What's New in Version 44.0.2403.67
• Swipe to navigate: swipe right or left to navigate backward or forward
• Swipe on the address bar to switch tabs
• Stability improvements and bug fixes
Corrected an issue that caused improper display of a settings menu.
I can't say I really had issues with Chrome back in the day. There'd never been anything standout good or bad about it. I've always appreciated the ability to easily move from one tab to another with a simple swipe, and it's the main reason I used Chrome over Safari. So this recent change, along with a weird tendency for Chrome to reload pages every time I even glance at another tab (which it used to almost never do, even with huge pages), means I'll probably be switching back to Safari for the foreseeable future.
It's a real shame when you switch software, not because the alternative has improved, but because the one you're used to keeps getting worse. I sorry, Google. It's not me, it's you.
Bring back easy tab switching!!
So Chrome has lost its best feature that made it better than all the other iOS browser - ability to switch between tabs by swiping at the edge to the screen. I'm aware that I can still swipe between tabs but I need to do it at the address bar...with iPhone 6 the address bar is pretty hard to reach. For iPhone 6 users I guess a double tab is required to bring down the address bar to a reachable distance from the thumb. What happened to basic UI design principles? Make the most used functionality most easily accessible!
New Swipe to Navigate Feature Is Terrible
Chrome is fantastic, but the new update allowing the user to switch between tabs by swiping on the address bar is an improvement, but the swipe to go forward or back is just inconvenient and unnecessary. I need to switch between tabs much more frequently. I'm sure some users disagree though which is why allowing the user to select the use for swiping under settings would be ideal. I'm severely disappointed with this feature.
