Google is bringing the Chrome web browser to iOS. You can download the new app for iPhone, iPoud touch, and iPad from the App Store for free.

Chrome for iOS looks an awful lot like Chrome for Android — which means that if you’re using a tablet it looks a lot like Chrome for desktop or laptop computers. On an iPhone, Chrome looks like the Android smartphone version of Chrome.

That means that on an iPad, the tabs are at the top of the page and flip between web pages just by tapping a tab.

On an iPhone, you can switch between tabs by dragging left or right, or view multiple tabs on the same screen, stacked vertically. You can close a tab by dragging it off the screen from this view.

Chrome for iOS automatically synchronizes your search history, passwords, bookmarks, and currently open tabs — so you can sign in with your Google account and pick up where you left off the last time you were using Chrome on your laptop.

The mobile browser also supports Incognito mode — but as you’d probably expect, it doesn’t support Adobe Flash.

Google also has yet to add support for extensions or apps from the Chrome Web Store to its mobile browsers.
