Chrome Web Browser by Google brings the familiar Chrome interface to your iOS device, allowing you to browse just like you would on your computer. With impressive speed and lots of your favorite options, you can check out your favorite sites or take care of business quickly while on the go with this app.

Pros

Speedy: This browser works well with iOS to provide quick loading speeds. While it may not be as fast as Chrome on your computer, there's a noticeable difference between this browser and Safari on mobile devices.

Synced bookmarks: If you log in to your Chrome account through the app, you can sync your bookmarks and tabs across your devices. That means you can pick up reading an article or browsing online right where you left off no matter where you are.

Data usage reduction: This browser also has a data usage reduction feature that can be turned on and off at will. It's useful when you're not connected to Wi-Fi to help you avoid using too much data and incurring overage charges while also improving loading times. And when you're back on Wi-Fi, you can just turn it off and use your browser as normal.

Cons

Ok interface: While it's clear how to search online as soon as you open this app, finding some of the other features can take some poking around. For instance, figuring out how to open a new tab is a little confusing initially. But once you get the hang of the interface, it makes sense where things are.

Bottom Line

Chrome Web Browser is a useful and convenient alternative to Safari on your iPhone or iPad. It runs smoothly, offers a nice set of features, and is free to download and use without limits.
