iChromy: It’s Like Chrome But For iPad

by on May 30th, 2011

iChromy, a new web browser for iPad, promises to deliver the best of Google Chrome to the iPad. After using it for a bit, I think they’re right!

But do not mistaken iChromy for Google Chrome, as the app is not an official version of Chrome for iPad from Google. It is a separate app developed by Diigio Inc.

The new browser offers users most of the features found in Mobile Safari with a nice blend of Chrome features.

Check out the feature list:

1. Tabs on Top
It’s very easy to open, switch and close tabs.

2. Ominibox
Type search keywords or URL in one box.

3. Extra space for the web content
The address bar will be hidden automatically when you scroll down the page, so you get the the extra space for web content. To show the address bar, just tap the tab again.

4. Read later and Reading list (Offline reading)
One click to save a page to reading list, so you can view them offline. One click to remove a page from the reading list. It’s fast to get pages in and out.

5. Share to different places
Share the page to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Diigo, Instapaper etc.

6. Context search
Search from context menu directly.

7. Open link in new tab
Long press a link and choose different open options.

The developer also notes that in a future update iChromy will receive a ‘.com’ button and an auto-scroll to the top feature when users tap on the status bar.

iChromy is available in the App Store for free.
