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.
