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.

Sencha problems with Android browser

It's funny this news came out now. Over the last week I've been following the problems the Sencha developers (who make sencha touch) have been having with Android's current browser.

This is what they originally posted:

We’ve always treated the browser in Android 3.x as fundamentally broken, and do not plan to officially support it in Touch 2. We are currently working on improving performance in Android 4.0 – the Ice Cream Sandwich release. So far, we have found no acceptable mechanism to achieve fast and flicker-free animations. We have filed a bug with a simplified test case showing poor performance on a variety of mechanisms with the Android bug list.

Today, though, they say that it's been patched, but they still have some problems. See this post:

So maybe most of these problems will disappear with chrome coming on board.
