Google Chrome on Android now in Google Play for all ICS users

If you don’t already use Google Chrome on your Mac or PC, stop reading, go and download it and then ask yourself how you browsed the web without it.

If you’ve got an Android smartphone or tablet there’s further good news with Google making Chrome available from all Google Play marketplaces and in a total of 32 languages, ditching the beta moniker at the same time. 

Okay so it’s currently in "Beta" - everything with Google always is - and your device will need to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but it’s enough to hold bragging rights over your Apple counterparts who can only enjoy a whiff of Google's electric browser.

Though the Beta version has previously been available to download in some countries, Google has updated the app giving it a wider global reach.

The app is free to download, enables multiple pages to be open at any one time and will increase the speed at which it takes websites to load, along with scrolling and zooming around a page.

You’ll be able send pages from your computer to your mobile device and vice versa as well as bookmark your favourite sites. 

You can even save pages and view them offline.

Useful should your commute to work each day include a stint on the underground.
