Because Google will not release the Chrome web browser to the iPad soon, yesterday app maker Diigo succeeded to fill this void with an alternative one called iChromy.

The free alternative iPad browser is free in the App Store and comes with these features:

  • Tabs at the top of the screen
  • Single bar handles web addresses and searches
  • A star-shaped bookmark button to the right of the URL bar
  • The important option is, When tab overload threatens to crash the browser, iChromy quietly shifts memory away from background tabs that you haven’t opened in a while. These pages reload when you access them again, but it’s a small price to pay for having lots of open tabs with minimal crashes.
  • Built-in sharing with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and others
  • Ability of sending pages to Instapaper or store them in an offline reading list
  • A handy “copy” button for snagging URLs.

BUT iChromy missing some features (similar with Safari) such as:

  • Dropbox connectivity
  • Private browsing
  • Full-screen browsing
  • Swipe gestures
  • Multiple search sources
  • Find in page
  • Adjustable font sizes
  • User agent controls
  • Printing option
  • Setting an app as a home screen icon
  • The virtual URL keyboard lacks a dedicated “.com” button
  • You can’t tap the top of the screen to jump to the top of a web page
  • No suggested search results as you type

Anyway, The company later plans to offer a “pro” version of iChromy with advanced features. (iChromy, of course, has the ability to send web pages to Diigo.)
You can download iChromy for free from HERE.
