Chrome 61 for Android released, here is what's new

The Android version of Chrome has just been updated with a couple of new features. After making its debut on Windows, Mac, and Linux earlier this week, Chrome 61 will be rolled out to Android devices in the coming weeks.

According to the official changelog published by Google, Chrome 61 for Android is supposed to translate pages with a more compact and intuitive toolbar. Basically, websites that are not in the same language as the device's will bring up a tool that allows you to translate that page faster and easier.

Furthermore, users will now be able to pick images to post online with an improved image picker. You'll notice that there's a new menu that shows up when you press and hold on a link or image, which is meant to make it more intuitive.

Also, the developers mention that this release includes many performance and stability fixes, so if you want more in-depth details about them, don't forget to check out the source link below.

Finally, Google confirmed that while Chrome 61 for Android has been released, the new version of the browser will be available on Google Play “over the course of the next few weeks.”

Writing anti Samsung comments on daily basis makes you have orgasm. You must be a kid who doesn't wanna grow up.

Nothing comes close to the Samsung mobile browser. Say what you want but Samsung offers the best mobile browser and keyboard and dialer as well.

I have to agree that I like using the Samsung browser best. Mostly for the ad blocking and iris sign-in. But they have a lot of other little features that are really nice.

Using the Samsung browser on my XZ Premium. It's fantastic. I've completely disabled Chrome.

Samsung has most of their own apps, they make a mobile browser for Android. It's compatible with most phones now that it's in the play store.

Safari is the best mobile and desktop browser. No browser is faster. Samsung might has the best browser for Android though.

Chrome has steadily gone downhill, sucks on desktop and phone. Samsung far superior on Android.
