    Android Chrome asks for NFC

    News in brief

    A beta version of Google’s Chrome web browser for Android phones, released in the Android Market yesterday, requests user permission to control near field communication features upon installation. Chrome runs on Android 4.0 devices and is deeply synchronised with the user’s desktop browser. The NFC permission opens up the possibility for web-based apps to communicate with tags, cards and devices.
