For you Chrome browser fans that are also iPad users, since it won't look like Google will release a version of Chrome for the iPad anytime soon, there's iChromy. iChromy is an app that looks and feels like the Chrome browser with tabs on the top of the screen and an omnibox that will allow you to perform searches as well as enter URLs. Pages can be saved and read offline, as well as they can be sent to other third party applications like Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper and Diigo. Diigo is the creator of iChromy.

There are, as expected, some features that are missing from this tablet browser that others have such as the ability to set a web page to the homescreen. The speed and stability of iChromy, however, work pretty well which is useful for tabbed browsing. iChromy reloads tabs that need to be accessed dynamically to avoid memory issues with having multiple browsers open. The app is currently free but Diigo, the developer says that they will release a premium version of the app, with more features in the near future.
