    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.
