    I found a tweet from webOS internals saying its doable and worked well but I could not find any documentation on it yet. My main reason for trying it is for plugins for google plus. I'm not sure if that's a solution or not.

    You can't, he was talking about putting some sort of ubuntu on tp before using linux apps. There is no chrome for stock touchpad.

    If you are somewhat tech savy, search this forum for instructions of putting ubuntu on tp.

    Is this Chrome running on top of a linux chroot, or is this Chrome compiled for the Touchpad?

    I think Google should be looking at bringing some form of Chrome to mobile devices. At least Android if not webOS. Obviously Apple will never allow it on iOS.

    The Chrome App Store, bookmark sync.

    It's using webkit, just like the touchpad uses webkit. It was developed before android was purchased by google. It's has evolved however. So they are just based on the same tech.

    I would think webOS is more functional then Chrome. Go Android if you need something different.

    I petitioned Dolphin HD to make a webOS version. I hope they do. I suggest everyone wanting a great browser on the TouchPad to do the same.

    Start a thread, provide a link...I've never used Dolphin so don't know what I'm missing. Make it easy for people to petition them and you'll get faster results. Angry Birds came to webOS the same way.

    Getting it running in ubuntu on the touchpad isn't -that- hard if you really want to use chrome. And honestly, it's not half-bad .

    I tossed in a quick-and-dirty method to get it all running over on my get started guide:

    Anyway.....

    Since chrome now supports off-line google docs (superior to quick office), mail and calendar I guess it depends how you define "functional".

    Does netflix work on it? That's a very compelling reason to do it.

    They allow Opera. Apple allows other web browsers on iOS as long as they use webkit, I think. (and probably follow some other guidelines as well).
