A new web browsing option for iPhone and iPad users is now available thanks to Google. The Chrome web browser requires iOS 4.3 or later and provides a bevy of features to enhance web browsing on iOS mobile devices. One of the key highlights is the ability to sync your browsing between these devices and your desktop computer.
