Quick Note: Google Aims to Align All Versions of Chrome for All Platforms

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

You obviously haven't done much web work.. Most of my time coding styles I spend just trying to get them to work the same across all browsers, as each has their own special css properties which must be used (moz-, webkit-, khtml-, etc -- most are gone in modern versions, though most users never update). Add on top of that, the most popular browser is still IE6 -- so add in a bunch more tricks to do simple things like using transparent PNG's and GIF's. Backwards compatibility is a hell of a lot more important than 'forwards-compatibility'.
Finally, the HTML5 spec isn't even close to finished yet! Devs have been sitting on their hands for years, leaving it to programmers from companies like Google and Apple to lend a helping hand to make sure it eventually gets certified. <Video> is the only useful addition so far (don't get me started on <canvas>), and nobody can even decide on what codec standards to use yet! Codec woes, or flash.. give me flash.
