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?

Because it is easier to do a progressive (country-by-country but it could be device-by-device) rollout instead of crashing the servers with downloads and the developpers'mail inbox with bug reports. Ask any popular app developper.

Seriously? Google has probably enough bandwidth to DDoS several whole countries (at the same time) out of web existence...
And their support is marginal, largely user-generated, anyway.
