Google Back when I reviewed the Nexus 7, I mentioned that I was disappointed with Chrome for Android. It often felt slow, would hang, and typing in the address bar and input fields on webpages would lag. Scrolling wasn't always optimal, and sometimes, it would simply freeze up altogether. We're several months down the line now - has the situation improved for me?

I probably get on my soapbox ... just about now.

Unfortunately for a mobile web developer webkit based browsers are the IE6 of web on mobile mainly because lazy web devs, that use the -webkit prefixes instead of the standard compliant syntax (and gracefully degrading on other browsers).

I wrote a whole blog post about it here. My personal belief is that CSS browser specific extensions should only function when the browser is put into "development" context ... but this will never happen.
