Ever since Google’s annual I/O event kicked off, a lot of interesting new updates have come our way from the folks at Mountain View, California. Google hosts this event every year to showcase what it has been working on in terms of software and hardware. Among the various announcements, a much awaited one came today. Google Chrome for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been released and is now available for download.
It has been statistically proven that Google Chrome is the number one choice of millions of internet users around the world. Regardless of their medium of usage, be it desktops, laptops, netbooks or Android devices, Google Chrome reigns because it is just that good. For long we have waited for an iOS version of this browser, which is nothing short of amazing. While it had been rumoured once or twice, Google Chrome for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is finally a reality because a couple of hours since its announcement, the iOS version has turned up in the App Store.
Consumers will no doubt be happy with the iOS version of Google Chrome. The browser comes with features we all love and use daily. First and foremost, Google Chrome for iOS packs superior performance just like it’s full fledged counterpart. Furthermore the iOS version offers full Google account services as well as synchronization of data across devices that are configured with one Google account. This means all of your bookmars are available to you on the fly, regardless of whichever device you create them on.
Moreover, Google Chrome for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch carries some basic functionality as well. Take for example tabbed browsing, without which a web browser will surely not be taken seriously in today’s world. Incognito Mode is also present for those who like to cover their tracks while surfing the internet.
Whether or not Google Chrome for iOS will eclipse mobile Safari, remains to be seen. However Chrome loyalists with iOS devices are sure to give this new browser a run on their devices. What’s not to love about Google Chrome for iOS. It offers synchronization, is blazingly fast and is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store. To run Google Chrome on your device, all you need is an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch which supports at least iOS 4.3.
