    Ok I just downloaded chrome beta on my new phone and after 15 to 20 min the phone got really hot . The web page and keyboard kept bugging out , flashed and then crashed.
    Just posting this if anyone else has the same problem and as a warning.

    Wow...what a bummer!! I prefer Chrome on my home computer and I have it on my VM HTC EVO V. I downloaded and installed without incident.

    I wonder if I didn't have any problems with my download because I was at home and I use my home wireless network for downloads there. My home wireless network speed is better than 21mb/second as reported by the SPEEDTEST App. I tried to measure the VM 3G speed and it just it was 710ms for Ping, 165kbps for Download and 27kbps for upload.

    Good luck !!!

    I've been using Chrome since I first got the phone on 6/4 with no issues.

    Yeah I'm getting weird graphical issues like flashing and the keyboard disappearing (but still being able to press keys). Only happens when Chrome is open.

    Well it is in beta... Personally I don't like chrome on PC either though lol. What I've noticed is that the mobile versions of supposedly good browsers are generally no good. Firefox mobile for example. :D I can't say for Chrome mobile though as I have yet to use it. I'll see how it is when I get my phone hopefully tomorrow

    Well after a day of using chrome beta I can say that it is VERY buggy. It hasn't fc'd yet, but it does like a weird strobe thing when scrolling and the keyboard gets cut in half. Also it's a huge file. Like 47mb, and no app2sd. I'll hang on to it but I doubt that google is really putting effort into developing it. Still don't get why they wouldn't make chrome a standard android thing though. Dolphin HD for me!

    Yeah I get the same problem with the bugging out scrolling and keyboard. I use chrome as my primary browser, and avoid all others. There's no point in using others IMO, nothing comes close to the speed of Chrome. Firefox and IE are just way too slow for me. It's too bad cause Chrome is also the fastest browser I tested (when it works) for Android as well...
