You gain some, you lose some

The Chrome browser for Android has the same sharing capabilities as the standard Android browsing, such as via email and social networking, as well as the same ability to search both the Web and the currently open page.

In addition to the other capabilities noted in previous slides, the Chrome browser for Android adds Forward and Back buttons, available through the menu. The standard Android browser has no such controls.

But Chrome lacks two features -- at least in the beta version -- found on the standard browser. One omission is the ability to request the desktop version of a Web page rather than a mobile-optimized rendition. The other omission is the ability to save a page for offline reading later.
