Google Chrome For iOS One-Ups Safari With Sharing To Google+, Facebook, Twitter

Today Google updated its Chrome browser in the iOS App Store with the ability to share webpages to Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. By updating now, Google has beaten Apple’s own Safari browser to the punch. Safari in iOS can share directly to Twitter, and Facebook integration is coming in the fall with iOS 6. Google+ integration is not offered, and given Apple and Google’s rocky relationship, don’t expect to see it ever.

Change log:

What’s New in Version 21.0.1180.77

Share webpages via email or G+, Facebook, Twitter
Stability and security improvements
Many bug fixes addressing user feedback

Sharing webpages is as easy as tapping options window next to the tabs icon. It’s not as fluid as Safari’s sharing sheets, but Facebook integration is definitely a plus. Grab the update for in the App Store now

    I’m loving Chrome on iOS! However they still haven’t fixed the bug which leads perfectly valid SSL certificates to be marked with a big honking security alert page, wrongly telling the user that the site is not trusted!
