Google brings joy to Chrome for iOS users as it announced the latest update of the app, which works on a better web viewer Webkit (WKWebView) instead of the old UIWebView. With this new update, users can surf the web with Chrome at a much greater and stable speed.
Users of Chrome for iOS can now experience negligible crashes due to 70% fall in crash rate and a 25% reduction in reloading of pages. The new Webkit brings much satisfaction to users with better web compatibility, responsiveness and stability. With the new Webkit’s out of process rendering, even if the webview crashes or runs out of memory, it will not result in abrupt closure of the whole browser.
Chrome for iOS promises attractive and fresh features with every update. However, we know that everyone still hopes for enhanced mobile compatibility. We can expect greater improvements for the mobile version within the near future.
