Google's Chrome browser is now the top free app in the App Store
Google Chrome has quickly grown to become the world’s most popular browser on desktop, and its growth on mobile devices seems almost equally fast - the browser arrived on Ice Cream Sandwich not too long ago with an awesome interface, and now it’s made its way to the iPhone and iPad on the App Store.

Available for free and sporting the same gorgeous interface, Chrome climbed to the top of the free app ranking on the iTunes in mere hours.

Google's Chrome browser is now the top free app in the App Store
We’re not surprised - after all the browser has some killer features apart from the looks as it comes with full syncing between accounts across devices. All the tabs you have opened along with your history and bookmarks get synced so if you left a website on a desktop, you can pick up where you left off on the mobile version.

I really like chrome on Android. But for iOS it's absolutely suck. Browsermark test on ipad2: safari (105 000), chrome (52000). And yes, it's twice slower, it's lags as hell. I hope some updates will bring good performance :)

Because thanks to iOS limits and closure, google cannot use JavaScript V8, but only the s**tty UIWebView.

For android isn't that fast either, Opera and Maxthon are faster by miles.

Maxton FTW, Probably the most underrated Mobile browser out there. That browser's speed is top notch. . .

Only thing that might be faster than it now is the new Firefox and the new Dolphin, but since Chrome came out of Beta on Android, it's recieved a speed update as well, I believe. Either way, I'm using Chrome because I really want the tab and bookmark sync.

Yep Apple is going to ban it because they know it's better than Safari.
