Chrome for iOS updated with bandwith savings and translation

The Chrome team announces Chrome 32.0.1700.20 for iPhone and iPad. Personally I have switched to Safari now, but sometimes I use Chrome, for example when I need to have the desktop version of a web page.


These are the new features

  • Translate - When you come across a page written in a language that you don’t understand, just look for the translation bar. One tap and the page is quickly translated for you.
  • Reduce Data Usage - Reduce your data usage by up to 50%. Enable this feature and view your savings: Settings > Bandwidth > Reduce Data Usage.
  • New Tab Page update to make searching faster and easier (This feature is being rolled out and will be available to all users over time, beginning on iPhone)
  • Stability / security improvements and bug fixes

I already got the update on my iPad, and it works pretty good. Hopefully the crashes I have had is gone now.
