The recent Chrome Beta for Android update was notable for including password and form sync, but it turns out there is another feature lurking beneath the surface, and it's potentially a big deal. Google has built in a data compression proxy for Chrome that can reduce bandwidth usage by up to 50% on mobile networks. You'll have to do a little digging through the Chrome flags, but it's relatively easy to switch to the fast lane.

HTC Sense 5 wallpapers, wallpapers, 18 gorgeous wallpapers! Who wants them? Do you want one? And you? Wallpapers for everybody!

Thanks to some quick thinking of an enterprising xda-developers forum member loan92, who used his charm and boyish good looks to distract HTC employees from his sneaky actions at an event in Italy, we have eighteen beautiful wallpapers the company bundled with the upcoming One flagship.

For your convenience, I've mirrored them to an imgur gallery where they can be viewed using the widget below.

The original Worms landed on the Play Store way back in early 2011 (when it was still the Android Market), but the launch was far from perfect. Device compatibility was lacking, and force closes all too common. A while back, the game was actually removed from the Play Store.

In fact, it was the Worms franchise's new owner that requested it be taken down. According to Team 17 Digital, EA was "not supporting OS updates," and the company asked for the game to be removed because it "didn't want to damage the brand." Yikes.

It's the start of a new month, so you know what that means: time to look at the rise and fall of Android versions over the last four weeks. This month's numbers continue to look promising, with Gingerbread and ICS steadily sliding downhill and Jelly Bean continuing its climb to the top:

Update: Looks like El Goog made a tiny error in the chart, as it's just updated the page to reflect a minor difference: Froyo is actually on 7.5% of handsets, and Gingerbread is on 44.1%.

I'm not sure we even have enough wat for this, but let's give it a go. Snoop Dogg—that is to say, the previous incarnation of the entity now known as Snoop Lion—will soon be appearing in a rhythm fighting game on Android called 'Way of the Dogg.' Developed by Echo Peak and under development for two years, the title will show "how we evolve as individuals." Plus, "[Echo Peak has] incorporated the journey of my own personal reincarnation as Snoop Lion into my character," says the rechristened rapper in a ringing endorsement.

Rumors are tricky things. On the one hand, one of the best ways to verify that a suspicious-looking leak is legit is to examine the track record of the leakster. On the other hand, when an image comes out that's nothing but a rounded rectangle with a few gradients, it should be assumed that the picture is complete bunk or, at best, resembles a real device by virtue of adhering to predictable patterns.
