As if the endless torrent of news out of I/O wasn't enough, Google has decided to push out updates for just about every Android app today, too.

Chrome For Android got a bump to 18.0.1025123. The biggest change of which is the dropping of the "Beta" tag. Here's the full "What's New" from their blog post:

This update picks up important stability and performance fixes since the last Beta, along with some minor UI adjustments, especially for tablets.

If for some reason you don't have Chrome already, you can grab yourself a copy from the Play Store, right here.

Expect a good eye for detail, lots of research, and some lamenting about how something isn't designed well enough.

    Does it work on Gingerbread yet?

  • Bob Dlux

    Except there's no Flash support which bums me out.

      This is what I was thinking. Once they get rid of Browser, I'm going to have to find another browser for when I visit sites that don't have HTML5 but do have things that I want.

      • PhilNelwyn

        Would it be possible to copy the apk now, and reinstall it after the update?

      • WestIndiesKING

        i use Firefox and chrome. Firefox recently added flash support

  • GuidZilla

    Does it actually launch applications yet such as youtube from links? 

    • Greyhame

      yes, for awhile now

      • GuidZilla

        Nice! thanks, I'll give it a shot again, that was just irritating for me.

          No problem. Chrome is great. The best part of it, IMO, is typing in the address bar the beginning of the website you want to go to. Google somehow KNOWS.. bookmarks have been rendered unnecessary.

    Would love to use it, but no ICS here yet (Atrix).

  • Chris Webster

    I take it the Android Police writers have given up trying to write long explanations after all the news that has came out today

    • Ron Amadeo

      Look at the source link. There isn't much to write about. =P

    Where's my chrome canary build, I like living on the edge ;)

  • mesmorino

    How does it actually compare to Dolphin Browser? I miss a few dolphin add ons whenever I use chrome, and it looks like doesn't even support flash? I dunno, it's like an "almost, but not quite" kinda browser

  • Brando212

    it crashes whenever i try to open settings on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7

    • Mr R

      Same, crashes when opening settings on Acer A100.
      How the heck did get through QA?
