APP: Chrome beta



As a Google product, Chrome is the perfect browser for Android and since it comes pre-installed on most phones, it is something that most people are familiar with. Chrome Beta is currently among the best Android browser app because it is just the, ahem, better version of the browser we already love.
The good
Minimal UI: Chrome’s overall UI has remained stable since version 1.0, a minimal two-row window with tabs resting above the address bar (Omnibox), three browser controls (Back, Forward, Stop/Reload), a star-shaped toggle for bookmarking, and a settings icon. Chrome beta is minimal for a reason to maintain a clean browsing experience with maximum screen space for websites.
Incognito mode: Incognito is Chrome’s response to Mozilla’s Private Browsing feature. Incognito opens a new window that disables history recording and tracking cookies, and reduces the amount of traceable breadcrumbs.
Dev tools: Under the hood, Chrome beta has some awesome features that make it developer-friendly, hardware acceleration for rendering 3D CSS effects; Google’s own NaCl (Native Client), which allows secure execution of C and C++ codes within the browser; and an in-house JavaScript engine that improves load times with every release.
The bad
Internet Explorer: If you run an older computer, you may have to use Internet Explorer’s insecure browser to get Chrome. Try not to stay in those waters for too long.
