A couple of months ago, it was mentioned that Chrome for Android will improve by “leaps and bounds“, and I guess the latest update to Chrome for Android is a step in the right direction. Today’s update will see Chrome for Android Beta being made is now available in 31 more languages, and will also be released in all countries where Google Play is available. As for the other features thrown into the mix (after listening to users’ grouses and reading their wish lists), you are now able to request the desktop version of a website if the mobile version is not your cup of tea. Apart from that, you can also add bookmarks as shortcuts on your home screen, letting you arrive at your favorite sites faster than ever before.
Not only that, you are able to select your favorite apps to handle links which are opened in Chrome, making it a whole lot easier and speedier if you are an Android power user. Website developers might want to take note of the change in the User-Agent specification for Chrome for Android Beta. You will need Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on your smartphone or tablet first before you install Chrome for Android Beta from Google Play.
