Google Chrome for Android receives update
posted by Alan F. / Jul 12, 2013, 2:36 AM
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.

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

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...
