    I want to use Chrome on iOS so badly, I just can't break the habit of swiping from edge to go back.

    I love it.

    It's great, specially for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

    The only thing that annoys me is that you can't swipe from left to right to go back - it currently switches tabs

    Came here to post this.

    It's just so amazingly simple.

    This is interesting. What's your finger doing?

      hadn't the time to animate this after taking the video.

      you can pull down, if the page you are viewing is scrolled all the way up. default selection after pulling is refresh. while keeping the touch you can move your finger left or right to create a new tab or close the current one.

    Oh and guys, if you're loving Chrome for iOS, I think it could use some help in the reviews—there seems to be a lot of unhappy folks.

    I just gave Chrome a good review because j appreciate the hard work they've been doing.

    =)

    I'm loving the new features to Chrome for iOS.

    Edge swipe to switch tabs is also another favorite. I feel bad for my android friends who lost the edge swipe to switch tabs feature. They have to swipe from the search bar to switch tabs which takes away from the experience.

    The Safari way of swiping to go back / forward is cool, but I'll gladly trade that for swiping to switch tabs.

    Also note the different scrolling behaviour from Safari. Although I'm sure the scrolling change was implemented a few updates ago but prior to that, scrolling was similar in both Chrome and Safari.

    Can someone explain why Google can do this in iOS but not on Android?

      Maybe it's testing the waters with a niche audience? Chrome users on iOS are not the majority of users, so they can push it to the market and watch the feedback without annoying millions of people. If it works out maybe we'll see it :)

        I would just like to add to your point, that because Apple will not allow Chrome to port its browser engine, Blink, they may be forced to seek other ways of differentiating from Safari.

        but why not their Chrome Beta app?

    Pretty sweet interaction. I wonder how well it couples with pull to refresh elements in web apps?

    This is pretty cool. Did they also just get rid of the desktop-style tabs? (I haven't tried chrome for a while, installed it just to try the interaction you linked to).

    How can it be? Is it a jailbreak tweak or what? When I try, it looks like :D https://www.dropbox.com/s/e9zgtylbthntcup/chrome.mov?dl=0
