Google Updated Chrome Beta For Android

By admin

About a week ago Google started the Chrome Beta program that involves Android 4.0 ICS (and above) phone owners that will test the pre-release builds of the Google Chrome browser. Now Google has updated the Chrome Beta: the update has fixed a number of known bugs and added some new features like the ability to edit

Here’s the full list of fixes:

164632 – Edit Bookmark is broken
167351 – Youtube video controls are lost after returning from fullscreen
167016 – Some Samsung Galaxy S2 freezes
168062 – Double tapping on non-zoomable sites scrolls the page to the top briefly before returning to original position
167379 – Sometimes tabswitcher is frozen
166998 – Tab content stretched out while returning to it through side swipe gesture
168632 – Crash – Stack Signature: TabAndroidImpl::FromWebContents
168388 – Sync signed in info text’s font size is too small
168430 – Bookmark star icon doesn’t turn grey/white immediately after bookmarking URL /deleting URL from bookmarks

Yet Google’s Chrome Beta still has a number of known issues that haven’t been fixed yet:

Performance is sluggish, noticeably on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S
Frequent freeze on devices with specific versions of Qualcomm GPU driver
Text autosizing may break formatting on some sites
Video continues playing after exiting fullscreen on android phones
[HTC Droid DNA] Getting crash on tabswitcher mode
163439 – page links are not working
166233 – Cannot submit comments on facebook posts or pictures
165244 – Text handler jumps or disappears when moving
162486 – iframe scrolling broken
158633 –  Tap disambiguation overaggressive
169910 – Flickering while opening new tab

You can also download and test this browser app right away – just visit the Google Play store. However, you should keep in mind that it’s a beta version, so it’s quite buggy at the moment.
