Chrome Beta update fixes crashes, adds tilt scrolling when switching tabs

Chrome Beta
Google's Beta channel of Chrome on Android has just received another update, this time fixing nasty crashes and adding a few more features. First, issues with text selection handles being placed in the wrong location have been fixed. Next, several "frequently occurring crashes" have been fixed. You're now able to log in to the LinkedIn desktop site, which could be an important fix. On the feature side, the ability to tilt the phone to scroll now works in tab switching mode, so if you like to keep lots of tabs open it should be easier to navigate through them if you choose this option.

There are still many notable bugs -- it is Beta after all -- such as text entry problems with Swype, popup issues and text formatting abnormalities. For this reason, at this point Chrome Beta isn't available for download by searching in the Play Store, so you'll have to install it from the Play Store link. You can also check out the full changelog here.
