This may sound great, but this beta release of the Chrome browser will replace the existing version in the Android operating system, but only those running the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android and at the moment, that is not very many devices. In fact, it is estimated that only around one per cent of all Android powered devices are able to make use of this new browser, but naturally, this figure will improve with time.
According to a post on the Official Chrome Blog by Sundar Pichai, the SVP for Chrome and Apps;
In 2008, we launched Google Chrome to help make the web better. We’re excited that millions of people around the world use Chrome as their primary browser and we want to keep improving that experience. Today, we’re introducing Chrome for Android Beta, which brings many of the things you’ve come to love about Chrome to your Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone or tablet. Like the desktop version, Chrome for Android Beta is focused on speed and simplicity, but it also features seamless sign-in and sync so you can take your personalized web browsing experience with you wherever you go, across devices.
