There are a few differences. For example:
I didn't know that Chrome had a option of allowing to download mobile version of a site or a desktop version of a site.
I even read the nexus 7 book, and I don't recall it saying that about Chrome [about being able to view websites like a desktop or mobile.
Well this exsted long before the Google tenacaled Chrome on Android... but again Apple really doesn't.
Basically sites read your device ID passed by browser and formats for the device... on a phone mobile is pretty much necessary for readability with out a LOT of zooming and scrolling but not tablets, though still ID'd as a mobile devices.
Many video sites also disallow mobile device... that is the thing I find most annoying but again the aliasing browsers are there on Android.
And again this is not unique to Chrome... several other Android browsers (w/o the Google tentacles), alias the mobile ID as a PC. (like Maxthon... at least the Tablet version)--
