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.
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.

, 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.

will soon be heading to the iOS App Store.

Its okay. Not laid out that well. Tabs blend into each other, more than 2 and it gets silly. Bookmarks and favorites are a few clicks in, stupid and time wasting. Overall, i'd give it a C. Better browser alternatives out there.
