"Still Beta. Less capable than stock browser."
Fast (if it can load the content you want to see). Some thoughtful interface designs and features.
No flash capability, which is one of Android's few advantages over iOS. For example, when streaming an audio feed, the default browser has a better interface and is much more capable.
Chrome for Android's biggest selling point is its novelty. If you're an early adopter and curious tech enthusiast, then check it out. For substantive capability that works the first time, though, you will find yourself copying URLs from Chrome into the stock browser because the stock browser is so much more capable, esp when it comes to Flash and sites with rich content.
For all you delusional hipsters who say Flash is obsolete, the reality is that as of 2012, lack of Flash will give you lots of blank space. True, maybe that giant log shouldn't be in the freeway. But it's there. So, you can live by the-world-shouldn't-to-be-that-way delusion and slam your car into it at 70mph. Or, react to things as they are and deal with the log instead of ignoring it. Flash may or may not get phased out, but as of now, you'll be censored from accessing enormous volumes of content without Flash.
