Google Streamlines Search for Chrome on iPhone, iPad

google-chrome-logoGoogle has announced improved search and sharing features for its Chrome browser running on Apple's iOS smartphone and tablet platform.

Chrome's update includes features that allow users to share web pages via email, messages and Facebook. Google's update offers an omnibox for streamlined search functionality.

Meanwhile Google also updated its Android Chrome app, improving browser speeds using the V8 JavaScipt engine.

Google said that the Chrome update increases browser speed by over 25 percent. The comparison uses the Octane JavaScript benchmark tool to come up with that statistic.

For iOS users, the addition of the omnibox search function to the mobile browser lets users search for keywords in the longform URL bar instead of the traditional Google search box.

Sharing gets a boost with the ability to share webpages directly from the browser. Users who update Chrome can send webpages to email addresses, the Messages app, and Facebook pages by accessing the Share category through the Menu.

Along with the performance updates, Google announced increased accessibility features for the Chrome app earlier this month. During this year's Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference the firm said that the mobile browser for Chrome will now support Braille on Android 4.1 and over.

All updates are now available for download in the Google Play and Apple App Store.
