Google The second Google i/o keynote was far less fascinating than the first one. The web is abuzz about Chrome for iOS, but the fact of the matter is that this, like all other non-Safari iOS browsers, just a wrapper around Safari's WebKit - and, no access to Apple's Nitro, so worse JavaScript performance. Worse yet, you can't even set it as a default browser because Apple doesn't allow as such. In other words, the ability to sync your stuff with Chrome-proper is nice, but for the rest, it's just mobile Safari. Get it from the App Store. Google also announced Google Compute, yet another direct attack on Amazon.

No longer available. Looks like Google pulled it due to bugs like with GMail and Google+. Or did Apple?

I managed to download it via iTunes and then sync up with my iPhone.

I ended up getting it via my US iTunes account. The UK store refused to let it download. It's working now though.

For some reason it didn't show up when I searched for it, but I did grab it from the link provided on OSnews. All in all, I prefer the interface of Atomic web browser to mobile Chrome. Sure Chrome looks different, but it works in a similar way to Safari (e.g. no tabs across the screen but within a tabs button). I like the desktop-style interface of Atomic, with tab buttons right below the address bar that you can hide or show as you please, much better.

Chrome's nice, but it's nowhere near as feature-complete as iCabMobile especially for its usefulness on jailbroken devices. Feels just as restricted as Mobile Safari

iCab is worth it just for the download manager and user agent changer alone.
