Google is getting ready to give Android users – well, at least those on Android 4.0 devices – a desktop browser experience on their mobile devices with the introduction of Chrome for Android beta. Currently it's limited to 12 countries, but more should be following shortly.

Google is getting ready to give Android users – well, at least those on Android 4.0 devices – a desktop browser experience on their mobile devices with the introduction of Chrome for Android beta. Currently it's limited to 12 countries, but more should be following shortly.

Just as with the desktop version of Google Chrome, the Android version will allow you to sign into your Google account and it will sync all the data that you're syncing on your desktop browser with the mobile browser. However, Google has added some extra features to the mobile version of Chrome of which the most useful one is automatic sync of whatever is open on your desktop browser when you start Chrome on your mobile device.

As with the desktop version of Chrome, the mobile version also supports tabs, although these work slightly differently as you simply flick through them rather than having them at the top of the web browser. The mobile version of Chrome also supports auto complete suggestions, just like the desktop version.

For now Chrome for Android beta is only available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil, although it can be downloaded as of right now from the Android Market if you have a device that runs Android 4.x.
