    Chrome for iOS brings Google's own browsing experience right to your iPhone and iPad. With support for incognito windows, unlimited tabs, voice search, bookmark sync, and more, there's a lot to like about Chrome. Many third party app developers are even integrating Chrome so you can choose it as the default web browser.

    While Chrome for iPhone and iPad may not be the complete Chrome experience, it's pretty darn close. If you use Chrome on your Mac or PC at home, you can access tabs and browsing history from them right on your iPhone or iPad. Another killer feature of Chrome for iOS that hasn't yet made its way to the built-in Safari browser is translation support. Ever click a link to an article and can't read its contents because it isn't in English? With Safari you'd need to copy and paste that data into a translation app. Chrome can use built-in information from Google translate in order to detect a foreign language and offer to translate it for you on the spot.

    Chrome may not be able to tie into iCloud Keychain but it ties into your Google account seamlessly and can pull down not only browsing history and open tabs, but saved passwords and other data that makes browsing the web between devices more convenient. Anyone already tied into the Google ecosystem may find that Chrome makes iOS and Google integration not so painless. Chrome also integrates nicely with Google's other iOS apps including Google+, Google Maps, Google Search, and many more.
