Another of the very cool features we saw during the Android 2.2. Froyo announcement at Google IO was the "Chrome to Phone" extension, available for Google's Chrome browser. In a nutshell, it sends a web page from your desktop or laptop browser to your phone, in just a matter of seconds. Here's how you do it:
- Download the Chrome to Phone extension for the Chrome browser.
- Download the Chrome to Phone app for Android 2.2. [Download directly on your phone here.]
- Install both, and "Register" both.
- To send a page, just click the "Chrome to Phone" icon on the Chrome browser.
It's stupidly simple, and we're already tweaking this some to send files and what not to Froyo in just a matter of clicks.
Oh, you want more? OK. How about a Firefox extension? Sure thing. Snag it here. Then just right-click on a page to send it to your phone. Check out the Chrome to Home project homepage if you want to know more, and check out our video of it in action after the break.
