chromeGoogle has updated its Chrome browser for iOS to version 26, adding full-screen browsing on the iPhone and iPod touch, new printing options, and the ability to save webpages as PDFs to a Google Drive account.

When scrolling down with full screen browsing, the toolbar at the top of the screen will disappear for more reading real estate. Scrolling back down will cause the bar to reappear.

Printing webpages via the Chrome app can be accomplished via Google Cloud Print or Apple’s AirPrint, and PDF versions of websites can be saved to Google Drive.

What's New in Version 26.0.1410.50
Fullscreen for iPhone and iPod touch
-Scroll the toolbar off the screen to enjoy the full page of content.
-Quickly re-access the omnibox by scrolling back down.

Printing
-Print web pages with Google Cloud Print or AirPrint.
-Save any page as a PDF to Google Drive

It would be nice if they let it run on its own engine.

Printing just needs to die.
It can be very useful when printing postage labels. Buy postage online, print it thru Google Print if I'm not at home. Now I have the ability directly from my iPhone/iPad, even away. I find this very convenient. Airplay is restricted to being on the same wifi.

Is this the first release without WebKit?
No, browsers on iOS have to use Webkit.

@ar3ar2: It is not the end user that they are really afraid of but rather the sites that end user might be tricked into visiting through social engineering. That is what makes it a security vulnerability.

That is very dangerous. Giving them access to Nitro is also dangerous. Both allow you to run unsigned code.
