INTERNET SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Google has updated its IOS Chrome application, integrating social networks into the web browser.

The Google Chrome 21.0.1180.7 update brings the ability to share webpages from Chrome, bringing it in line with Apple's Safari alternative. Now, tapping the menu button on the right hand side offers a new Share option, which lets you share a website via Google+, Facebook or Twitter.


We downloaded the updated Chrome web browser on our Apple Ipad and found it a nice addition. Once you've allowed Chrome permissions to the social networks, hitting Share will fire up floating boxes in the browser so that you don't have to leave Chrome to while sharing links.

The Google Chrome for Iphone and Ipad update also brings improved language detection, more actionable sync signin error messages and fixes for pages loading black in Incognito mode.

Google Chrome for IOS is available to download for free from the Apple Itunes Store. µ
