I love Apple products. I hate the Safari browser. I never liked it. So when I heard Chrome was coming to iOS, there was much rejoicing in my head.
Much of the discussion surrounding the release has been the fact that Apple would not allow Google to use the same rendering engine that Safari uses.
Given these limitations, chances are that Chrome on iOS will be significantly slower than on other platforms – and also slower than Apple’s own Safari browser.
From my standpoint, I can say this is not true. Granted, I am not running benchmark tests with a stopwatch in my hand. I am merely saying from my own perspective, despite this supposed limitation, Chrome is still faster at rendering pages than the Safari browser.
I have already moved my Safari icon to the back of the list and the Chrome icon has taken its place.
What about you?
Will you load up the Chrome browser or stick with Safari?
You can download it from the Apple App Store.
