It has been long since the Google Chrome app for tablets and Smartphones was in the lime light. However, with the latest announcement of the Google I/O event, that is said to blend with the iPhone and iPad, it looks like the Google Chrome app for Android is going to climb back to its top spot. Let us review the most prominent features of the world’s most popular browser app for Android.
The physical specifications of the test tablet include a 1 GHz Alwinner A10 Chipset, Android 4.0.4 ICS, Mali 400 MP1 GPU, a 7”800×480 display, and a 512 MB RAM. The first impression you will get on working with Google Chrome is its striking resemblance to the Stock ICS browser. Why not have those resemblances when both were formulated by Google? But one noteworthy factor that differentiates the two is their speed; Google Chrome loads much faster than the Stock ICS browser. This very fact reminds us of Google Chrome’s first public launch on the desktop edition when it had a super-fast start-up function.
What does the first browsing impression of the Google Chrome app on Android suggest? While the start-up is quick, the page rendering is tad slow with this browser. Scrolling through heavily loaded websites might be slow, and sometimes can be unresponsive as well. However, the loading is much quicker with the lightly-loaded websites.
The Google Chrome app on Android would give you a simple and intuitive online experience. Sign in to Google Chrome, open and swap between multiple tabs on your browser, access your bookmarks, passwords, and data from your PC to your Smartphone or tablet with ease. Swap between multiple tabs and carry on from where you left the last time. Transfer chunks of data from your system’s Google Chrome to your Smartphone or tablet’s Google Chrome with a single click and read them when you are offline literally from anywhere and anytime. The Google Chrome app on Android also encompasses reliable privacy options to give you a safe and secured online browsing experience.
Just install the Flash media player on your Android device and this browser will play High Definition videos smoothly on your screen. Watching online videos on any of the world’s most popular sites such as YouTube and Metacafe with this browser would give you an enthralling experience. Voice search is one attractive feature of the Chrome app that works like a charm on tablets and Smartphones. Unlike most voice recognition software, this one picks up even the most difficult-to-understand English accent. Incognito Browsing works like a charm, very similar to the one you get in the desktop version.
The browser is easy-to-navigate, and lets you load, zoom and scroll down pages fast. Despite the fact that, this is Google Chrome’s first stable launch, the app is bug-free. However, one thing that you need to look out for is the frequent crashes that you might encounter when you want to access the ‘settings’ option.
In conclusion, the Google Chrome app is a great browser to use on Android/iOS. It looks like this one will meet the sky-high expectations of the public.
