If you have already purchased or are thinking of purchasing a new MacBook Pro. You might be interested to learn that Google has unveiled their beta version of Chrome is now ready to support the MacBook Pro’s retina screen.
Apple announced their new MacBookPro on Monday equipped with a retina screen, providing a 2880 x 1800 high resolution pixels count. Wasting no time Google yesterday announced that their Chrome beta browser now supports the next generation MacBook Pro.
“Apple recently announced a new laptop with a Retina high-resolution screen, and we’re committed to polishing Chrome until it shines on that machine.
The Chrome Canary channel already shows the early results of this work, bringing basic high-resolution support to Chrome. We have further to go over the next few weeks, but we’re off to the races to make Chrome as beautiful as it can be.”
So, Google is finally making the move we’ve been expecting for some time now and bringing Chrome to Android. Now, you’ll need a device running Ice Cream Sandwich to get the new mobile browser up and running but, thankfully, we happened to have a Galaxy Nexus on hand. As you might expect, mobile Chrome (much like its desktop sibling) is fast — a little buggy perhaps, but fast. It isn’t, however, the fastest browser for the platform. Chrome Beta holds its own, but the standard Android browser, the stable version of Firefox and Dolphin HD all edged it out in SunSpider. Numbers don’t tell the whole story though, so head on past the break for more.
