Google launches Chrome for iOS, Google Compute

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.
