Google has released a big update to its official Chrome browser for iOS devices. Chrome 25 comes with two big features: the ability to quickly recall browsing history by tapping and holding the back button, and the option to share webpages natively with the Messages app.

Over the next few days, Google says it will improve web searches in Chrome by displaying results right in the browser’s omnibox. Space will be maximized to display more results as well.

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.

What if Chrome felt just as smooth as Safari?
What if Chrome felt just as smooth as Safari?

I gave up on Google Chrome for iOS about a day after it was released. Even though my iPhone is jailbroken and I can bypass iOS’s restrictions to set Chrome as my default browser, I missed Safari. Also, Chrome felt considerably slower than the iPhone’s default browser, and that was because Apple handicaps third-party apps by not allowing them to access the lightning-fast Nitro Javascript engine in iOS.

Does the lack of Nitro in your favorite third-party iOS browsers keep you awake at night? Me neither. But that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be cool to make an app like Google Chrome just as fast as Mobile Safari. For jailbreakers, there’s a new tweak out that makes it all possible.
