Chrome to Android to have better sync soon

The Google Chrome web browser is one of the most advanced and the most powerful browsers that I have used so far. The options and the feature set that the Chrome offers have been just unbeatable. That is the reason there are so many Chrome users compared to other browsers. No doubt that there are other good browsers, for example, Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox, but Chrome has been my most preferred browser ever since it was released.

The browser offers features such as auto form filling and auto login, which save me a ton of time every single day. But these features have been present on the desktop version of the web browser only. But now, Google has updated the Chrome for Android app and these awesome features come to the mobile version of the web browser as well.

The search engine giant has been testing the beta version of the Chrome of Android (version 26) for some time now, and it looks like most of the features present in the beta release seem to have not made it to the final release of the app today. Apart from the password synchronization and auto form filling, there are many unnamed security and stability updates. There was one bug which would just present a blank screen instead of loading the current URL, and this bug seems to have been fixed with this new release. CNET writes:

Some features that made it into the beta version of Chrome 26 for Android don’t appear to be in today’s stable release. These include server-accelerated browsing using a proxy, Google’s SPDY technology, and rudimentary support for Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC).

Unlike many other web browsers available for Android, Google’s Chrome needs you to have at least Android 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich to be able to install the app on your Android device.
