode for private browsing, just like the desktop version. Now all that we hope for are more Android devices getting updated to Android ICS and this becoming the default browser across Android devices. Hit the break for a few demo videos. More →
