Selling mobile - Google Chrome for Android Gets an Update

Google has squeezed out a cheeky little update to their Chrome browser for Android.

The new system now supports an updated range of languages, and comes equipped with a 'view desktop' option, allowing users to view a site as it appears when accessed through the original desktop version of Chrome. This comes in handy when the site you are trying to view doesn't fit particularly well on your mobile phone.

 With Google selling mobile phones at such an astonishing rate; through devices such as the Samsung Galaxy, it was vitally important that Chrome was given a wee bit of a makeover. It is possible to add Chrome shortcuts directly to your Android standby screen, allowing one-tap access to your favourite and most habitually visited websites.

 On top of this, Chrome has been re-jigged to recognise a greater number of apps which support your viewing, thus allowing you to easily leap from the browser directly to the app for further interaction

 And the improvements don’t stop there folks. Google have also added a feature to Chrome for Android that lets you use Chrome via a proxy WiFi setup. Isn’t that good of them?

 Unfortunately, Chrome for Android is currently only available for handsets running Google’s latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which is a fairly limited field at the moment, although there are a host of manufacturers who will be selling mobile devices running ICS in the not too distant future.

 If you have a device that is running Android 4.0, you can download Google Chrome for Android from the Google Play Store.
