Google’s Chrome for iOS Is More Like a Chrome-Plated Apple
In several ways, Chrome for iOS is similar to Google’s browser on other operating systems.
The iPhone and iPad browser, announced earlier on Thursday and now available from the App Store, features some of its most popular features, including a private incognito mode and the ability to view open tabs and pages from other devices.
That’s a lot of jargon, but it boils down to this: Chrome for iOS will be slow — significantly slower at many tasks than Apple’s built-in browser.
This isn’t unique to Chrome. All browsers are required to use Apple’s browser engine, whether it is Dolphin or Yahoo Axis or any number of other third-party browsers.
