Google Drive and Chrome Browser Coming To iOS

Today Google announced that it is launching a version of Google Chrome browser for the iPad and iPhone. The company says this version will be available on the App Store later in the day. Last month analyst from Macquarie Ben Schacter predicted that Google Chrome browser was coming to iOS.

The Chrome browser for iOS will incorporate a number of features, including tab syncing across devices and incognito mode. However the browser will still run on WebKit-based engine that is required by the App Store guidelines for developers. Also it will not include the Nitro JavaScript engine, which Apple uses to improve Safari's performance. But as noted by The Next Web, there is one major obstacle to Chrome browser on iOS:

“The biggest hurdle that Chrome features, of course, is that it cannot be set to be the default browser on iOS devices, a capability that Apple also reserves for Safari”.

Google Drive that was released earlier this year is also gained a client for iOS.
