Google’s Chrome browser is now No. 1 in Apple’s App Store for free apps.
The mobile browser went live for iPhone and iPad owners yesterday, and now it holds the top spot for both device categories. The app notably allows users to view open tabs, bookmarks, and other browser particulars running on other computers and devices. Users can even send pages from Chrome on a computer to their iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with “one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline.”
Chrome for iOS already touts 4.5-stars based on over 3,500 reviews as of press time. Despite the glowing accolades, some folks are noticing its lack of Apple-given attention:
So just to be clear, Chrome is neither new or noteworthy in the app store even though it took less than a day to be #1? http://t.co/k2cvd0mD—
