I’ve just updated my hp touchpad to ice cream sandwich and the first thing i’ve done on the new os was downloading chrome (which is only compatible with ICS).

I used int for a few days, here’s few screenshoot of the app running on my hp touchpad.

It was marked as ‘beta’, I thought about Siri and all the customer’s indignation about Apple releasing a beta software (which works by the way) and I was like ok I’ll give it a try anyway.

Installed smoothly, let’s go.

I had been surfing for almost an hour when chrome froze, later on, i found out that it was because of a youtube video. Google has released a browser that doesn’t even work with its own services.

And I haven’t heard anyone yet complaining about it because you know, it’s still in beta!

It’s not a huge problem you could expect such a thing from a beta version, but what matters is that if they haven’t shouted at Apple I wouldn’t even mind writing something about it, but they did. That’s my response.
