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.

It still needs some polish but I'm getting less annoyances than with the stock browser. Eg I no longer get blurry text while the page is loading.

The implementation of tab switching is smoother and stylish, although the horizontal swipe gesture takes some time to get used to. You have to swipe inwards from outside the screen, else you'll just drag the page content around.

As mentioned in another post above it seriously needs some kind of user agent setting to switch between mobile and desktop. Just because there's a mobile version of a site doesn't mean I want to use it, more so when more often than not I'd be missing some content and features.
