    You can get it installed on your lucid but it is really buggy on it I had it on mine and uninstalled after I used it for 2 minutes

    It won't work on anything below ics. Any copies running on something lower is a different browser themed to look like chrome

    because thats what the compiled it for. But reasoning is prolly, it sux on memory and needs the improved memory management in ics/jb to deal with it ;)

    Somewhere else

    You need to use the Verizon Software Update Manager (the phone will install it when you tether it to your computer) to install ICS to a rooted Lucid. This will cause you to lose root, but you can get it back quite easily.
