    Chrome for Android (beta) is now available in the Android Market for select phones and tablets running 4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich. We'd love to hear users feedback on the stability and performance of the browser on your device. Enjoy!!

    Dunno. I just installed from the web interface. Shows the Nexus as a compatible device there, and installs fine.

    Edit: shows up perfectly fine in the market for me.

    same.

    Going to try the browser download

    edit: Got it working through the browser url. Pretty cool how it's working on ICS, but I don't see too much of a difference between this browser and the stock ICS browser.

    Shows up for me on my phone. It's the 13th result when searching for "Chrome" in the android market app.

    Downloading now.

    Yeah I know that is where i took the link from. I was emphasizing that if you can not find it in the market click the link from the browser and it will take you there regardless.

    Downloaded and looking good! :) Question is, do you think they'll ever replace the stock browser with Chrome?

    Does it currently not support flash? Going to NHL.com on my tablet does not play videos.
    Disappointing because I really like how fast this is so far.

    I'm fooling around with it on my Xoom. Good stuff!

    However, there's no way to keep some websites from defaulting to the crappy mobile version. NPR does it whenever you select a story. I friggin' HATE that.
