The recently announced Google Chrome browser for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has become available in the App Stores worldwide. Chrome brings the web browsing experience everyone loves on the desktop. The app supports syncing of opened tabs and history between devices and allows users to search and enter the address of a webpage in a single box, just like the desktop version. Chrome for iOS features tab based web browsing and allows users to open unlimited number of webpages on their iPhone or iPad. On iPhone, to navigate between the opened tabs users can simply flip through them just like you would fan a deck of cards in your hand. On iPad users can swipe edge to edge to switch tabs.
To start syncing between devices, simply sign in with your Google account. Chrome will automatically sync opened tabs, bookmarks, omnibox data, and passwords from your computer to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch without requiring any effort from your end. The app also allows users to send pages from Chrome on their computer to their iOS device with one click and read them on the go, even if there’s no internet connection.
Just like the desktop version, Chrome for iOS features safe browsing or Incognito mode that allows users to browse the internet without saving the history.
Chrome is a universal app and is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or above for free.
