Chrome Update Brings Easier Google Searching, Access To Tab History And More
One of our Top 10 Free iPhone Apps of 2012 has just been updated for the first time this year. Google’s popular Chrome browser has added a slate new features with the update. First up, in version 25.0.1364.86 of the app, a long press on the back button quickly allows users to access any page in their tab history. According to Google’s official Chrome blog, searching with Google will now become even easier. In a feature that will be rolling out in the coming weeks, users can view their search term in the omnibox instead of the long search URL. That will allow search queries to be quickly refined and more content to view on the results page.

Chrome is a universal app designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded in the App Store now.
