    Default Chrome for ICS

    Is there any reason not to make this the default internet browser? I love it so far.

    Flash is hardwired into chrome for computers is it not on this version?

    I'm loving it so far!

    Yeah, I'm having a flash issue (I think?) to. Load espn in the stock browser and in chrome...the stock browser loads a more "feature rich" site.

    I don't like that the top bar stays there. Is there a way to hide it like the default browser.

    It threw me off when I saw this. I always thought the default browser in Android was supposed to be "Chrome for Android". It already had several of the features (chrome syncing, incognito mode, etc.) I'll have to download this and try it out

    This web browser is nice.... I will definitely miss quick controls though... Is there a way to view the desktop version of webpages in this app? I can't seem to find it.

    There doesn't seem like there is one. I can't imagine them not adding that in later versions.

    I can say I never had so much fun tabbing between pages.

    Does anyone frequent ESPN mobile? The version Chrome is loading has less features than the version the stock browser pulls up. Anyone find a way to remedy this?

    I never go there because of the ScoreCenter app.

    That's unfortunate, I use that feature a lot (especially on my tablet). Oh well, I'll keep this browser, but it won't be my main browser until that feature is added

    Other than that, I'm liking the browser a lot!

    Hmm...all the sudden Chrome is loading the better mobile version. Who knows.

    I just can't seem to appreciate the Scorecenter app...I feel like it's both slow to load and get the latest content.

    I love it. I wonder if this will become standard in future GN updates. I prefer it to the default browser.

    Default Re: Chrome for ICS

    I like it, mainly due to having tabs, and because the functionality matches Chrome on my other devices/PC's.

    But, until they build in Flash support and allow the ability to bypass mobile-only pages I'll retain both browsers. There are some sites that I frequent that simply cannot build a decent mobile app alternative to their desktop offerings.

    I agree. It can be EXTREMELY slow and laggy.

    Im loving it but will probably not make it as my daily browser. I love quick controls to much. I only like using desk top sites. Browser + is still my #1

    I see all the comments about desktop vs mobile sites, but I'm getting the desktop version of websites anywhere I go... I haven't done anything special...
