Google Chrome for Android receives update
In addition, Google has added an experimental data compression service. Similar to the way that the Opera mini browser delivers web pages through its Turbo feature, compressing the data will allow you to read web pages faster and in the long run, should save you some money. You also will use lower amounts of data while surfing the web. Another part of the update to Google Chrome allows the browser to switch to full-screen mode.
The update and the app itself are both free downloads, both available from the Google Play Store.

Google is quietly updating it's services more significantly than what a 4.2 to 4.3 OS jump would make.

You would give a crap if it involved Apple somehow. Way to have double standards. Way. To. Go! *golfclap*

This isn't about Nokia. This article is about Google.
Guess what... Not every article has to mention Nokia. Get over it.

why the hell did they mentioned opera in google article?

Because Opera is a mobile browser that is actually relevant.

Cause Opera mini is commonly known to just about everyone, its featured on I think all major OS including Symbian, Nokia devices browsers were pathetic compared to opera mini

I had a nokia phone, and guess what, I had the opera mini on it!

No, flash is slow and isn't in the future of the web anymore, it demands too much of the phone. so Google gave up on it.
But I understand your desire, but remember, every time that you cant access a web site because of flash, don't hate chrome, just hate the website that didn't move on. It's for a better web.

The only thing I absolutely hate about Chrome that Opera has, is the "request desktop site" which is not a permanent setting...
And everytime I have to check to use it...
Opera lets you set webpages as desktop permanently... and it is the way I like to browse...
