Google Chrome is coming to Android

Back in September 2008, Google released two important products that shortly become widely used and very popular worldwide: the Android platform which owns most of the smartphone market this days and Chrome, one of the most popular web browser on the planet, actually, the third most widely used, just behind the second place Firefox browser.

As expected by many, Chrome will be launched for Android too and it might happen in October 11. The information comes from Chromium Code website where we also found out that the Android version of Chrome will include most desktop functions and support for 2D Skia – a complete 2D graphic library for drawing Text, Geometries, and Images that Google has been hard at work on.

Skia features include:

  • 3×3 matrices w/ perspective
  • antialiasing, transparency, filters
  • shaders, xfermodes, maskfilters, patheffects

Back to October 11, Google has an event partner with Samsung with the debut of Nexus Prime and Ice Cream Sandwich and maybe, Chrome for Android makes an appearance. I believe that the Android version Chrome will be available through Android Market and it will also come as an option to the stock Android browser right out of the box for the latest version of Android, but this is just a hunch.

Browse secure with Comodo Dragon

Comodo Dragon is a free browser based on the Chromium technology that offers all the basic Google’s Chrome features plus an additional level of security and privacy. For instance if you visit a site that has a domain certificate, Comodo browser can make the difference between a superior and an inferior SSL certificate and notifies the user about this. From the privacy point of view, the Comodo browser will not connect to remote servers to report errors from your computer. Instead it returns error messages found on your computer so that it prevents the download tracking.

Besides its additional security and privacy modules, Comodo Dragon looks good using some fresh new browsing icons that improves not only the look of it but also increases simplicity. Without any extensions support or live bookmark sync, Comodo has a reduced memory footprint compared to the standard version of Chrome. But if you decide to choose simplicity and usability against complexity, the lack of these Chromium features is excusable.

If you are not sure if this browser is worth enough to try it out you should take in consideration two other important things. When installing the application you have the option to choose for a portable version of the program. You can also import your history, password, cookies and other settings from your current browser into Comodo. So there is nothing to make you not want it.
