For the moment, Google Chrome is arguably the best internet browser for Macs and Windows computers, and now, according to a report by an analyst, you may be able to carry Chrome around in your pocket if you are an iOS device owner. That’s right, Google Chrome is apparently coming to iOS for the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad.
The analyst also reports that it may be released by the end of the second ongoing quarter, and if not, then “definitely” by the end of the year.
Apple won’t be too happy with this news. The reason behind this is that Apple gets 60% of revenue for Google searches made on its mobile Safari browser, while Google gets only 40%, and if Google releases Chrome, then Google will get to keep all the revenue it makes, but since not everyone will be forced to use Chrome, Apple will still earn something.
We really don’t think Apple will reject Chrome just because of this, as it would show that they careless about the overall customer experience.
If you need a refresher on basic Chrome features (the ones on the Android version atleast), they consist of tabbed browsing (upto 100 tabs), automatic and fast bookmark syncing (with Chrome on other devices), incognito browsing, and an overall amazing and minimalistically beautiful interface.
What do you think about this? Will Apple reject it? Are you excited? Let us know in the comments section below:
