Can't wait for ICS on the Rezound so I can use this lol
I'm running this under CleanROM2.3(DeSensed) and it runs like a dream. Plus grabbing a webpage that was on my laptop and pushing it to my phone is like Sci-Fi come true. Google threw down a serious gauntlet with mobile Chrome.

As much as Google touted ICS as the game changer I have the suspicion that all good things start at 4.0. Remember the fragments code doesn't exist until Android 4

Do you know much about an app called flashify. Supposedly it lets you easily switch browsers if you come across a page in chrome with flash that you want to view. I don't know how many sites even use flash today, so it may be mostly irrelevant, but i just wondered if anyone has been using this app, and what their thoughts are.
Also are there any other quirks/issues with chrome?
There are lots of quirks with Chrome. So many so, that I've switched back to ICS Browser+. The rendering engine is completely different and ditzes out on me a bit too much for my liking in Chrome. I've heard of a few apps that allow you to switch back and forth easily for flash/non flash sites. Personally I'd rather have one browser.
Well I am glad I asked. I don't see the need for two browsers either, but there has been alot of talk about chrome recently, so i was intrigued. I will check out the ICS Browser + from the market. Honestly i have no problems with the stock browser, but i don't want to be missing out on the newest best stuff created. Thanks again for the help.
What are SID and LSID? Is it safe to give them(ICS Browser +) permission to access these.
