Okay, it was not easy, I mean, flashing Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on to my Galaxy Note. I was tensed and afraid of bricks. But, I finally got it done, and installed Chrome on it.

Now I will wait for Google to push some Jelly Bean flavored Chrome updates. I was hoping that Google will make Chrome default browser from Jelly Bean onward. However, they made it the default browser on Nexus 7 tablet, but not on Jelly Bean.
