The search engine giant Google has released 'Chrome to Phone' for Android -- a tool that send links and other information from your desktop or laptop to your Android phone. "The new 'Chrome to Phone' extension adds a button to your Google Chrome browser that instantly sends the current web page, map, YouTube video, or selected phone number or text to your Android device running Froyo (or Android 2.2)," Google said in its blog.
