Ratings and Reviews
Great update with one major flaw: Cannot copy images!
I love Google's design overhaul. It's very aesthetically pleasing now and very seamless to go from the rounded corners of the home screen apps or messages to Chrome! I'm very sensitive to visual aesthetics being that I have sensory-processing sensitivity and it helps me a ton! It's just very gorgeous overall, too, and everything is meticulously designed to be in the most efficient place, in my opinion, especially the search button right in the middle as most of us go straight to Google for so many things first!
Now onto the issue. I can no longer simply copy an image, which is very odd. I can only save an image now. I very frequently use Safari's ability to copy images. I'm not sure if this is due to Google's issue with Getty Images and taking away the "view image" feature--which I myself found a way around--a purposeful intention to prevent direct copying of images, or a design flaw, but either way it makes me have to continue using Safari for the time being because of how often I use that simple feature.
Phenomenal, but with one downside...
This iOS version of Chrome was once the perfect browser, but recent updates have removed one simple thing that I, until now, had taken for granted -- the "Save Image" feature. By that, I don't mean that one can no longer save an image -- you can; What I'm referring to was the ability to save from an "image-only" tab (not sure if there's an actual name for them) and save it in its highest quality. Now, the best I can do is save the thumbnail images from the link that leads to the new tab, but these are of such poor quality as they are not intended to be saved. If there is any image I want to save in its highest quality, I'm resorting to other apps to accomplish this.
This may sound like a back-handed compliment, but the reason I still use Chrome as my go-to browser is because I see no flaws within it aside from the issue mentioned above and it's worth the hassle. I do hope that the option to save an image from its own tab by pressing and holding isn't gone for good, because it's the last piece to the puzzle of a flawless iPhone browser (in my subjective opinion).
Latest update a user-unfriendly bust
Google yet again insists on “fixing” things in Chrome that don’t need fixing. The browser’s latest (December 10, 2017) release now places bookmarks in a hard to access link in the upper right corner of the browser instead of as before where you could open up a new tab and have all your bookmarks clearly laid out in front of you. What once took one tap now takes at least three and viewing and navigating are more cumbersome than ever.
Changing a user interface just to pretend you are making it better is a sure sign of a company without a clue, desperate to show that they on top of things. Heaven knows what havoc they are letting there developers and programmers wreak on other Google offerings but if Chrome is any indication things are not looking good. Making an app less intuitive, less easy to use, is not the way to go and it is inexcusable for Google to not know this.
The days of “Do no evil” are long gone at Google. ‘Do no stupid” is the most we can hope for now and unfortunately this latest misguided “improvement” to Chrome shows no one is paying attention to that idea either anymore.
