Google has rolled out an update for its Android and iOS applications. In terms of new features, those come to the iOS application. The Android update is pretty much just to fix a couple of nagging bugs that were annoying users of the popular browser. Still, even if it might not be the most exciting update for Android users, fixing bugs is never a bad thing. If you use the browser on iOS, then this update definitely has some cool stuff in store for you.

The first new feature coming to iOS users is Passbook support. This means iOS users can save their boarding passes and other things right from Google’s browser. Of course, in order to use this feature you will need to have iOS 6 installed on your device. It you’ve been holding back on updating to the latest version of iOS, perhaps this will put you over the edge.

Another cool feature is the ability to open PDF files in other applications. If you have a certain PDF reader that you like to use, this feature should come in handy.

The final feature is text encoding detection, which is off by default. You will need to go in settings to turn it on and use the feature. Like the Android update, the new version of the iOS application also includes bug fixes and general performance improvements.

    Chrome is good on desktop but nothing really on smart phones. It crashes most of the time and the implementation is very buggy. Fixit !! google. Stop being Microsoft by importing everything desktop to smartphone. Design and implement a new one for the smartphone.

      Mercury is a better browser by comparison; even Dolphin.
