Google announced today that the company has released the very first beta version of its Chrome web browser for Android.  But there’s a catch, not all Android users will be able to download the new beta version of the mobile browser as its only currently only available  to the 1% of users that are currently running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on their devices. In an official Google Chrome blog post published on Tuesday, Google emphasized that the mobile browser is all about speed and simplicity. The new browser boasts seamless sign-in and sync to ensure a personalized experience across devices.

Some of the key features of the new mobile browser include

  • View open tabs: Access the tabs you left open on your computer (also signed into Chrome)—picking up exactly where you left off.
  • Get smarter suggestions: If you visit a site often on your computer, you’ll also get an auto complete suggestion for it on your mobile device, so you can spend less time typing.
  • Sync bookmarks: Conveniently access your favourite sites no matter where you are or which device you’re using.

Chrome is available for download in the Android Market for users in the U.S., Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil.
