Google So, how long have we been waiting for this to happen? Google has finally unveiled the future if the Android browser: it has no future. Google unveiled Chrome for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and has designated it as the future default browser for the Android platform.

Why on earth is this Chrome release country restricted?

This sort of balkanization really rubs me the wrong way and I don't see this mentioned on any news story about the subject.

Luckily it's a good thing Android is a fairly open OS and you can install whatever you want on it as long as you tick the box stating you take full responsibility if it decides to kill your cat and set fire to your house as a result of all the nefarious code you'll run (or something). And obviously it didn't take long for someone to pull the .apk
