    Maybe Chrome for iOS has Instagram built into it. Reply

    This is great news.i can't wait to hear your review on the app. Hope this is a sign of greater collaboration between Apple & Google returning. So many good things could happen! Reply

    I was hoping for a Chrome or FireFox on iOS. I do use Chrome Sync. How close will it be to desktop Chrome? Will it support the same kind of web apps in the desktop browser.

    And the number 1 question - can you run more than nine tabs?

    Okay, and number 2 question - does it downgrade images like Safari? Like on the Retina display iPad. I'm in agreement with Anand's gripe about the downgrading images in Safari.

    I thought of the 3rd question; does it sync your open web pages, so someone can pick up where they left off from device to device?

    I think Safari should let you choose based on connection type or speed, whether it downgrades web images. The beautiful screen goes mostly untapped in iOS. The interface looks better, but that does equate to actual usage often enough. I'm done on my iOS rant.

    Chrome on Android can open more than 9 tabs, I guess it will be the same on iOS. Reply

    Yes you can open more than 9 tabs - I managed 23 before I got bored. I thought the limit in Safari for iOS was 8 tabs (at least on an iPhone). And yes it does sync pages across devices. Reply

    Any word on Flash support? Reply

    Flash isn't supported on android in Chrome, so that's a big no. Reply

    Mobile Flash isn't maintained by Adobe anymore, they canned it. I understand you can install Flash from Play, but it does nothing. Reply

    Adobe has pronounced mobile Flash dead, so don't expect it on any new devices or applications. It's not even supported on Android 4.1. Reply

    Yes, it is supported on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 4.1 comes with Chrome as the built in browser, but you can download the standard Android browser from Google Play for flash support. Says so right on the Google Play pages for the Nexus 7 Tablet which will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Reply

    You cannot ship third party browser engines on iOS. This is not going to be the real Chrome. It is just going to be some Chrome UI on top of the same UIWebView every other "third party browser", including Firefox Junior, uses. So the performance will be the exactly the same as all the other third party browsers, meaning slower than Mobile Safari. Reply
