I'm curious about Chrome. It's not my primary desktop browser. I stick with Safari due to convenience of syncing bookmarks. I'm willing to give Chrome a try, but not getting my hopes up. (See Gmail app for reasons why that wouldn't be a good idea).

The issue remains (and maybe this is more on Apple's iOS hands) that the iPad has no options for setting a default browser. It can only be Safari. Not sure I blame them - since it is an Apple device and they have a large part to play in the browser game. This makes all other browsers extra work to use - and for that reason I am not a fan of other iOS browsers.

I agree with you 100%. I just installed it and I really like it so far. Whether I'll ultimately delete it because of the extra work since it can't be the default browser remains to be seen...

Did you download Google Chrome from the American version App Store? It's not available in the Canadian App Store.

I like it, so far so good. The interface is nice and clean and the browsing experience is a good one.

My one gripe is the keyboard. I don't like how they made it where the period and symbols are at the top. I much prefer the default iOS keyboard. I can't really say which one is better overall, but when the entire OS operates one way you'd like your apps not to deviate from this.

I'm loving Chrome so far. The tabs are excellent. About to try that "Open in Chrome" tweak.

Chromizer tweak was just released that adds full screen and pull to refresh. Loving Chrome even more now.
