Good news for people using Google Chrome on iPhone and iPad: Apple is effectively lifting the speed limits on third-party browsers in iOS 8, allowing all of them to enjoy the same performance as Safari.
Realistically, the policy change will produce just a modest uptick in performance. (I’ve used Chrome in iOS for years, and can’t say it’s ever felt sluggish.) Still, it’s nice to see Apple open up a bit, on this front as well as others.
iOS 8 is coming this fall.
