Google updated its Chrome Beta app for Android this week, adding support for Chromecast streaming and a new feature that lets you undo closed tabs — making it quick and easy to go back to webpages you accidentally closed.


There is no denying the fact that Chrome for Android is the best browser available for the platform.
