    It does to an extent. There are some minor graphical glitches, especially when using keyboards like SwiftKey.

    I'll post a APK of the Chrome version that works perfectly with our phone. Latest one(Sept 26) has graphic glitches.

    Please do not. We do not permit users to re-distribute apps they did not author. This also applies if you tell people that they can PM you for the link. If there are errors with an app, I would suggest you write to the author of the app or leave feedback on the review to post bug reports.

    I am using Google Chrome on my One V. One of the things which I am not liking is that whenever I open Chrome it always load the last page I was browsing. I cannot find the setting where Chrome opens on a blank page.

    Besides Chrome, which would be the best browser: Dolphin or Opera?

    Thanks

    Eh, for My One V... Google Chrome wasn't so great.. :/ It lagged.. It wouldn't load.. So I just went back to the normal browser.. Which isn't so good either..

    Just checking the rules here since I'm a ROM dev. Does that include Google apps since only Google authors them and you have to flash them on aosp separately for market and such

    If I'm not mistaken, Google Apps is distributed by Google and thus it would not be a problem.

    Chrome is too. Gmail is under the gapps package. And gmail is released by the same account as chrome. Just wondering if there was a legality change

    Have always loved Chrome on my desktop, so I thought it was a no-brainer that it would be ideal on my One V. Boy, was I wrong. Doesn't scroll smoothly, very glitcy, and the text input fields don't seem to get along with the keyboards in either orientation. It was so frustrating that I've just been using the stock browser for now.
