Google Chrome To Arrive In A Few Weeks For Android Users

Google's mobile phone browser is now in full testing phase and the person responsible for this project promises that it is only "a matter of weeks", before the official release. The browser is in beta, and it still has some bugs and issues to be solved.

Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Chrome and Apps, has explained the project status. "We launched beta 2. We addressed a few things," has said Pichai, without getting too much into the problems that still need to be sorted out.

"Mainly right now, I'm driven by bug quality and stability. We are triaging, tracking, and trying to make it very stable. It is in a matter of weeks", he has also added.

Just a week ago, Google pushed (opens in new tab) out a new update of Chrome for Android. Among the improvements, the official blog mentions, is support for 31 more languages, a number of features requested by the users - including access to desktop versions of websites, with the option to add bookmarks, as shortcuts on the home screen.

The first beta of Chrome for Android was released in February, where users have sent positive feedback since then.

Chrome for Android, the beta version, only runs on a select number of devices - as it just supports Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
