Chrome could appear in Android or other cellphones

September 11, 2008

Google has ported a core part of its new browser to the ARM processor as well as to the x86. Google co-founder Sergey Brin said all or parts of the new Chrome browser could be available for mobile devices such as cellphones within a few months

Chrome is primarily designed as a PC browser, aiming to deliver significant increases in performance, reliability and security over the competitors including Microsoft’s Internet Explorer which dominates the market. However, Chrome or key pieces of it are also well suited to mobile systems.

One of the core planks of the Chrome browser is a new Javascript virtual machine called V8 that delivers “many times” the performance of other Java VMs, according to Google. The performance increases could open the door to new Web-based applications.
