Now this is Google response... It looks like it is not going to take long for Adobe to be force to license it's RTMP and RTMFP framework for Android to keep up with Server side Video Streaming...

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) introduced a beta version of its Chrome browser for its Android smartphone operating system. Chrome for Android Beta offers many of the same features as its desktop counterpart, but is not compatible with browser plug-ins or Adobe Flash technology. Chrome for Android Beta also is only available for tablets and handsets running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Perhaps the main difference between Android's existing browser and Chrome for Android is the ability for users to port bookmarks and saved tabs from their desktop Chrome Web browser to their Chrome Android browser. Synced devices will also see the same autocomplete suggestions shown on the desktop.

Also, Chrome's tabs have been redesigned to fit on smaller screens. Users can swipe their devices to switch between tabs.

On the developer side, Chrome for Android introduces remote debugging via Chrome Developer Tools, allowing developers to debug profile Web pages and Web apps via mobile.

"With hardware-accelerated canvas, overflow scroll support, strong HTML5 video support, and new capabilities such as Indexed DB, WebWorkers and Web Sockets, Chrome for Android is a solid platform for developing web content on mobile devices," wrote Arnaud Weber, engineering manager at Chrome on the Chromium blog.

Google touts Chrome for Android as being as fast as its desktop counterpart.

"When searching, your top search results are loaded in the background as you type so pages appear instantly," wrote Sundar Pichai, SVP of Chrome and apps, on the Google Mobile Blog.
