    "No Reader Functionality"

    July 13, 2012  |   By louparry

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    If you use Chrome on your desktop, you'll enjoy the familiarity of Chome on iOS.

    Cons

    No Reader functionality. You'll need Instapaper, Readability, or Pocket to be able to convenientiently and comfortably read the text on your iPhone for many web articles.

    Summary

    Unless you use a Read Later app that allows you to reformat and enlarge text, you're going to go blind using Chrome for iOS on the tiny iPhone screen.

    "Privacy Alert!"

    July 11, 2012  |   By sriyantra

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    Does not matter....

    Cons

    These are the folks who just paid millions for tracking our Apple information on Safari illegally...!!!

    Summary

    Why would anyone want to associate themselves with an organization bend towards greed and no corporate morales?

    "Why bother?"

    July 1, 2012  |   By keithsherman

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    It's Chrome.
    Nicer tabs.
    Might be 3 nanoseconds per page quicker. Might.

    Cons

    Might not be 3 nanoseconds per page quicker.
    No Reader. Really. No Reader. On a phone screen, no reader.

    Summary

    Could have been a lot better. Needs to be able to become the default browser, bookmarks as above, but no 1 for me. IT NEEDS A READER.

    "Good but hamstrung by iOS"

    July 1, 2012  |   By rhonindk

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    Works like standard Chrome
    More consistent than Safari for normal use
    Better tab system than Safari
    Google account sync

    Cons

    Limited by OS (Apple issue, not Google)
    Cannot set as default
    Java not really there
    Bookmark bar missing

    Summary

    Is good, would be great if Apple allowed it.
    Jailbreak community adding to it's functionality.
    Unless you are a Safari diehard, this is a better browser. Even with a speec governor imposed by the OS.

    "Good, but needs more features."

    July 1, 2012  |   By EnderDave

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    - By Google.
    - Google account sync, but no Bookmarks. Should have bookmarks pop-up menu.
    - Semi-fast.
    - Search and URL in one.

    Cons

    - No way to get your bookmarks.
    - Pause in page loading.
    - Java-script-less.

    Summary

    Great, but could have greater potential. Needs a built in Java-Script. Needs the ability to get to your bookmarks through some menu.

    Updated on Jul 1, 2012

    All in all, i would use this browser as my primary browser.

    "No good browswer for iOS"

    July 1, 2012  |   By m_chan1

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    - Relatively quick page downloads/caching
    - It's FREE!

    Cons

    - No flash
    - Sometimes it's slow but not related to 3G/Wifi, just slow
    - Still crashes sometimes!!
    - There's a pause whenever you pull up a new page/website!

    Summary

    Browser is dependent on OS of the device.
    It's not bad but not good like Firefox or even... MSIE!

    "Very good; not quite great"

    July 1, 2012  |   By ericschwartz15

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    Seems to load pages faster than Safari. Search/address bar combined. Familiar feel.

    Cons

    No way to set as default browser. This means other apps such as Twitter and shortcuts such as ESPN still take you to Safari.

    Summary

    Once settings can be configured in the iOS settings menu this will completely replace Safari on my devices.

    "Great to see but miss the bookmark bar"

    June 28, 2012  |   By AmandatheLibrarian

    Version: Chrome 19.0.1084.60

    Pros

    Unlimited tabs
    Easy tab re-order
    Great tab navigation system
    Sync between devices for bookmarks and log ins
    Incognito Mode

    Cons

    No bookmark bar
    No ability to send PDFs to iBooks for easier reading

    Summary

    This browser is nice and fast and allows for a lot of flexibility, however that lack of bookmark bar is really a big loss. Here is hoping that get edited with later updates.
