Default Google Chrome Browser for iOS

I likes! Anyone else tried it yet? Much better than Safari simply because of functionality.

What does it offer over safari? While it shares the webkit underpinnings, it does not use the V8 JavaScript engine, nor does it share th nitro JavaScript engine that safari uses. As a result, it can't hope to perform as well as safari on the iPhone or iPad.

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.

Chrome now up on itune UK, installed and used it all day. Looked much the same as on Android, far much better and more stable than horrible unstable Safari on my itouch 4G crashed 3 times everyday so Chrome never crashed.

Will try it out. I use Chrome on my desktop and I would do anything to not use Safari on any device. What a POS.

Was just about to start a thread about this.

Faster?
Stability?
Functionality?

I'm a big fan of Chrome on the PC.

After 12 days used Chrome on iOS, I am damn very impressed with Chrome. It never crashed once compared to 3 times everyday with Safari, about 3 times faster than Safari and much faster tab switching which it was much slower on Safari.

Well done Google now take crown king of browser on every platform after overtake IE for the first time worldwide.
