Google Chrome for iPhone and iPad now available

Announced earlier today during Google I/O, the Chrome browser has arrived for the iPhone and iPad.

Browse fast with Chrome, now available on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Sign in to sync your personalized Chrome experience from your computer, and bring it with you anywhere you go.

Search fast
• Search and navigate fast, directly from the same box. Choose from results that appear as you type.

Simple, intuitive experience
• Open and quickly switch between an unlimited number of tabs. On your iPhone and iPod touch, flip through tabs the way you would fan a deck of cards. On iPad, swipe from edge to edge to switch tabs.

As noted before, Chrome for iOS supports multi-device sync, so once you sign in, you’ll have access to all your tabs, bookmarks, passwords and omnibox data from your PC/Mac. Incognito mode has even made its way over so users can browse the web without leaving any virtual trails. This is one (free) app current Chrome users need to have their iDevices.

Google Chrome set to arrive on iOS

Great news for all you Chrome users. Google has announced during its annual developer conference (Google I/O) that its Chrome Browser will soon be coming to all iOS devices. This news comes shortly after Google made it known during their keynote that Chrome now has 310 million active users, making it the world’s most popular web browser. Like the Google Drive app (which was just released), Chrome for the iPhone and iPad will arrive on the App Store later today. The app’s biggest feature will be its sync ability, where tabs, passwords, history and settings will be automatically made available whenever users log in. This means that you’ll soon be able to browser jump from a PC/Mac to your iDevice and pick up where you left off, something that Yahoo! implemented through its recently released Axis browser.

As an avid Chrome user myself, I can’t wait to be able to sync all my tabs and bookmarks between my iPhone/iPad and iMac. We’ll keep you posted on when Chrome for iOS will slip into the App Store.
