Google Chrome on iOS 6

C-Net reports about the annual developer conference last Tuesday, in which Google announced that it will port the Chrome Browser and Google Drive to iOS Devices. Google Drive was launched about 10 weeks ago and since then over 10 million people already subscribed to the service. This service, formerly Google Docs, is obviously Google’s answer to the popular Dropbox and the new iCloud of Apple. During the demonstration, there was one killer-feature that catched everyones eye: All the documents in Google Drive are searchable, even when they are not properly labeled. If you store a familypicture in front of the Great Pyramide in Egypt, and you search for: Photo of us at the pyramid”, Google finds it. Even when it is not labeled, Google recognizes the pyramid. Cool ah?

Chrome browser will have the important feature of sharing browser settings and tabs across multiple devices. Of course, only when you are signed in properly on all your devices. Read more about it here.
