Haha made my day!
Safari is so old fashioned. Shame on you Apple for I am forced to use it as standard.
Apple has the same attitude as M$ with InternetExplorer.
I'd bet a lot of money that chrome is exactly the browser Ive would have liked to see for iOS.
Clean, simple, fast.

I like Chrome but I think we have different definitions of the words, clean, simple and fast.

I can't believe Nitro has been out for so long now and Apple still hasn't figured out how to allow third-party apps to use it.

Oh wait, they probably have, but want all third-party browsers to be inferior so people use Safari. :P

And the "security" argument doesn't hold water. Apps are sandboxed anyway, so a hole in nitro isn't going to let you get very far anyway.

With the help of the jailbreak I made Chrome my default browser and bought Nitrous. Absolutely perfect.
