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.

Not sure what you're doing wrong, but the stock ICS browser works fine with Flash.

Using it right now myself on a Galaxy Nexus.

Read carefully, Red Storm and I are both talking about Chrome Beta, not the stock ICS browser.

Chrome currently doesn't support changing the UA and there are no plans to support flash.

Ignoring these two missing features:
ICS stock browser < Dolphin < Chrome

If these features don't get added:
Chrome < ICS stock browser < Dolphin
