Chrome for iPhone and iPad is now more stable and faster than ever

Google has pushed an update to its Chrome browser for iPhone and iPad, making it nearly 70 percent more stable as well as much faster. The browser now uses Apple's latest rendering engine, WKWebView, which provides an overall better experience on the iPad and iPhone. In addition, you'll notice Spotlight integration and redesigned icons on the New Tab page. From Google's post:

The latest Chrome for iOS is significantly faster and more stable, so you can pick up where you left off browsing (on any device) without worrying about Chrome crashing on misbehaving webpages. In fact, tests show that the latest version reduces Chrome's crash rate by 70 percent and speeds up JavaScript execution significantly.

You can grab the latest, and most stable Chrome for iPhone from the App Store now.

  • What about adblock integration???? Oh wait, Google would never implement such a feature to damage their income. Lol. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • I may give it another try. I deleted because it crashed too often, which resulted in a frustrating experience. Sent from the iMore App
  • Worth noting that although WKWebView is available in iOS 8, this change only applies to iOS 9 and above. Chrome on iOS 8 will continue to render using UIWebView. Apparently WKWebView in iOS 8 just has too many problems and limitations. More info at https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=423444
