When it comes to browsers for Android we are truly spoiled for choice. Well now one more will becoming to Google Play very soon.

Those guys behind CM11 and CM12 custom ROMs are working on “Gello”, a browser that is based on the open source Chromium code.

We’ll be hearing more about Gello over the coming days. So for now, you will have to wait for more information on the app, and we’ll be sure to let you know.

CyanogenMod Team does not hate Google, this is not a way to steal Google’s work (chromium is opensource), nor me (or any other CM team member) wants you remove Chrome from your device. You’ll always be free to choose to install your GApps package alongside with CyanogenMod and replace [sic] all the CyanogenMod apps you don’t like/use with Google’s. Me and all the CM teams uses Google Apps and Services every day. We aren’t “putting a bullet into Google’s head”. We’re just creating an operative system (or ROM or Firmware, whatever you call it).
