Update 3/6/13: Chrome Beta was just updated once again with fixes to short flings that used to decelerate too quickly, password sync, and last but not least - broken Nexus 7 compatibility:

Chrome Beta for Android has been updated to 26.0.1410.28. This release contains a few new fixes including:

  • 180205 - Short flings decelerate too quickly
  • 180396 - Allow Nexus 7 to update to Chrome 26
  • 180403 - Fix password sync for users upgrading from Chrome 25 (This fix will roll out over the next few days)

If you're using the beta channel of Chrome for Android, you're in for a treat today: Chrome for Android now supports password sync and autofill, two awesome features that should make your mobile browsing life a lot easier.

The toggles for these new features can be found in the Sync area of Chrome's settings, though Google says the feature is rolling out gradually, so you may need to wait a day or two before it actually works. The Chrome team also recommends that you be running the Chrome Beta channel on your desktop browser in order to ensure the new features function properly.

The changelog for the latest beta (version 26.0.1410.26) doesn't indicate any other changes in this new version, but we think the addition of more cross-platform syncing is more than enough for one release.
