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?

Google seems to push Chrome on their new Nexus devices. I don't think it's ready quite yet. On my Galaxy Nexus, the stock browser gives a better exprrience. Sync is the only thing I like more about Chrome. As a web developer targeting mobile devices, I see many more bugs, stuttering, weird behaviour etc in Chrome than in the stock browser on 4.1. Why doesn't Google just use the stock browser to render web pages, and build the Chrome interface on top of that? They do it on iOS. To me, it looks like the Chrome browser uses a different engine, because it has different bugs.

By the way, I don't understand the buzz about Firefox. Try developing a modern touch friendly HTML 5 app for it. For instance CSS 3 animations stutters like hell. The more people thatuse it, and similarly bad browser like Opera, the more difficult it is to be a web developer.
