At Google I/O in San Francisco today, Google’s Vice President of the Chrome division, Brian Rakowski, continue the surprise announcement left off from yesterday. Today, actually, right now, Google has released it’s popular Chrome web browser for iOS, that includes the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
While it still can’t be made as the default browser within iOS and it still runs on WebKit, the iOS version of Chrome does bring with it the new tabs found in the Android version as well as Chrome Sync. Best of all, it works on devices that are running iOS 4.3 and up, while it’s Android cousin only works on devices running Android 4.0.x, which is about 7-8% of the total Android user base.
Either way, it should make some users happy, now if Apple would just let us “choose” which browser we want as out default, I think we’d all be much happier.
