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.

Amazon Instant Video, for example, only works on flash on Android because it has yet to have a dedicated app.

There are still videos on YouTube that don't work on flash.


This is incredibly bizarre. Amazon Instant Video has been on iOS for ages, and you figure that most of the legwork getting it to work on Android has been done given that it works on the Kindle Fire. Amazon really should release a dedicated app to work on other Android devices.

Point me to a Youtube video that doesn't work on Flash, I haven't found one in years, ditto any other major website that serves video. Flash has been irrelevant on mobile for ages, and Amazon Instant Video on Android aside (again, bizarre) I don't see any missing gaps. Well, I do know some specific examples like the GSL Starcraft video page not working with Android, but again that is a very specific thing. Its also pretty standard given that iOS is still the main target for compatibility with web and app developers.

PS - Chrome rules!
