    I use a google mail account and google calander - is it worth using chrome mobile on my Note instead of the stock browser? Any known issues with Chrome on Note?
    Thanks

    Advantage of chrome is that you can sync your desktops bookmarks, passwords for sites and settings onto your Note.
    However chrome does not handle flash at all, so that is a disadvantage compared to stock or Opera for example.

    Personally i find it sluggish but good enough for use as the main browser, the sync bookmarks alone is a good enough reason.

    I mainly use between Opera and chrome, rarely do i use stock now.

    Oddly when I look up chrome on the playstore it says that it is not compatible with my phone. I'm running Gingerbread on my Note - is there a solution?

    I use Chrome to keep my bookmarks synced between my laptop, Mac, and Nexus. Flash isn't too big a deal for me...sure it'd be nice, but it doesn't kill me to open up a separate browser.
