  1. Ola! Phanse,
    Thanks, on a related note, Although Google Chrome is one of the most popular and also advanced Internet Browsers that is available today, it doesn’t come without some drawbacks. Because Google Chrome is such a highly sophisticated developed piece of software, which has been designed to make your Internet browsing experience the best and nothing else, the problems that come with it are sophisticated as well. Users of Chrome have reported various errors and issues with the browser, such as Crashing, Stalling, Error messages. Other users have claimed that they have had issues with Flash Player not functioning properly, this leaves many people stranded and unable to view certain web pages. All of this evidence put forward of Google Chrome’s issues has been led to believe that the browser is easily susceptible to damage and corruption.
    Keep up the posts!

    • But an application that is in its Beta stage is bound to have problems. Beta stage itself means it is under testing. Anyways, the way to look at this post was that Google has finally released Chrome for Android. Once it comes out of Beta, there won’t be any problem like this!!
