Chrome Beta for Android has Awesome Tab Management (Video)

One thing that is lacking in most mobile browsers is really good tab management. That means being able to switch between open tabs without having to hit a tab button, swipe, then tap. Google, with the release of Chrome Beta for Android 4.0 phones, brings a fresh approach to tab management: you can swipe horizontally to move between active tabs, making it super fast and easy to toggle between multiple websites, which is great for productivity. Not only that, but should you want to see a zoomed out view of all of your tabs, you get a beautiful card interface, that, like the rest of Ice Cream Sandwich, responds to the “swipe away to close” gesture.

Chrome Beta for Android has a lot of other goodies like out-of-the-box sync with Chrome on your PC: this means that passwords, bookmarks, and even open tabs are sent to your mobile. This is perfect for those of us that want to start browsing on PC, then resume on our Android while on the road.

You can grab Chrome Beta from the Android market, but you’ll need a phone with Android 4.0.

Have you tried Chrome Beta? How are you finding it?
