Chrome Browser Coming To Android Soon?

Google’s Chrome offers PC users a light-weight, high-speed browser option. We’ve seen other popular PC browsers, like Opera and Firefox, make the transition to mobile platforms with the release of Android apps, but where has Chrome been? After all, thanks to its Google connection, you might expect to find Chrome leading the pack of Android browsers. While the other players now have a head start, Chrome looks like it will finally be joining them, with signs pointing to an upcoming release of Chrome for Android.

Work over at chromium.org, the open-source project Google’s Chrome releases build upon, shows developers working towards a build of the code for Android. We haven’t seen any official statements regarding this direction of development, so we can’t say if there are any set targets for release dates, or if there have decisions made about what features will and won’t make the cut, but we hear that apparently a sizable fraction of them will.

It’s too soon to expect a release, but Google may have something at least to say about Chrome for Android at CTIA, later this month.
