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.

For me, this is certainly a "rub-it-in-your-nose" kind of announcement from Google. I have an HTC Inspire 4G that came with Gingerbread. Due to the Sense UI, there is little chance that this phone will ever get updated to ICS. It is a quite capable phone. The way Android OEM's get to treat their end-users is very frustrating. I may have to wander over to the "modders" world, but I'm a little leary of what AT&T might think of this (they are notoriously nasty about some of this from what I hear), as well as the prospect of bricking my phone. Poo!

Sense is really a shame. I have had to return my Evo 3D under warranty and got a Nexus S from my carrier as a replacement phone. The vanilla Android UI is so much better than Sense (less clutter, less dumb visual stuff, les useless crap apps)... My next phone will be one of the Nexus serie.
