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.

No flash or user agent switching... it's like having an iPhone.

Again, the stock ICS browser works fine with Flash and it will easily allow you to do user agent switching.

I changed the user agent string a few days ago to get around a site insisting I use the mobile version.

How do these rumors even start? Was it because Adobe said they weren't going to support Flash anymore and when ICS was released it had to go all of 8 days before Adobe updated Flash to be compatible?

Sheesh.
