Google Chrome for iOS brings the preferred Internet browser to your iPhone or iPad.

Pros

All data on all devices: Add your Google account or accounts to get your Chrome tabs, bookmarks, history, and other settings on all your devices.

Search by voice: Allow Chrome access to your microphone, click the Google Voice Search symbol, and speak your search query into your phone.

Innovative tab layout: Rather than clogging your screen with annoying tabs, Chrome presents one minimal box on the top-right corner that tells you how many tabs you have open. Click this box to pull up the tabs and switch between them. To easily close a tab, swipe from left to right.

Incognito mode: Click Incognito to search privately. Pages you view in Incognito tabs disappear from your history, cookies, and search after closure. Switch back and forth between regular and Incognito tabs with side-to-side swiping.

Pull gestures: The pull-down-to-reload gesture is an easy way to reload pages while on the go. Or you can pull down and to the left to open a new tab, or pull down and to the right to close your current tab.

Support for password managers: Chrome for iOS supports 1Password, LastPass, and others.

Cons

No Chrome extension support: Chrome, like many third-party browsers on iOS, is still built on top of iOS WebKit, Apple's mobile Web browsing engine. Unfortunately, that means that desktop browser extensions for Chrome will not be compatible since they were built for Google's Web engine.

Bottom Line

Chrome for iOS is one of the best iOS browsing apps we've tried.

What's new in version 56.0.2924.79
Scan a QR code or barcode by using 3D Touch on the app logo or searching for "QR" in Spotlight. If you don't see it immediately, launch Chrome and wait a few seconds then try again. We've redesigned the tab switcher layout on iPad to make it easier to access your open sites.
