Chrome for iOS is getting a couple of new improvements, Google announced on Friday. For the iPad in particular, the browser is now better for multitasking.

"Often on the web, we’re doing a ton of things at once -- reading up on an exotic travel location, catching up on social media or booking a hotel," says product manager AbdelKarim Mardini. "With that in mind, we’re introducing Split View for your iPad (Air 2 or mini 4) to our latest version of Chrome."

The shopping improvement isn't limited to iPad models, but rather is coming to iOS in general.

"We’re also working to make it easier to make purchases on the go," says Mardini. "We’re shopping more often than ever on our phones and tablets, but it can be a pain to re-enter credit card information every time you buy something. That’s why we’re bringing Chrome’s Autofill from desktop and Android to iOS. No matter what device you use, you can shop for what you need easily and securely."

The new features are available if you update Chrome in the App Store.
