I was surprised to see an ad for Chrome when visiting Google’s homepage in Safari for iPad: “Browse fast on your iPad. Install Google Chrome.” Chrome for iOS is not fast, it’s a lot slower than Safari and that’s not Google’s fault. It’s even a little bit slower than other third-party browsers.
Even the Chrome for iOS homepage claims that you can “browse fast and sign in to bring your Chrome experience from your computer, anywhere you go”. Sure, Chrome combines the address bar and the search box, preloads web pages and shows the most visited pages, but it’s not a faster browser than Safari.
