Google brings Chrome to the mobile sector

Smartphones and tablets running the numerous incarnations of Google's Android mobile operating system already come equipped with a capable stock internet browser. However, Google is looking to shake things up a bit by providing a fully-fledged version of its Chrome browser for mobile devices.
 
Chrome for Android is meant to provide fast page rendering, intuitive search using the Chrome omnibox, and the ability to flip through multiple tabs using finger gestures. Naturally, other features like Incognito Mode and the ability to sign in to your Google account to sync open pages and bookmarks from your desktop to your smartphone and tablet are also included.

 
Chrome for Android is currently in beta and is available from the Android Market. Unfortunately, it looks as though the browser will only be available (for the time being) on smartphones and tablets running Ice Cream Sandwich.

I tried Dolphin and I tried Opera. In the end, I went back to the stock browser, I like the trick with the controls on the sides.

Try the Miren Browser. It can be changed in the settings so that it mimics Chrome, making websites think you are using a full blown desktop version of Chrome. It's how I watch Hulu on my phone.
