Google is finally adapting its desktop browser for mobile use. Implementing Chrome into android would be a big step forwards for the mobile platform. The two different browsers that are used now already share a lot of the same code, but now they become one, synchronizing everything between pc, laptop, tablet and phone.
Chromium, the backend for the Chrome browser and a lot of other Google products like the new Chrome operating system, will finally be implemented into android. This means that you data can be synchronized to all you devices at once now. Your bookmarks will be available on your phone and your extensions will be there when you open Chrome on your tablet. It is not yet certain if android will feature plug-ins as well like the android Firefox version does, but it would be a great asset. In addition you will probably see updates to the browser way more often.
The only downside is that it will probably only be released for newer versions of Android. I would love to see the changes first hand, but I’m afraid it will have to wait until I replaced my trusty HTC Hero.
