  • Chrome on my macbook eats a lot of battery compared to Safari. How is the ios version compared to Safari on ios 8? Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • Pretty much the same, I've gone back to Safari on both because of this issue. Also since it has updated it has became kind of sluggish and slow to respond for me.
  • Even on this update it looks like Chrome is still using UIWebView so it still isn't using the Nitro JavaScript engine. iOS8 introduced WKWebView which will give Chrome the same speed as Safari. I hope they don't take too long to migrate to the new API.
  • Why is the keyboard still so big? The safari keyboard looks sharper. Google needs to put the ios 8 iphone 6 plus keyboard in the software.
