Good for desktop, not for phone reading I use Chrome on my computer, which is great. And the app is fast and streamlined. However, I do a lot of reading on my phone and Chrome is NOT friendly towards that. Wish they, like other browsers, utilized the pinch gesture to quickly zoom in and out of text then have the text automatically resize to fit the screen. Also utilizing the volume up and down buttons to quickly scroll through websites would be great. Until then, this pre-installed app on my phone is only bloatware to me.
Google for Android is awesome So fast and voice commands are spot on !!! Google is amazing and has helped people who have limited access to educational tools such as, encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauruss, etc. It's amazing how it bases your search results off of your previously made searches and personally provides a search engine based on your personal interests and searches. Ex: if you search for history on the history channel website. After while, whenever you search 4 historical information. Hist. channel will be your 1st result!
Better than other mobile browsers...which really isn't saying much Android apps are all crap, but Chrome is rises to the top of the mobile browser pile (not hard to do given its competition). Extremely fast start-up, loading, and rendering. Intuitive UI. Lack of selective script and IP blocking causes minor annoyances. No API for add-ons. Continues to process info when device is in stand-by mode, resulting in significant battery loss. A three-star app, but the author is freakin Google. A billion dollar company can do better.
Doesn't Get Better Than This Browser! I am a former Firefox faithful user, but with recent upgrades to Google Chrome, I have now installed and exclusively use Google Chrome on all of my internet devices for stability and integration with other Google apps. Plus with available extensions, you can really personalize Google Chrome to fit your exact needs.
Wtf is up with full page hijack ads Wtf is up with these browser redirects ads that have the ability or opportunity to turn on my phone's vibration function. How is this behavior permissible on a piece of software so widely used? This issue has been on the bug tracker for over a year, and still not addressed.
FULL SCREEN VIDEOS NOT WORKING When I try to use full screen mode, the video freezes, but the sound continues. I have to reload the site in order for even the normal screen mode to function. The is only a recent issue. Chrome is the best browser and I would gladly give it 5 stars if this issue is fixed.
