Meh. Looks fine on the iPad, but it's a bit slower than safari. It doesn't help that it just uses Safari's core engine and it uses the older versions of nitro and the java engine. Definitely not worth the download. Hopefully Google will release Crome for ios using it own engine like Opera does in the future, for now I don't think it's worth keeping.

Its OK. Syncing options obviously the big draw (as I use Chrome on the work laptop and gaming PC), but disappointed that there is no dedicated bookmark bar.

Bookmarks are there (and sync'd) just a pain that its 3 clicks away.

Cool to see they've done this. Kind of a shame that iOS doesn't let you change the default browser; Safari will always open any links you 'click' on inside other apps.

It's this that bugs me the most, far more than speed and it's not default. I use a variety of macs, pc's, phones and tablets so it's great to have one browser that fits all but the absence of bookmark bar, gah! There's an argument it makes sense on phones with small screen but not on a 9.7 display. 3 taps for a bookmark is silly. Before someone says "it's only three clicks!", multiply that by the 100 times you flip between pages in a day.

Doesn't Apple limit what other browsers can do? Also, the draw isn't the speed right now, its the syncing. I guess you wouldn't get that though.

Chrome seems nice and clean, which is cool but I wish you could use extensions like the desktop version.

I've been using a mix of Mercury and Safari and they're both pretty good. Mercury is a bit cluttered but it's more like Firefox and I like that.

Wow! Nice apps!


The features are cool just by seeing it in the picture.


Can it also be downloaded in android phone?


Thanks!
