Google Chrome to finally makes an appearance on the iPad, iPhone

While there may be a bit of bad blood between Apple and Google these days (witness the removal of Google Maps in iOS 6 and the removal of "Google" from the search box in Safari), Apple still has a little bit of love to dish out to its hardened foe.
 
The Verge and AnandTech are reporting that Google Chrome will finally make an appearance on iOS devices starting today. This means that fans of the popular browser will now be able to sync their accounts from their desktop/notebooks computers to their iPads and iPhones to simplify the browsing experience.

 
According to The Next Web, Tab and Credentials syncing are all there, along with Incognito mode. The big downer, however, is that Apple still reserves Safari as being the default browser in iOS -- that means that links clicked from within emails or other applications will open Safari every time. However, we're sure the jailbreak community will fix this "problem" within hours of its release.

Now here's an interesting tidbit. Google Chrome is currently only available for use on devices running Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich". As of June 1, Ice Cream Sandwich represents just a 7.1 percent share of the entire Android OS market. However, Chrome for iOS "only" requires a device running iOS 4.3 or higher. That means that nearly 100% of current iOS users will be able to use Chrome.

In other browser news, it was recently revealed that Firefox "Junior" will soon be heading to the iOS App Store.
