Google Chrome for Android gets a major update
Google has updated their Chrome browser for the Android platform. This is a major update that adds several features based on user feedback.
Google highlighted the major updates:
• You can now request the desktop version of a website, in case you would rather not view the mobile version.
• You can now add bookmarks as shortcuts on your home screen, so you can get to your favorite sites faster.
• Choose your favorite apps to handle links opened in Chrome.
• Have a proxy setup for Wi-Fi access? You can now use Chrome with the system proxy configured in Android settings.
Google also highlighted that the user-agent of the browser has also changed. This is important for developers who code mobile web apps optimized for different browsers.
With today’s update, Chrome for Android Beta is now available in 31 more languages and in all countries where Google Play is available.
