This entry was posted on Thursday, July 18, 2013.
It is hard to argue against the fact that Apple's very own Safari browser has the overwhelming majority of users among the numerous iOS browsers available in the App Store. Google has managed to make a splash though, as always, with its Chrome browser. Chrome's easy tab syncing feature, coupled with the huge number of web apps and extensions available for the desktop version of the Google browser, make it the browser of choice for a lot of users across both desktop and mobile. Hence, the latter group of people will be interested to know that Google has brought out an update for their favorite browser. To know more, head on to below the break!
The headlining new feature in the latest version of Chrome is its interoperability with other Google Apps. This means that iOS users now have an option to open links for YouTube, Maps, G+ and Drive in the app, instead of the browser. Voice search gets some improvements as well. Text-to-speech mode is now available for all variations of English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Japanese, and Korean. Toolbar controls are always available when using voice search now. The iPad version of Chrome gets full screen mode as well. An experimental data compression mode has been introduced in the new Chrome.
Accessing browser history is a lot easier than before now.
The usual stability / security improvements and bug fixes are thrown in to this update as well.
