    Lol NO ive learned my lesson with blindly updating apps and i trust the views of the people here more than the Play reviews :)

    I updated but see no difference yet. I thought it was just the translation bar thing. You know, like from Scottish to English.

    lmao itl take more than a bank of google super computers to do that bro :D
    Ill check it out. I cant put my finger on what it is i dont like about chrome so i doubt if this will fix that :)
    Seems like the main difference is tablet users getting fullscreen?

    I've got Chrome on my Win7 machine and am happy with it. However, the Android version doesn't have a home button. Maybe they will fix this in the update.

    The lack of a Home button is one of three reasons why I do not use Chrome on my Moto Razr Maxx HD. The second is that it takes way too many steps to actually close/exit. Thirdly, no Speed Dials. I use Dolphin w/Jetpack, which has a Home button, speed dials and 2 clicks to close it. (And, I believe, it is faster than Chrome.)

    im a dolphin user and i like speed dial but i dont agree that a browser needs an exit button or to be closed in any way :thumbup: id rather be able to do other things and then hit my browser shortcut and instantly go to where i was when i left it

    Good point about quick access to current web pages. I just don't find Chrome to be very user friendly. Just my opinion.

    I agree. I've been using Boat for quite awhile now, this past week I got the HTC One which comes with Chrome as stock but I shut that off and installed Boat, I did give Chrome a try but just can't get used to it at all, perhaps just too Boat spoiled by now.
