Google Chrome for iOS is now available!

Google's Chrome for iOS has been released

| Apps News | Posted: Jun 29, 2012 6:50 am

Popular web browser from Google (and my personal favorite) Chrome is now available on iOS devices. The browser brings along some popular features from its desktop counterpart, but there are three stand-out features that make it much better than Apple's built-in Safari browser.

  • Incognito mode is separate from standard browsing and can be opened as a new tab (vs enabling manually in Safari)
  • Unlimited tabs (vs the 9 limit in Safari)
  • Browsing and bookmark syncing between mobile and desktop versions (coming to Safari with iOS 6 & OS X Mountain Lion)

 

There are other features, too, such as being able to request a full desktop version of a site you've visited, versus the mobile version, as well as the ability to search by voice by tapping the little microphone in the URL bar. I will be throwing this on my iPad as soon as I use it again.
