Every smartphone comes with a default Web browser, and Chrome is the go-to option for most Android devices. If a device includes Google Play Services, then this particular browser will come pre-installed. Typically, Google's browser is prized for its excellent performance and stability in daily use. The mobile version makes few compromises compared to its desktop counterpart, with the exception of extensions being absent.

Chrome is optimized to run on every version of the Android operating system, and it doesn't disappoint. Users can browse the Internet, open multiple tabs, share Web content, and more within the browser. On top of that, content is synced across devices, which includes other smartphones and even desktop computers. A simple user interface hides plenty of useful features and performance that's hard to best.

As on desktops with the full version, Chrome for Android is not a perfect Web browser. Smartphone owners will notice the app requires a lot of resources to run. Battery drain is noticeable at every turn. Plus, the app utilizes a large amount of RAM and other resources as more tabs are opened. Devices relying upon older or lesser hardware may struggle to keep up with the resource demands of this particular browser.

Modern devices with decent hardware can take full advantage of Chrome, though. Regular users will love the performance and ease of use. It doesn't hurt that Google voice commands and search are baked into the browser as well. While the battery drain can prove bothersome, a better Web browsing experience might not be available on Android smartphones or tablets today.

Pros

  • Excellent performance and speed.
  • Useful bookmarking and sharing features.
  • Comes standard on most Android devices.

Cons

  • Major battery drain from extended use.
  • Resource intensive on any device.
  • Devices with less RAM may suffer from poor performance.

Thanks for choosing Chrome! This release includes stability and performance improvements.
