Chrome for Android Beta hands-on [Video]

Google has released their first ever version of Chrome for Android today. Bringing their full-fledged browser to the world of Android smartphones and tablets. While currently only available for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices (and a beta) we were excited to give it a quick try. Below you'll see our first impressions, hands-on pictures, video, benchmarks and more.

Firefox 10 update hits Android Market, Flash still missing

For all those users of the popular Firefox browser for Android we have good news today. Firefox 10 has just landed in the market and the update is available now thanks to Mozilla. Along with tons of improvements to overall stability and performance we have a faster and easier set up and sync, but Adobe's Flash Player is still missing.

Expand Ice Cream Sandwich’s web capabilities with Browser+

The web browser built in to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rocks. It's so fast and stable that it easily beats out any of the third-party alternatives, and new features like a Chrome bookmark sync, built-in full screen and a Desktop mode mean you won't need the extra features in apps like Dolphin Browser HD. But even the best can be improved upon, and thanks to Android's open-source nature, it has. Browser+ is now available for free in the Android Market, building a few handy extra features into Ice Cream Sandwich's built-in browser.

Firefox Android tablet UI comes out of beta

As a dedicated user of Firefox on the desktop, I keep a close eye on Mozilla's Android version of the browser. Unfortunately their efforts on the mobile platform have been somewhat underwhelming so far, with two primary complaints being sluggish performance and a head-scratching interface. The recent release of Firefox 9 on the desktop has been mirrored by the mobile version, and now the updated tablet interface has been pushed out. The Honeycomb-friendly UI will be familiar to anyone who's spent time in third-party Honeycomb app.

Dolphin Browser HD updates with bookmark sync

I've always found that one of the most frustrating things about constantly flashing new ROMs is that I have to set up non-Google apps like third party browsers all over again. Today that process gets a little easier in one of Android's most popular browsers, Dolphin. Dolphin HD7 includes a bookmark sync feature, backing up your bookmarks to Dolphin's servers, not unlike Chrome or Firefox Sync.

Samsung Galaxy S II vs iPhone 4S browser comparison and load times [Video Updated]

The iPhone 4S is finally here and while we don't have a 5 to compare things to, we do have the 4S to throw up against the Samsung Galaxy S II for a few browser load times and overall performance tests as I'm sure plenty are interested in seeing the results. I always told myself I'd never use the word "iPhone" in a title here at Android Community but this isn't about me -- its for you, the readers. A little friendly competition is always nice right? Because where would we all be without it -- probably still using Nokia candy bar phones daily. Enough of that, check out our video below.
