Its NOT Google Chrome, it clearly says at the link you provided. Google Chrome relies on APIs introduced in ICS so a GB port is not possible unless somebody were to start a completely different project of compiling for Android from Chromium source which may not even be possible.

Ya, I've found that its not chrome so I've changed the title.
But it is a good browser if you need speed

I'd recommend Dolphin HD for Gingerbread. I don't really want to download some random browser apk off some random site with all these malware reports recently.

Please don't use a misleading title. This is a skinned browser to looks like Chrome.

I don't say very much, but i don't think calling xda "some random website" is cool. I've personally been here since windows 5 days and xda has been here even longer. Xda is the opposite of "some random site". No flame, just saying.

He's clearly talking about the website in the link from which you go to download it.

Its not like this is on the xda portal, there is no endorsement from xda at all. This is some random dude telling you to go to "Freshnewsarea.com" to download and sideload a browser, and lying about what kind of browser it is to boot.

If you're not at least a little skeptical of that (because you're reading it on xda which you claim to be a safe site), then I don't know what to tell you.

No flame, just saying.
