Google Chrome for Photon 4G Webtop?

Is there a version of Google Chrome that will run on the Photon 4G in Webtop mode?

Right now the default browser in webtop mode is Firefox. I can't believe they chose that browser. It's a thing of the past. It's the only browser not supported by Netflix. Why in the hell would they not use Chrome? This is an Android phone for bleep's sake!

Refer to this site for more info https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.apps.chrometophone&hl=en 

You also need to install the Chrome browser extension on your computer, which can be found by searching for 'Chrome to Phone' at

That is a really good app and I did install it, but it isn't the Chrome browser. I'm not even sure it's possible yet, but I'd love to have the Google Chrome web browser on my Photon for Webtop mode. Currently Motorola ships it with the Firefox web browser. Firefox is OK, but it isn't much compared to Chrome. Plus there are some popular media content sites that won't support Firefox.

I do agree with with you on Firefox 4

It was announced at CES 2012 that the next upgrade of Webtop will have Google Chrome as browser

I can only speculate that Chrome is comming  with ICS upgrade. When? I don't know.
