    Though it isn't official yet, a recent change to the Chromium revision log shows that work to bring Chrome to Android is well under way. This means we may be seeing it very soon! Perhaps in time for launch with a new Nexus device?

    We know many users have been waiting for Chrome, what features are you looking forward to or expect?

    i hope it includes the functionality like the Firefox app where you can sync everything and access everything across your computers and your phone. I see no reason why it wouldn't so this is definitely a good thing haha

    Chrome just became my browser of choice replacing Opera. I've had Chrome since it launched but it wasn't my #1.

    I've used Chome for ages now. I love the sync feature. I have an app on my phone that lets me see my favorites and then it will launch the browser, but having them in the browser would be even better.

    At the very least I want it to be the stock Android browser with the addition of tabs and a persistent user agent setting.

    I will definitely try it. Dolphin has been screwing up since they did a big update a couple months ago. Hopefully Chrome will replace my Bing ridden LG Revolution Browser.

    I was wondering when someone at Google would have that face palm moment

    When you think about it I do find it kind of odd that since Android is a Google OS that Chrome isn't the stock browser , let alone not even being available.

    Can't wait. The almost flawless settings between the multiple computers I use with Chrome is very handy.
