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.

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
