Chrome 39 goes stable on Android, brings Lollipop enhancements and more

Android Google Chrome Exploit

As we’re sure many of you are aware, the major design language shift in Android Lollipop has inevitably spurred a mass outbreak of updates. We sure aren’t complaining, and the next app to join in on the fun is Chrome, which now finally has its Chrome 39 for Android update out of beta and pushed to the stable channel. Here’s what’s new.

You’ll of course only be able to take advantage of the main tweaks if you are running Android 5.0, but you’re not entirely out in the cold if not. There’s now a colored status bar that can be defined by web developers (we’ve got it working it with Pocketnow; try it after updating to Chrome 39 on your Lollipop device, and merging tabs in your multitasking view), and the closed tab popup has been reworked as far as the user interface is concerned.


Finally, as Android Police points out, there’s this fun new dinosaur game that you’ll get to play when you’re offline. Someone at Google was clearly having too much fun with this.

Of course, the rollout is staggered, so if you want to get your hands on Chrome 39 for Android immediately, click through the source link to get yourself an APK to manually install.
