New features are expected with browser alignment

The problem with having many different versions of a specific web browser, such as Chrome, across different platforms is that they may not all have the same functionality at any given time. Google is working to fix that problem with a push to align versions of the Chrome browser across all platforms.

Google has announced that all versions of Chrome will be aligned across all platforms by early 2013.
 

The Chrome team said, "We expect an update to Chrome for Android starting with a developer update to happen before the end of the year, and we’re actively working towards aligning releases across all platforms, including Android, starting early next year."

It's unclear exactly what this alignment will mean for the Android version of Chrome. Chrome on Android fans might be getting things such as better plug-in support, extensions, and more API functionality. With no specifics offered, only time will tell.
 
Chrome became available for Android devices in February and for iOS devices this past summer.

No it's not that simple.

What happens when you need to access a website on the go and they're still using Flash. You can scream at the web master all you want, but you're still stuck.

Yes, this is a real scenario. While on travel, a friend and I wanted tickets to an event, but she couldn't order them on her iPhone. I was able to, but only because my phone supported it. Should that website have been updated to HTML5? Absolutely. But that doesn't help you right now, does it?

While I'm all for the phasing out of Flash, it still needs to be supported for those times when you need it.
