Google introduced Chrome for Android Beta today that brings many Chrome desktop features to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phones and tablets.

Some of the Chrome for Android features include:

  •  Browse fast with accelerated page loading, scrolling, and zooming
  • Search and navigate directly from the omnibox
  • Open and switch between unlimited tabs in an easy-to-view stack
  • Send pages from desktop Chrome to your smartphone or tablet with one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline
  • Browse privately in Incognito mode
  • View open tabs: Access the tabs you left open on your computer (also signed into Chrome)picking up exactly where you left off.
  • Get smarter suggestions: If you visit a site often on your computer, you’ll also get an autocomplete suggestion for it on your mobile device, so you can spend less time typing.
  • Sync bookmarks: Conveniently access your favorite sites no matter where you are or which device you’re using.

Chrome for Android beta is said to be focused on speed and simplicity unfortunately I haven’t been able to test the beta for myself as my phones and tablet have yet to be updated to ICS.

 Chrome for Android is available, initially in Beta, on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich only. No word at this time if a version will be released to work with other than ICS. To check if it is available in your country, please visit: http://goo.gl/6ARvc
