    As we all know Google has not yet released a version of chrome to phone for users running froyo outside of the united states. but you can still have it if you want , here is a nice tip at droidoverflow.com on how you can get it up and running on your phone.

    Are you sure about that?

    Installed just fine via the market here in the UK.

    Have it here in Ireland.
    Would like to be able to pay for apps though.

    Works quite nicely here too, Estonia ;) Few messages have been delayed though for 12+ hours, don't know why. But usually works nice. I hope there will be option to send text too, not only the URL link.

    Sort of. It's more for sending one off links/bits of text to the phone, rather than a fully fledged sync service.

    I guessed it was a wrong assumption then, but folks in non-english area do not have it in their store. as stated in the google chrome extension page. At least in finland, its not available in the market

    It's not like you even need to speak English to use it either, really. So far I've only sent links, but you just hit an unmarked button on the browser and click the notification on your phone. Can't imagine it would take long to translate.
