    Why would I need a webpage Chrome to Phone? Now if it did other things as they suggest, I can see the benefit.

    Send direction from Maps / Mapquest, send an invitation code to your phone so you can show it to the place you're going, send a page description of an item that you are going to pick up in the store....

    Possibilities are limitless.

    You're in your office or at home, and you're on a webpage. You have to leave but want to finish reading the page. One click pushes that page right to your phone, automatically opening the browser.

    This also works with Google Maps. You can use your PC or laptop to find some place on Google Maps, or create a route. Then just push it to your phone as you're headed out the door. Sweet!

    FWIW, I can't get my DROID to "register" either. ARGH! :(

    Also the new app marketplace online, send apps straight to your phone. That's also something cool I'm looking forward to.

    It's all moot until the app will actually register our phone.

    Well since the .apk is straight from google, it might only be designed with the Nexus One in mind since the Nexus One is the only phone that is supposed to have 2.2 right now. They might even be blocking registration of Droids on their end.

    Doesn't surprise me... this is a port of the version that was released earlier for the N1... I'm sure that they are still working on it... it will not be official or current until they release the code on AOSP...

    I don't really use Chrome, but I love me some Firefox. If that works too like that site says, I'll have to DL.

    With the 2nd leak of Froyo(Released 6/8), my device registered in about 5 seconds. Works perfect, including google maps. It loaded the address right up, I clicked on it, hit navigate....prrrrrrfect
