If one looks at this from a technical point of view, it might be correct but that doesn’t mean that Chrome on iPhone will be a big failure. In fact, in real world usage, such technical aspects are sidelined.
Many people want to know whether Google Chrome makes a good browser option on the iPhone or not and for all such concerned people, here is a speed test between the two browsers on the iPhone.
For the speed test, the Google Chrome browser was installed on the latest version of iPhone, the iPhone 4S which has iOS 5.1.1 installed, while on the other hand, to compare the Google Chrome browser with the Safari web browser, an iPhone 4 was placed adjacent to it that had iOS 6 beta 2 installed.
Earlier, the speed test seemed a bit concerning, given the fact that the iPhone 4S has better hardware and a fully functional iOS while the iPhone 4 lags behind the iPhone 4S in terms of hardware and also because it has the beta 2 edition of Apple’s forthcoming operating system installed on it.
However, the speed test is enough to conclude that as opposed to popular belief, the Google Chrome browser does not lag behind the Safari browser on iPhone.
The Google Chrome performed very well on the iPhone 4S, as shown in the video above. However, after the speed test was conducted, many people complained that the speed test wasn’t “fair” because the Chrome was installed on the iPhone 4S.
However, the conductor of the speed test then reversed the scenario, installing Google Chrome on iPhone 4 and the usual Safari web browser on the iPhone 4S and here is how things went down:
The comparison between the two in both scenarios shows that Google Chrome is a very viable option for users to use it as their main browser on the iPhone 4S.
