Default Chrome to Mobile Beta [Google Chrome Extension]

This is NOT Chrome for Android.

Extension for Google Chrome, Chrome to Mobile Beta is for ICS phones and tablets only.

This is kind of like Chrome to Phone, but a little better. Just wanted others users to know.

Send web pages from Chrome on your computer to Chrome on your phone or tablet.
Ever find yourself reading a page or looking at a map on your desktop and wanting a fast way to get that same page on your phone or tablet?

Chrome to Mobile enables you to send a live URL from Chrome on your computer to your Android device (requires Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich"). Optionally, you can choose to send a copy for offline viewing.

Here's how:

* Install the Chrome to Mobile extension in desktop Chrome.

* Install and sign in to Chrome for Android Beta on your phone or tablet. Visit: google.com/chrome/android

* Click on the phone icon in the desktop omnibox to send the current page to your phone or tablet.

* Check "also send copy for offline viewing" and a copy of your web page, including text and pictures, will be downloaded to your phone or tablet so you will have access to it even when you are offline.

The extension requires a phone or tablet on Android 4.0 or higher, Ice Cream Sandwich, with Chrome for Android Beta installed.

For more information, please visit the Help Center: Chrome to Mobile Beta extension - Google Chrome Help

Click "Thanks" if I helped you. Thanks.

Just got it working. Pretty cool!

No need to use android chrome for the browser(of course you still have to be signed in via android chrome), the links sent via chrome to mobile will open with your default browser, or you get to choose.
