    Just saw THIS ARTICLE about Google Chrome for ICS.

    It has some awesomely sweet features, and is going to blow all other browsers away in terms of wow factor and features.




    Hurry Up Acer, I want my IceCreamSandwidch treat.

    The stock browser is pretty good, but it is a small subset of the full Google Chrome.

    I have it for ga nexus and it does not support flash. It also does not support desktop mode. The only good thing is it synchs my bookmarks quite easily.

    Desktop mode on a phone makes no sense at all. You can't read anything.
    The Stock browser supports it, but I never use it. Its just imposes another step you have to perform to get to the readable part of the page. (zooming). I always run in tablet mode.

    I also always put Plugins setting to On Demand. Sick of flash ads in my face on every page.

    So, not bothered by either one of those issues.

    Be nice if their out sourced tech support line was more up to date like reps at shows and showings. Offcial reps layed out more info. A200 would recieve ICS Aroudn the THird week of February (they were right it started this past weekend). Followed by A500/501's, the A100's after the A200 roll outs hit a certain level.

    Are you speaking officially? Seems a bit curious for just your 3rd post. Just wondering.
