Chrome for iOS to add malware protection to mobile version
Google has announced its latest update of Chrome for iOS, featuring Safe Browsing malware protection akin to what is available for the desktop application. Chrome can now provide warnings when the user is about to visit a potentially dangerous site.
In addition to the security update, Chrome will introduce a Google Translate service to iOS this week. The update allows users to translate a page written in another language to one's native tongue. Google's Chrome browser app for iOS can be downloaded from iTunes for free.
