Following Day 1 of the Google I/O Conference, Google decided to update quite a few apps such as Google+ and Chrome for Android.  The latest update for Chrome for Android brings the app out of beta and ready for prime-time action.

The latest version is known as 18.0.1025123 and it is a stable version that removes several bugs and brings a few UI adjustments for tablets.  Unfortunately, Chrome for Android is still only available for devices running Android 4.0 or higher, which is still not a majority of Android users.

We’ve seen Mozilla update its Firefox Android browser earlier this week, which makes it operate faster and more efficiently.  Chrome and Firefox are two of the biggest names in browsing, so it will be interesting to see what browser Android folks use.  Each has its positives and negatives and comes down to which you are more comfortable with and operates the best on your device.  It is also worth noting Firefox for Android operates on Android 2.2 and higher.
