We had the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 tablet for testing last week and we took our time to also review an app or two. Among them there was Chrome for Android, the browser that everyone is talking about. Available now in beta phase, the browser may freeze sometimes and it may lag, but we can see that the idea behind is great.
It sticks to the same interface and tab system as the desktop version and it offers a nifty experience based on syncing. Chrome for Android has an unlimited tab system, one that supports swiping to pass from one to tab to another easily. There’s also the option to open an incognito tab and browse the web without cookies and registering your searches. The most interesting aspect in the whole thing is that you can sync your bookmarks from the Chrome on the desktop and your open tabs with the Chrome on Android.
You can also install a minor add-on to the desktop Chrome, that will allow you to send a web page open in a tab straight to the phone. A phone icon will appear in the web browser, next to the bookmark star sign and pressing that you’ll see the device you have synced with your Gmail account and send the page straight away.
