Good browser but… 2/5
3rd update 4/17 iOS 10.3.1 on an iPhone 6 Plus. constantly hanging. Restarting helps a bit. Uninstalling and reinstalling not at all. Very annoying. Those star ratings I give it just keep going down, down....
Update 2/16 I still love chrome and think it's the best of the mobile browsers. Sadly, I had to delete it; It's chewing through my battery so I have to recharge at least twice daily, if not more. I've tried about 1/2 the browsers, Settling on Firefox but still don't like it. Google-please fix that. I've come to terms with crashes but how can I come to terms with having a nonfunctional phone?
I've been using Chrome on my phone for a long time but now I have Evil iOS 7. Like w/so many other things, it's unstable & crashes regularly (along w/Google Earth). Apple claims some mysterious unnamed app I've installed every time I reset (or replace my phone) is causing the instability; I think it's the operating system. Still, I use it because it's better than Safari. Lots better.
Folks who complain about losing Auto-fill or cookies- check your settings. Allow push notifications. Maybe you can resolve some of these issues easily. Otherwise Google the problem for a fix. Folks who still have iOS 6- don't upgrade until Apple admits they messed up w 7 and they fix it.
Good, but... 3/5
I'd really like to not have to deal with these pop up ads that freeze my screen and make it so that I nearly have to delete and reinstall the app every few days.
Best Browser in the world
Best app 5/5
I love this app, it's so fast
Memory HOG 3/5
I use a MacBook Pro: If you could fix that memory HOG issue I would rate it higher.
Going on a Safari 1/5
Chrome used to be my go-to, but since the last update I can't load many websites I frequent, it crashes, takes forever to load, I can go on but I'm already annoyed. I was never a fan of Safari, but it's been pretty great compared to Chrome so that's where I'll be from now on.
Keeps crashing! 1/5
Dude sooooo freaking slow! Is hardcore lagging on wifi and data, everything!
So bad 2/5
Plz Resolve It 2/5
I want to Block Ads in Cricbuzz
When I was opening Cricbuzz in Chrome of my Iphone I was Getting Ads which is disturbing
Can't play YouTube on one tab and do something on another tab at the same time
I wish it wasn't 17+ this was the fastest browser I had to do my homework since my default search is extremely slow even though I have great wifi.
Can't play YouTube in background 1/5
Time to find a browser that lets me play YouTube in the background/ with the phone locked.
Won't let you play in background anymore. 1/5
I used to use Chrome so I can play YouTube videos audio even after minimizing the app. Now you're not able to do this anymore, and it makes me sad.
Better than Safari 5/5
The app is much better than Safari. I just wish I could make it the default browser. F*ck you apple
Your political activism made me leave 1/5
No easter doodle since 2000 but obscure things get a doodle all the time. Is my faith offensive to you? Over a billion people of every race and nation share that faith. The doodle of the Juno team that's not representative of them but you had to make them more diverse bc their real race is offensive to you. You're like the arts department at a liberal college, you pretend to hate racism but really race is all you think about. Well I'll be telling all of my family to not use google.
massive failure!!!!!!!! 👎🏾😞🤢 1/5
you all have taken the best internet browser in mobile history, and made it crap in less usable windows 98 internet explorer…with dial-up internet. i though someone hacked my account due to slow and unresponsiveness. i figure my passwords were changed and was awaiting incorrect password notices. i ESPECIALLY hate that i can no longer play youtube in the background or with the screen off. the VAST majority of content i watch is audio-only, so i listened without the screen on. NOW i can't take in content without using up battery much, MUCH faster that with the screen being off. for SHAME, Google 😕👎🏾🤢😞
Missing 2 Major Features 3/5
By Koko Brown
Why no clean reader like safari? Why do I need to purchase a third party browser to get a built in Chromecast solution??
Constantly Hijacked 3/5
I like this app, but honestly, it is a bit of a pain to use. At random times it gets hijacked by fake warning messages, the scams where you need to call a number to "fix" your device. Closing and re-opening the browser is useless, so it needs to be deleted and reinstalled. This is getting tiresome.
Today's hijacking was at a library site, of all things.
Google, the tech kings? LOL.
Works fine here
Keeps crashing 1/5
Not what's going on but the app keeps crashing.
I've already uninstalled and reinstalled the app
Google is evil 1/5
Stop using services from this awful company. The invade your privacy and abuse American/foreign workers with H1B visas. The Feds need to break them up
Censorship isn't cool 1/5
Please stop censoring opinions you don't like
Wow... very good 5/5
It's convenient. Chrome has always been my number one browser.
Awesome app 5/5
It's so fast, i am happy about it.
Share button limitations 5/5

I opened a PDF in a separate window and I hit the share button . I could open it in notes and something else , but I was not amble to open it in notability
Needs Bugs Fixed 1/5
By Zoo Zoo the Bear
One of the most irritating glitches happens to be trying to go to my Google Plus brand page. No matter what I try I get bumped back to my Youtube channel. I never had this issue with other browsers.

How to save password for any forums?
No ad block or data saver? Not using 1/5
This browser doesn't support ad blocking like Safari, which means browsing is slower, uses more battery and data. It doesn't even have the old data saving function it used to have. Don't see why I'd need this browser when the stock Safari does a better job.
A waste of space 1/5
Just use Safari. The chrome app is so unreliable that it's practically useless. Need to scroll up? It'll think you want to refresh the page. Need to scroll to the side? It'll go back to the previous page. Need to Google something? It'll sit on a blank screen with the URL for your search and do nothing unless you retype your search query.

Used to be great 2/5

won't let me do stuff 1/5
By Cheesy eel

Where the hell are my bookmarks on this stupid mobile version of Chrome? Who is the asswipe who greenlighted this ridiculous bag of fail? Worse, the stupid browser freezes and crashes. Guess I'll finally have to make the jump to Safari or Firefox. Unbelievable....
Not quite usable enough 3/5
I love chrome for desktop but as soon as I switch over to this, I lose so much functionality.
For example, my bookmarks have no description so they are a series of small icons across the top of my desktop window but in this app, they are just colored boxes with a letter. Because I don't use descriptions I have no way of knowing what the random colors and letters are on here. This is a HUGE barrier to usability.
It does the same when showing open windows on my laptop, there is at least a description but once again it is simply a colored box. Multiple windows for the same website are indistinguishable from one another.
I expected more from this app and from Google, but no matter how often I try, I continue to go right back to Safari because it works much better even without the syncing. Come on Google, pull it together.

Can't display Chinese characters 1/5
The Chinese characters on my app is shown as random numbers and symbols.
Not good 1/5
By The anonomoose
Just get the google app. This is like safari and is hard to use.
Zero response 1/5
By Babs Toyfish
I can't do anything within the app as soon as it opens. Everything I push just does nothing. Zero response. Have the latest update, hard restarts, etc.
iOS updates, browser interface integrity 3/5
I concurrently agree with lag time issues being of noticeable concern and on the forefront of user's reluctance to embrace Chrome on iOS or give it another shot since update issues being resolved in:
But this review in particular had me wondering if the outdated info could, sort of be, a good thing to remind users of best practices in closing app data & prompt further investigative measures for both users & developers in understanding new session browsing list cmd code files, how share features, and 3rd party app functionality should equally be of concern to both.
I'm sure a basic understanding of iOS and how AppStore stringency seemed to leave a bad taste in some Safari user's mouths, but Android and Apple users can now see how Google Play and Google have a rampantly run & wild playground. I'm not suggesting it's all a negative point of contention but, perhaps a foolish notion on my part, that Chrome is fastidious in continuously making itself a product as it touted it set out to be.
I, too, have noticed older app data and my user preferences effecting usage while browsing as of late and hope it's just part of the roll out while bugs and intuitive app behaviors adjust to '2-step verification' and '16 one password' measures.
Fails to launch 1/5
Fails to launch in 20s which results in a crash on launch, on. IPhone6s
Chrome used to be my go to 1/5
By Joe Gagliardi
With the latest update, the browser takes longer than usual to load. Also, you can no longer play music from YouTube etc with the browser minimized/ phone locked. Bummer.
Ducks on iOS 2/5
By Little billy the satanist
If your looking for a good browsing experience just get a Samsung... Ugh I won't load most sites and half the animations don't work plus I have to use this instead of safari to load gifs at all.
No chromecast casting in Chrome? 1/5
What is this, amateur hour? You are the tech giant Google and you don't allow your own mobile chrome browser to cast to your Chromecast device. Good work guys..SMH.
It works great 5/5
It's fast and reliable!!
