After the App Store had been released for quite some time, Apple finally started allowing third-party web browsers into its walled garden. A few browser developers have had their browsers available for download for quite some time, but today, Google released an iOS version of its incredibly popular Chrome browser.

As you’d expect with any piece of Google software, you can sign in with your Google account and have all of your information synced quickly and effortlessly. It’s also blistering fast: scrolling is smooth and pages load up very quickly.

Since it is named Google Chrome, you should know that it looks very similar to Chrome across every OS; Google just doesn’t want to give up that familiar Chrome feel. We’ve seen it before on operating systems that require better design – but luckily, it works just fine for both the iPhone and the iPad.

Naturally, Chrome for iOS is free and universal, so you can download it on any of your iDevices provided they’re running iOS 4.3 or later. If you’re a user of Chrome and an iOS device, it seems like a no-brainer to download the browser; just click on the download link below to do so.
