    Browse fast on your Android smartphone or tablet, and bring your personalized Chrome experience with you anywhere you go. Chrome for Android is available, initially in Beta, on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. To check if it is available in your country, please [scroll down, original link doesn't work].

    Features:

    - 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

    Just saw this on the Android Market, thought I'd share it here.

    Seems to use a better rendering engine than the stock ICS browser, but it isn't exactly smooth. That's to be expected though as it only came out yesterday and is in beta.

    Scores 343 on html5test.com (desktop chrome scores 377), 100/100 on Acid3 with a few rendering problems. Innovative tabbed browsing system. Excellent syncing with desktop chrome.

    Available Countries:
    United States
    Canada
    United Kingdom
    France
    Germany
    Spain
    Australia
    Japan
    Korea
    Mexico
    Argentina
    Brazil

    I tried to get screenshots, but I couldn't get Chrome for Android to run for more than a quarter of a femtosecond.

    Market Link (for those in official countries, try this first):https://market.android.com/details?i...android.chrome

    REMEMBER, ICS ONLY!

    Our direct download link: www.cricketusers.com/downloads/com.android.chrome-1.apk (~17mb)

    We were able to run this on our Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Hopefully we'll be posting a video about this tonight along with DLNA use on the Huawei Mercury. The program did run without any major problems for us.
