Now, here’s a new twist. If Android isn’t making its way to Chrome, then here’s the other way round. When you get to think about a mobile browser for Chrome and a separate beta browser, it is apparent that the Chrome team is piping up to something really exciting, but what’s exciting about it is really a mystery.
Chrome and its beta, way again
Now, the Chrome browser that you got for Android is not that old, or was a beta for quite long. It was sent through various paces and speed and then sent out to users. Now, Chrome is almost duplicated to a new beta, which actually does something new. So, what is this new all about? Well, some say that it has got to do with full-screen functionality, and that is something really awesome.
So why a new version is required aside the stable version that is already into existence? Now, when Chrome was released for Android, the beta version was 25, which is same as the desktop variant of Chrome. Now, the stable version of Chrome was release 18 and Google preferred to update Chrome within the same span of 6 weeks. Now, with that said, this move is definitely said to satisfy Google’s plan and that both the versions for the desktop and the Android are in the same plane, however, the beta is still being a little messed up.
The similar version of Google Chrome is said to solve an update issue, but there are impacts more than that. The same version of Chrome, which gets updated at the same time, set with the same features projects that Google prefers to have the same browser ideal for different platforms. Now, we all love cross platform stuff, don’t we? And this time maybe Google is just trying to sneak up a way of performing their beta testing.
The other platforms
There are other platforms that take advantage of the web apps instead of the native apps, for instance, Ubuntu and Firefox. These are the two platforms where there is a marked cross platform implication, although they cannot be compared to Chrome and Google. Web apps can be quite cumbersome, nevertheless the compatibility with devices is more of a welcome feature. This also makes mobile-based Chrome a more convenient option and something that suits the need of a larger kind.
Another feature to note would be the integration of the Android keyboard with Chrome, which makes it more ideal and viable for a different range of audience altogether, the enterprise segment of the population. The more the pointers for the version, the more organizations will begin to look at it and see the benefit of it within their services. However, the recent Quickoffice acquisition by Google has framed another battle ground for them and Google is definitely targeting at controlling it.
So, where is this all heading to? Well, no one has an answer for now. Follow the crumbs and wait.
