Google Chrome hits Android Marketplace
Only for the 1%; is it time to occupy?
A beta version of Google’s Chrome web browser has been released on the Android marketplace. The app is currently available for free, but unfortunately it is limited to those who have the latest version of the mobile operating system, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). This means that approximately 1% of Android’s users will be able to take advantage of the beta phase.

Chrome for Android was built from the ground up to suit the specifications and limitations of the small screen. In addition, it takes advantage of advancements of Ice Cream Sandwich. Tabs have been redesigned so that they fit, yet remain usable for people who like to flick between tabs. The address bar has also been redesigned to work as both a traditional address bar and a search bar. This cuts down on the amount of space required, but those who dislike Google's attempt to guess whatyou want to type are not going to like the appearance of suggestions.While users will benefit from not having to wait for their phone makers to install the browser as standard, they will have to wait until their handsets are upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich.
