Google has updated its Chrome for Android browser with a significant number of new features.
It’s added 31 more languages and brought the update to every country where Google Play is available (although it’s worth noting you’ll need an Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich – to get the new version).
And if you’re frustrated by being directed to mobile sites when you want the full-fat original, Chrome for Android now lets you bypass the redirect without using a third-party app, a particular boon for tablet users.
For navigation, the ‘omnibox’ now takes URLs and search queries, plusGoogle has made it easier to switch between unlimited stacked tabs. And syncing with your desktop has been made easier, as has making pages available for offline reading.
There’s also a load of customisation tweaks, including the ability to add bookmarks as homescreen icons and choose which apps you’d like to use to open different types of links. Incognito mode has been taken mobile, too.
Flash is still not supported. The upgrade is currently in beta.
