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.

Tsss, I understand people complaining about the delay to get security fixes, but this is sounding more and more like whiny ADHD kids unable to wait more than five seconds before getting their christmas gifts. You know hat whining will get you? Google holding on updates even more. After all, that is what Apple is doing: iOS 6 is already done, but nobody knows it, thus nobody whines about it. Then only developpers will have it, and nobody will whine either.

Because these "nobodies" are not forced to wait a half of year after the official release to update their devices.

And most of this difference is only du to when they make it "official". iOS6 is already done, why don't you ask for it? Oh, right, it is not ""official"".

Eh, well, if this only works under ice cream sandwich, considering that it took my last phone (Droid Incredible) about 9 months just to get gingerbread, a lot of these people are going to be waiting a long time, and some of them will be waiting until they get their next phone.

However, now I'm rocking a Galaxy Nexus, so I'm good ;)
