    Just installed Chrome to Phone and although its a great feature in 2.2 it is a bit hit and miss. out of about 10 websites i tested to send to my phone 2 were successful, and sending a googlemaps page to open maps on the phone didn't work at all.
    Anyone getting better results than me?


    update-the maps page came through after a few minutes. very cool :)

    oh yea, forgot about that. Just downloading the app now to test it out. Apparently you can get the extension for firefox as well, which is what I use. Anyone know to get that?

    If you want to get the firefox extension you can just google chrome to phone for firefox, should be the top link called "send to phone" works great for me.

    Works fine for me, always sends the website through although normally I need to "wake" the phone so get it to come through, the only issue Ive found is that it wont send routes from maps from maps.google.co.uk but it works fine from .com.

    I tried to download chrome to phone apk and it gives me an parse error. I did, however, get linkpush to work (does the same thing).

    edit: I'm an idiot. I was trying to install it on my Droid X (which is still 2.1) instead of my EVO (2.2). It installed and so far works just fine.

    Been using it for a while now (rooted) and it seems to work perfectly fine. I haven't tried maps or anything but websites work well.

    Didn't work straight away for me. Tried sending 3 sites, and it took about 5-10 minutes for all 3 to come through. Did it about an hour later when I sent a link to an app to my phone to download it through my phone, and my phone received the link almost instantly.

    Sounds good, have seen this on Youtube, but not sure what to search for in the market?, I use Firefox so will use the link provided, but just the app for the phone, any tips on what to search for?.

    Cheers,

    I got the stuff off this link.

    Use the QR code in the 1.6 .apk link for your phone, then just download the .crx file and install it with Chrome browser. Not sure where the extension is for Firefox.
