Well, that didn’t take long at all. Mere hours after hitting the App Store, Google’s brand new Chrome browser for iOS has shot to the top of the charts. The app is currently sitting in the #1 spot on the list of top 25 free iOS apps, and it doesn’t look like it will be going anywhere any time soon.
Google announced Chrome for iOS yesterday during the second keynote of the Google I/O 2012 conference. Fans of Google’s popular desktop browser have been clamoring for a mobile version for quite some time. Android users got their wish earlier this year with a beta version of Chrome for Android. The iOS version hit the App Store a few hours after the keynote. The Android version in Google Play left beta around the same time.
Google Chrome is a universal app, and it’s currently available in the iOS App Store for free. As of now it has 3698 ratings in the App Store, with a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
