Google's new Chrome browser for Apple's iOS seems to be a hit.
Released on Tuesday but available only since yesterday, the new mobile version is the top free app in both the iPhone and iPad categories. Google created dedicated versions for both devices, so iPad users running the browser can take advantage of the tablet's ample 9.7-inch screen.
Mobile Chrome offers some of the same features as its larger desktop cousin, including an integrated address and search box, tabbed browsing, and the ability to switch the position of tabs. An Incognito feature lets you browse securely without having your history tracked.
Chrome for iOS also lets you view your open tabs, bookmarks, and passwords from other computers and devices running the browser. And you can send Web pages from your PC to your iOS device to read them remotely, even if you're not online.
The new app has been garnering rave reviews from the iOS crowd. A peek at the 3,574 ratings tallied so far reveals a full 2,855 users rewarding Chrome with a 5-star thumbs up.
