Google Launches Chrome Web Browser for iOS
Those of you that are bugging to stop using Apple’s Mobile Safari application have got to love all these third party Web browser releases. Not too long ago, Mozilla announced
an iPad version of their Firefox Web browser. Today, Google has launched their Google Chrome Web browser on the iOS platform and it will work on every iOS device.
Just like the upcoming iPad version of Firefox, Google Chrome for iOS will be limited to Apple’s Web kit engine because the App Store has limitations for third party developers. This means that Google Chrome won’t be as fast as Mobile Safari. On a more positive note, Google Chrome for iOS does look good and it has some pretty neat animations and a simplistic interface that could compete with Mobile Safari for people that don't much care about the tiny speed difference.
In case you were wondering, the iOS version of Google Chrome will have the tab syncing feature that moves across all of your devices running Google Chrome so you can start something from one place and pick up on it from another place. This feature requires an account with Google. Chrome for iOS gives you unlimited tabs, offers incognito mode (alternative to Mobile Safari’s private browsing feature), and even lets you send Web pages from your iOS device to your computers for looking at later on.
If you plan on picking up Google Chrome for iOS, you can download it for free from the App Store. Here is a link
