In iOS 8, Apple introduced a new page rendering engine in its mobile operating system that brought a number of advantages over the old one UIWebKit. However, migrating to it was not as simple as Google expected.
Today, finally, the Chrome for iOS its version 48 arrived and started to use the new WKWebView.
What's new in version 48.0.2564.87
This version also includes:
- redesigned icons on the “New tab” page: easier access to a larger number of your frequently visited sites;
- Integration with Spotlight: drag down or right on the Home page and search for your Chrome bookmarks.
On the other hand, as Google explains in this support article, some features also had to be removed in this update, including, unfortunately, the data saving mode. I hope you come back soon.
