Chrome For Android Graduates From Beta

With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the Nexus 7 tablet, Google announced that it will be replacing the stock Ice Cream Sandwich browser with Chrome. Now, Google has already released a new update for Chrome for Android without the ‘beta’ tag. Yes, Chrome for Android is finally out of beta.

While there is no official change-log available for the update, the new version definitely feels a lot faster than the beta version along with reduced RAM usage on my Galaxy Nexus. Apart from this, I found no other changes in the final version compared to the previous beta version. Chrome for Android can be downloaded for free from the Google Play store.

With Chrome for Android becoming the default browser in Jelly Bean, Google has effectively killed Flash Mobile for Android. Time for web developers to shift to HTML5 based websites now.
