Why is the Android stock browser still alive? As of June 2014, 15.7% (0.8+14.9) of users still use Android 2.2 and 2.3.x (Froyo and Gingerbread), since Chrome supports only Android 4.0+, these users can't use Chrome for Android. Also Android 4.0 (ICS), which has 12.3% of users, does not come with Chrome preinstalled. Moreover, I think the stock browser ...

On Android and other platforms, even if there is a Multicast DNS daemon running and libraries available for using it, "...

I came across this question while looking for a way to do this as well, and it appears that Chrome for Android does not currently have this option.

I came across this solution when I was looking to recover tabs that had been permanently closed after my browser crashed one day. In order to access the information you require, your device needs to be rooted so you can run a file explorer app with access to the root files installed on your device. ES File Explorer or Root Explorer are my recommendations. ...

As of 2019, the Android devices cannot be renamed; both from themselves and from other devices.

In Windows, if you open Manage password in Chrome, then it asks for a master password (i.e. Windows Admin password) to view and manage your passwords. But that's not the case in Android. So for security purposes, Chrome for Android doesn't reveal the password. From Greenbot: Saving your passwords to your device presents some obvious security issues. ...

This is now possible in Chrome 57. Just visit DuckDuckGo, perform a search (search for anything), then visit Settings > Search engine and DuckDuckGo should be listed at the bottom of the page. After doing the DuckDuckGo search, if you still don't find DDG on Chrome's Search Engine page, you may (as I did, using Chrome 61) have to go to DuckDuckGo.com and ...

It is not possible for an user to disable autocomplete for a single site. You can check this link to disable the feature on Chrome (all sites) - it is a simple tutorial on how to do it. However, for a single site, unless you are the website's developer and don't want your users to have this feature, you can't. But, if you are, you can check this ...

Directly on the device? I don't think so. If you have a computer running chrome, and a usb cord for your phone, then you can use Chrome's remote debugger to access a web console on your computer that can inspect pages open in chrome, and any in-app webviews that have debugging enabled. Basically, you just enable the developer options and remote debugging on ...
