By: Gizbot Bureau

Google has launched a new Google Chrome beta channel meant for Android phones and tablets running versions Android 4.0 and above. Developers and tech enthusiasts can check out the new features of the browser as soon as possible.

The version will have a lot of bugs since it is only the beta channel (which is actually the reason behind this new launch). In spite of that, the version will be an important one for Google since the company is trying to make the browser popular on the Android platform also, after its phenomenal success on the desktop.
