    Awesome, I am a Chrome user and the closest thing I have found to it on the iPad so far is Diigo browser.

    I clicked on a link from one of the Mac sites and it took me right to it, however when searching the app store it doesn't show up. Strange.
    This is the link:

    That is a nice site. Sadly every link I use gets me the same message that it is no longer available. I hope that when it gets to the AppStore without any links that I might be able to get it.

    It has appeared on my desktop iTunes so I went to download and install and then hopefully to sync to iPad but I get the same message that it is not available and to try again later. On the iPad the message is that it is no longer available! Hopefully tomorrow will be a new day and I will be able to install.

    I followed the link in the news announcement and was able to download the app.

    image-4258562564.jpg it still isn't in the app store when I search,though.

    Got it at last! Quite fun navigating it. Like the sync with desktop aspect.

    I would imagine there will be many issues to be worked out to satisfy some. I remember when the Gmail app was released, they had to pull it the same day because of so many issues. So far Chrome has been working great for what I want it for.

    Works ok for me on my ipad. As expected the Android version blows it away,but that has to do with the OS (or more accurately, how iOS is more locked down, so Google can't give the full functionality).

    I just really wanted my bookmarks to sync between devices, something I had to previously use the paid version of XMarks for, which also forced me to use Safari (ewwww...gross). And of course it didn't sync my open tabs across devices and stuff like Chrome does. Granted XMarks was only $12 a year, but still...12 bucks is 12 bucks that I don't have to pay anymore.

    Too bad Apple's restrictions are crippling Chrome. Well, 'crippling' is too strong a term, but it's not as good as it could be, and not nearly as good as it is on Android. Oh well...

    I love Chrome when I'm at the desk. It's probably the best browser around at the moment IMO.

    That said I don't really feel the need to use it on my iPad. There's nothing it'll do for me that the Safari browser won't. Maybe bookmark syncing or something I guess but that's not much of a deal for me.
