Google have launched their much-anticipated browser for the iPhone and iPad, and it is available for free from the App store.
It was only a matter of time before Chrome was available on an iOS device. A few years ago Apple would not approve Apps that emulated core functionality of the device, however the rules have been relaxed and Chrome on iOS became possible.
So why use Chrome on your iOS device?
If you use Chrome elsewhere (PCs, Mac's, etc) you can sync your bookmarks automatically to the iOS device too. Yes, you can do this with Safari but you need to then use Safari on all the devices.
You can also make full use of the tabbed browsing features on Chrome; for example sending a currently open tab on the iOS device to your PC or Mac for reading now, or later.
There is the omniobar for searching bookmarks, history, and Google, all from one place.
That's it really -- if you use Chrome on other devices this makes sense; if not, there is little need.
