Google shows off Chrome for iPad, iPhone

iOS gets quick tab switching, syncing

The iPad and iPhone will be getting their own versions of Google's popular Chrome web browser, the search giant revealed today at its I/O developer conference. The iOS version (free, App Store) of the browser will duplicate the features currently seen in its desktop and Android counterparts.

On stage, Google representatives showed off the new browser at work. Chrome for iOS implements tabbed browsing and quick-switching between tabs. The browser also supports login credential syncing across devices, and automatic autofill. Chrome for iOS also has an "Incognito" mode, allowing for discrete browsing.

The new browser was actually predicted by analysts at Macquarie last month. That prediction assumed that the arrival of Chrome on iOS would spark a new generation of browser wars of the like seen in the mid- to late-nineties.
