    76% according to a company who has an interest in an increasing malware rate.
    i do believe malware for android is on the rise, but i would take this news with a grain of salt.

      I’d like to see the raw numbers. This is like the report of childrens’ drownings going up 200% and you find out that 76 kids drowned. Tragic on an individual basis, but not reason enough to fill in every pool and lake in the country.

    What can I expect from a Chromium browser on android?
    I like Chrome on my pc, but I don’t really see what it could change in the mobile field.
    Will it be faster?
    That article isn’t very good at explaining what to expect either.
    Still I’m psyched, because whatever it means, it will be good :D

    (I hope it can stream more content rather than downloading it)
