Google Chrome for iOS is free for download

SHARE

Google’s popular browser has finally made its way to iOS devices and it’s free for downloading at the app store. Google Chrome offers extra features such as Incognito, which provides a convenient private browsing mode; and tab and bookmark syncing across iOS devices running iOS 4.3 or later.

Before you think about switching—Google Chrome for iOS is supposedly restricted to using a slower version of the website rendering engine Webkit, which means that the overall experience will be a little slower than Safari and the regular Chrome on our PCs. Another drawback that Google hasn’t worked on yet, is the fact that Chrome for iOS can’t be set as the default web browser. That is, until a Jailbreak extension is updated to accommodate the new browser.
