The second day of Google’s I/O event brought to us Google’s Chrome browser for iOS, specifically iPhone and iPod as of now. The app was much awaited on Apple’s App Store, and now when it is finally released, Google has cleared its only obstacle in bringing the Chrome browser to the title of most used web-browser, mobile as well as desktop, notebook and tablet computers. It hasn’t even been complete 24-hours to its universal release, and Google Chrome has earned itself the title of No. 1 free app in Apple’s App Store. This clearly shows that Google Chrome was a much awaited app in the app store, and when finally its here, it is as good news for iPhone and iPad users.
While Google Chrome for iPhone and iPad supports some astonishing features like sync, which lets you transfer your bookmarks from your computer to the mobile Chrome browser on your iPhone or iPad. Also, the mobile Chrome browser also keeps in mind the browsing history on your computer, thus you get to see recent searches performed on your computer on the mobile Chrome browser itself.
One thing we didn’t like about the app is that when you open multiple tabs which can not be accommodated on the screen, Chrome smushes all tabs together, which gives them a not so appealing look. Though, with other amazing capabilities, we can for sure neglect this flaw.
Another news comes from our favorite jailbreak community, which has developed a tweak for Chrome on iOS named BrowserChooser, which sets Chrome as default browser on your iDevice. Now that is something impressing. In less than 24-hours, the jailbreak community has already sprung into action to enhance the Chrome experience on iPhones and iPads. The Omnibar unifies search bar and address bar together, so you get to use one single input bar for address input and search queries as well. Also, you get to use the famous Incognito window option available in Chrome on your iDevice.
Chrome for iOS is a +1 from our side. Let us know your views via the comments section below. For more, keep subscribed.
