Chrome Beta for Android was just released, giving Android users the capability to browse Incognito as they would using the Chrome desktop version.

Google just released Chrome Beta for Android .

Chrome Beta brings all of your favorite Chrome features to your favorite smartphone or tablet, including Incognito mode. Here's a quick rundown of how to open and manage Incognito tabs.

Before we begin, you will need to download Chrome Beta from the Android Market. If you aren't using a device running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, you won't be able to download Chrome Beta as it's only compatible with ICS devices.
