Sure, it offers extra functionality that google offers. But what exactly can it offer that safari can't?
Seems faster than a safari to me plus the biggest thing for me is synced tabs. Love being able to view something on my iPad or iPhone, then pick up where I left off on my laptop or desktop.

Safari on the desktop is nowhere near as fast as Chrome plus the extensions don't work as well, so Chrome is my primary web browser. It fits in better with my setup. If you have a jail broken device, you can have Chrome as your default browser.
