Ratings and Reviews
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.
Update isn’t what I was hoping for
I’ve used Chrome religiously for a while now (pretty much since I’ve started on the iPhone trend with the 4.) and I’ve usually had a good experience with it. However, I’m not sure I’m completely sold on the new stuff. The bigger tabs are fine, it’s a bit easier to see what’s going on in each, but the bottom bar is just odd. It looks like safari now and that’s an issue, because safari looks dated. Sure, it’s easier to reach, but I feel like it’s taking up more screen space now instead of me having lots of room to maneuver, or bring up the control panel by swiping up. If I had to suggest a change, I’d say that you should have a option to have the old screen type back. Other than that, I’m happy to see that the app has really kept what works, and improved on things that aren’t exactly doing the trick anymore. The consistency of the app is probably the thing I love the most (something companies don’t seem to get APPLE)(bring back the button APPLE). Great app for everyday use with minimal to no glitching. Thanks google!<3
