Though Apple safari is one of the best browser, google chrome and its interface comes up as a very strong alternative competitor browser. Goggle has provided the chrome for ipad which is quite stable and supportive browser especially during the iOS6 times when apple is getting rid of google maps and other google OOTB(out of the box) apps.

One can be sure that the browser meets with the minimum expectations of the user and have been thoroughly tested to work efficiently on all google applications.

Lets have a small tour of the browser.

Clarity,precision and issue
Chrome has a very simple and clear interface and portraits all sites with elegance and precision.
Never observed any site glitches or webpage issues on chrome.

Search
As usual chrome adds the browser feature of a strong search user interface. When you try to type anything on the address bar the search suggestions automatically come up from the google search. This is a very strong feature which is helpful in avoiding a visit to google.com
