It seems I spoke too soon. Since I discovered yesterday that Firefox works with iOS I launched a campaign to find the best non-Safari browser functional in iPad 2.
So today I discovered Chrome, which in the past I have been somewhat biased against because I didn’t like some of Google’s policies. But I once tried Chrome with my PC and did enjoy some of the apps.
Getting past my prejudice, I tried Chrome for iOS this morning, which I didn’t even know was possible until today. I thought all things Apple and Android were at odds, period.
I find that Chrome it is even better than Firefox with an old, slow iPad. I particularly like being able to talk into the iPad for web searches (which is built-in with newer Apple devices). That is great. I like talking into machines so much that I also downloaded the Dragon app, which I have tried before. Dragon is a text-to-speech recognition app. I’m using it right now. I guess I’m just getting lazier and lazier and want to get the work done with the least amount of fuss. But I guess that’s good business.
At any rate, I just wanted to pass on that I like Chrome even better than Firefox. Although I may still use Firefox for some applications. Chrome makes it easy to copy and paste web addresses among, you know, Twitter, Facebook and WordPress. So I was able to delete all those apps which were slowing down the iPad. And one of them was crashing way too often.
So things are looking up. I should be getting more news out, more often, to earthpages.org.
