Default Chrome on Android now - but...

Android 4.0 ICS only.

There goes the idea of getting a Galaxy Note. Hopefully it gets out of beta real fast.

Just got it, seems cool so far. Def better than the stock browser since it syncs my bookmarks and has tabs.

Does the stock ICS browser not have tabs? My CM9 Alpha for the SGS has tabs.

Of course there is, it's fairly stable now too: [ROM][ICS][IML74K] teamhacksung's CM9 ALPHA for Galaxy S (BUILD 15) - xda-developers

I find it runs pretty quick and smooth. No major issues thus far, but I'm by no means a heavy phone user.

It does yeah but it isnt as seemless as Chrome. Chrome is much better than the stock browser imo.

Stock browser on Android phones suck and not sure why people insist on using it. The first thing I did was download Dolphin Browser HD and its a world of difference.
