Chrome for Android exits beta stage after stability and performance fixes

Chrome for Android was first announced in February this year, but it’s been stuck in beta stages up till today.

Now, thanks to an announcement by the Chrome Releases blog, it looks like Chrome for Android is officially ready, and the first stable release has been set free. Starting today, version 18.0.1025123 will be the first Stable Channel release of the browser and can be downloaded immediately. Google had previously announced that their new Nexus 7 tablet would launch with the Chrome browser and all devices running Android 4.0 or later are also supported.

According to the blog, the latest release includes important stability and performance fixes as well as UI changes for tablets. There is no current info as to the availability of other release channels, but the post did hint to upcoming information.

Folks interested in the browser, can head right away to Google Play as long as their device is one of the lucky few running Ice Cream Sandwich.
