Everything you need to know about Google's Chrome browser for iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Chrome for Mac is Google's powerful, flexible browser originally based on Apple's open-source WebKit rendering engine, but now powered by Google's own Blink fork. It also has Google's powerful V8 JavaScript engine, and hooks into all of Google outstanding services, like Gmail, Maps, Google+, and more. On iPhone and iPad, it offers the same account sync, but due to Apple's security restrictions, has to use WebKit and the slower embedded JavaScript engine.

Google offers iOS developers a way to treat Chrome almost like the default browser

Google has released code that gives developers the ability to have links open directly in Google Chrome instead of Apple's built-in Safari browser, and return users right back to their app with a single tap. A developer has to add Google's code -- a URL scheme with x-callback -- to their app, and you have to have Chrome installed on your device, but the execution is seamless. The example used on the Chromium blog blog is YouTube: tapping on a link in a YouTube listing opens Chrome and provides a back button at the top left to easily return to the YouTube app.

This week, Google pushed out updates to both Gmail and Chrome for iPhone and iPad. Chrome's update was fairly minor, resolving compatibility issues with certain websites including Yahoo!
