A quick heads up for Google Chrome users on iPhone and iPad that the already discussed and promised update with on-board Translate and data compression is now live in the App Store.

Translate - When you come across a page written in a language that you don’t understand, just look for the translation bar. One tap and the page is easily translated for you.

Reduce Data Usage - Reduce your data usage by up to 50%. Enable this feature and view your savings: Settings > Bandwidth > Reduce Data Usage.

We've not yet had chance to put either of these two new headline features to the test, but data compressions is sure to be something interesting to those of us bound by strict data capping. If you've put it through its paces already, let us know what you think in the comments below.
