Google Chrome is one of the best web browsers available as of today and Google has just made it even better by releasing an Android version of the browser. Chrome for Android beta is available for download for handsets running ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) or Android 4.0. As of now it is available only in selected countries. The interface of the new Chrome for Android is very simplistic and yet has lots of features. Like the desktop version, Chrome for Android Beta is also focused on speed and simplicity and one of the most important feature is seamless sign-in and sync so you can take your personalized web browsing experience with you wherever you go, across devices.
