Google’s Chrome browser quickly became one of the most popular desktop Web browsers in the world, and now Google has its sites set on mobile. The app just launched for the iPhone and iPad earlier today and after a few short hours of availability, it’s already the No.1 top free app in Apple’s iOS App Store. The app is far more popular than its Android counterpart after less than one day on the market — of course, the Android version is only compatible with 7% of Android devices since it is Ice Cream Sandwich-only — and that’s a pretty impressive feat considering it’s little more than a Safari skin with a sleek UI and desktop sync. That sleek UI is definitely worth checking out though, and Chrome for iOS is available as a free download in the iOS App Store.
