Google Chrome for Android receives update
You might have noticed that the Google Chrome browser for Android received an update on Thursday. The update adds a 'translation bar' that will automatically pop up when content on the screen appears in a different language than the one you picked for your default setting. Google says that the update also brought better support for languages that are read from right to left, like Hebrew.

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.
