If you’re among the masses of Android 4.0 users currently swimming in Google’s Chrome for Android Beta, then you’ll be glad to know that an update is now available for Google’s in-house mobile browser. In response to user feedback, Google has added the following enhancements:

  • You can now request the desktop version of a website, in case you would rather not view the mobile version.
  • You can now add bookmarks as shortcuts on your home screen, so you can get to your favorite sites faster.
  • Choose your favorite apps to handle links opened in Chrome.
  • You can now use Chrome with the system proxy configured in Android settings.

Whether you’re already in the beta, or just plain curious about trying a new browser, you can grab the latest version of Chrome for Android via Google Play. Please note that this is a beta and it does require that your phone or tablet be running Android 4.0 or higher.
