Google Chrome for Android received an update which brings an important feature from the Desktop version.
You can now access your Chrome passwords & autofill data on Android devices.
Obviously to access this feature on your Android device, you need to have the Desktop version of Chrome on your Computer. And you have to use Google Sync on it. Then you need to use the same account on your Android device to synchronise the Autofill & Password data. This will be useful for people who like password managers and those who forget their login data.
And they also fixed a bug which prevented webpages from loading. This could’t have been happening on all devices
The official change-log:
Fixed issue where blank page would be loaded rather than URL
Performance and stability improvements
I always wonder what the mysterious improvements are. Sigh!

Note: The new version requests 2new permissions, Camera & Modify Audio Settings. Apparently these permissions are required for WebRTC (Web Real Time Communications), an experimental feature under development.
