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