Google Chrome and Drive now free!

Google's long awaited web browser Chrome is now here. Also Google's cloud service Drive is here too.

Been playing around with Google Chrome today, it is kind of cool to have an alternative to Safari, but while searching is easier and the interface looks more like a pc browser, can't say it is that much better than Safari, but maybe some of you can post what is better about it.

Searching does seem a lot easier, and bookmarks are done in a folder view. Don't know which I would say looks better, but worth downloading nonetheless.

Can someone link both programs for me! Thanks!

Aren't they always free, though?

I like the look of Chrome better but as a jailbreaker you can make Safari look a lot like Chrome as it was.

So does Chrome use it's own engine like Opra for iPad does?

Yeah I researched Chrome for ios. Apperantly it just runs under Safari like other browsers, also unlike Safari though it uses an older nitro and java engine...basically you get a slightly slower skinned up Safari. Really sucks, was hoping Google would use their fast browser engine.
