  • With the huge number of Google announcements at I/O 2012, it was bound that Chrome would find itself on the list. It appears that Chrome for Android has left beta phase and reached a stable channel release, version number 18.0.1025123, now available for download on Google Play Store.

    The browser still requires Android 4.0 ICS or later and focuses on stability and performance fixes in this latest release, especially compared to the last beta. Minor interface improvements are also available, especially for tablets. Among the problems found till now users mentioned the font and language issues, with font size being inconsistent on some sites, like Reddit or T-Mobile for example. On tablets in landscape mode pages were zoomed by default, which was another bug in Chrome for Android. You can find a full list here.

    On the good side, you get things like faster search and navigation directly from the same box and users can choose from the results that appear as they type. They can also browse faster thanks to accelerated page loading, scrolling and zooming. Switching between an infinite number of tabs is also promised in Chrome for Android and on your device you can flip through tabs like you would with a deck of cards. There’s also the ability to sync pages and settings between your desktop Chrome and your Android one.

    You can download Chrome for Android from here.
