G1’s Android Web Browser in Action

Former ReadWriteWeb network blog last100 has produced a screencast showing the web browser in Google’s Android phone the G1. last100 editor Steve O’Hear remarked that the bundled browser is “fast, renders the full web flawlessly (aside from the lack of Flash support), and does a fantastic job of re-flowing text when you zoom in on a specific part of a web page, therefore eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling despite browsing on such a small screen.” Check out Steve’s short video review below.

As ReadWriteWeb noted when G1 was released in September, the default browser isn’t Google’s Chrome – but Web-Kit, which is “Chrome-like”. However Sergey Brin confirmed in early September that Chrome will be coming to Android in subsequent versions.
