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.

Internet realizes Chrome doesn't keep passwords secure, should also realize we have apps for that!
