Google Chrome is finally available for iOS devices. It offers the full-featured browsing experience that users expect from Chrome. It has a clean, easy-to-navigate user interface that makes browsing the web on iOS feel more like using a computer.

Of course, the app needs you to log in with your Google account which allows you to sync your data to your iPhone or iPad. You can easily view all of your bookmarks that are synced with your Google account. You can also view any tabs that are open on another machine. This allows you to browse a website on your computer and jump right on to your iOS device and pick up exactly where you left off.

In addition to syncing websites, the iOS browser also syncs your passwords. This makes logging in to your favorite websites quick and easy, no matter where you are.

You can have unlimited tabs open in Chrome. You fan through the tabs just like you would scroll through a deck of cards. It’s a very clean way to manage your tabs on a smaller screen.

Another awesome feature of this Chrome iOS app is the ability to open windows in Incognito mode. If you don’t want people to be able to see the websites you access on your device, this is the perfect browser for you.


Google Chrome shot straight to the top of the iTunes App Store. Just a short time after release it became the number one free application. Based on experience with the app, it deserves to be at the top.

Google wasn’t content with just releasing an amazing browser. They also launched Google Drive on iOS. It’s not the most fully-featured app, but it allows you to view your files both on and offline, and it’s free.

Have you tried Chrome or Google Drive on iOS? How do you like them? Let us know in the comments!

    The use of bookmarklets (like those from Lastpass) is not posible because there is no visible bookmark bar. So I uninstalled it.

    Although Chrome for iOS is good I still prefer Dolphin for browsing on wifi and I like to use Opera Mini when away from wifi. Even though no browser other than Safari can be set as the default I still choose these as my main Browsers.

    Bear in mind that Chrome can't be set as your default browser and it has significantly slower JavaScript performance than Safari. Both are a result of the limitations Apple puts on third-party app developers.

    Welcome to Apple's iOS! This sort of thing is why some of us prefer Android.

      Chrome is my default browser through the magic of jailbreaking ;)

        And yet even the jailbreakers have to put up with Chrome's slow JavaScript performance, so everyone is effected.
