Chrome Browser for Android updated to version 43; here's the changelist
Google is polishing up the Chrome once again, and the Android variant of the browser is being updated to version 43, or 43.0.2357.78 to be exact. The updated app should hit the Google Play Store within days, and promises to speed up the checkout time for Google Wallet users. The browser will have secure checkout forms ready for you, with data taken from Google Wallet.

The update will also allow Google Chrome to be an English teacher of sorts. If you come across a word or phrase that sounds Greek to you, touch it on your screen and you will be shown the meaning of the word or the phrase in question. There also will be the usual bug fixes and performance improvements to make the browser even more zippier.

Chrome Browser for Android is available at the Google Play Store for those using Android 4.1 or higher. If you already have Chrome on your handset, you can visit the Google Play Store and go to My apps to see if the browser is ready to be updated. 

Download the Chrome Browser now! (Android)

Chrome used to have a very quick cold startup, now it's pretty much the same as IE, even a warm start takes considerably time.

I really liked chrome but for the last few months I can't read articles on this website without constantly being redirected to some game in play store. That's without clicking anything. I never had this issue with Firefox.

Chrome sucks on desktop now. They removed support for Java and Unity Web Player. They say it raises security risks. Well security risks my arse.

It also eats even more memory and freezes a lot. Not my go-to browser anymore.


It was so much better few versions ago. Now its bloated with many important features like NPAPI and Click to play removed. I request them not to take technology backwards.

Out of curiosity, what is your reasoning behind making a "PATRIOT" account?


To spread the tech love around all the countries of the world. Everyone deserves to use the latest and greatest tech.

The reason why i use chrome for pretty much all my devices, it just has soo many functionality. It's also hard to switch to another browser when all my folders, bookmarks. google keep, google drives etc. are already in sync across all my devices.

I will wait and see if the new version is stable enough.

I just hope they make M stable.


I too hope that m8. Every OS needs to be stable and have the features users need. Having some bugs is inevitable but it should be minimum and less affecting as possible.
