Of all websites I search and research trying to find a true answer. If I could suggest searching different websites is a waste of time number one you could be concentrating on the subject matter at hand. Number two who really wants to waste their time in the future effort which has no end. Isn’t that why we have search engine. Number three how much time do you waste searching around for a basic format or answer without having to read endless questions. I think truly in my heart that I have I deep sense of loss for the future generations that are never truly narrow down A very simple question almost like this text,

App getting worse and not listening to the community
I honestly switched to this from safari cause the middle search bar button allowed you to type on the search bar a lot easier. Now it's a new tab button, the community has expressed time and time again about how stupid this is and it has made reaching the search bar at the top hard especially on bigger phones. Despite the fanfare, the team working on this app has never done anything to solve this issue and my experience with this app has been going down ever since. As of now I'll stop using this app and new features that they push out for this app has negligible gain while they don't solve the issues that users feedback. I don't want to use a product where the team doesn't listen to their community and do what they want to do instead of what consumers want. I have feedback this issue time and time again on their support page to no constructive response so it's finally time I switch to other browsers like Firefox with the search bar at the bottom.

Terrible privacy problems. Find a better browser
It lets me sync my bookmarks with my laptop (on which I also use Chrome). That’s a nice feature. But it’s so mind-blowingly awful with privacy that I’ve deleted it from all mobile devices. iOS Chrome is completely lacking in every basic privacy control one would expect of any browser built after 2014. This thing doesn’t just track and save everything you do; it presents a list of all recently-visited sites any time you open a new tab... and there’s no way to opt out of this or turn it off. You can’t even delete in bulk; you have to remove these recently-visited sites one by one unless you’re willing to clear your entire browser history. The new tab also automatically loads a selection of news stories, and there’s no way to turn off that feature. It’s like logging onto AOL circa 1996. Sure, you could use incognito mode, but it shouldn’t be an all or nothing choice. If I want to have my cookies and history saved without my search history being immediately presented to anyone who picks up my iPad, that should be an option. (And why, when visiting Google sites, does it assume I want to use the most recently added Google account used in my Gmail app? Wouldn't it make more sense to assume I'm using the default/primary one if it's going to autofill the login screen? And why make it so difficult to log out so that I can log in to the proper account?)

They removed the ability to log in iPad & sync across devices
In classic Google fashion, they inexplicably made a horrible decision and removed the Settings menu option from the browser entirely, leaving no way to log in and sync passwords, bookmarks, etc across devices. This is one of the key features that has kept me using Chrome and it’s gone now. I would recommend using a different browser entirely because you might Chrome will keep working in the way it has been and then their insanely tone-deaf UX team will remove a key feature that you depend on, without even updating the documentation. If you check the support page for the iOS version, it still says the Settings menu option is there. It even highlights this feature in the app description above here in the App Store! This is extremely misleading. Now I have to embark on migrating all of my bookmarks and other information over to a different browser because Chrome is an unreliable waste of time.

No Real Desktop Browser Support
The fact that the screenshots for this app are in portrait should tell you all you really need to know about this app. With the initial release of iPadOS, Apple brought desktop browsing support to the iPad Pro. Google Chrome has been extremely slow in receiving updates to bring it up to par, and it's still miles away. Even when the Request Desktop Site option is enabled, it is hit or miss. Usually miss for me. And there's no inspect window support in this app, so if you're looking to use your iPad for quick webkit debugging, use Safari. Don't waste your time downloading this app. Transfer your passwords over to keychain and get comfortable with Safari as it has better password support and, like Google Chrome, will inform you whenever your passwords have been compromised. I'm in no way affiliated with Apple or the Safari development team, but I am a developer that has been perpetually let down by Google's iOS and iPadOS development team.

Suddenly Became The Worst
All of the sudden I began getting this “Server Error We’re Sorry but it appears that there has been an internal server error while processing your request. Our engineers have been notified and are working to resolve the issue. Please try again later.” that is the only thing that shows on both Google Chrome and Google. I’ve uninstalled, cleared cookies, cleared cache, deleted data, I’ve done every single update for both Chrome and Google as well as my phone and I’ve done security checks, virus checks and several other privacy measures to make sure that my phone is secured and protected and updated- but nothing helps. If I uninstall, clear cookies and cache, and data and then install Chrome and Google again- but don’t sign in to my google account- then Chrome and Google will work. Using Chrome and Google are both useless to me unless I’m able to be signed in to my account- so what happened? Please fix this issue.

ever since the latest IOS update, google doesn’t load at ALL.
i’m losing my mind over this, seriously. every website loads within a millisecond because i have t-mobiles unlimited 5g high speed data plan and i have bars almost all the time, but whenever i open chrome (google is the default browser) IT NEVER LOADS. every other website works perfectly fine. i tried reinstalling the app. i tried deleting all the cache. i tried resetting my network settings on my phone. i tried getting tmobile themselves to reset my network and literally even change cell towers and nothing. i EVEN REPLACED MY PHONE. and google doesn’t load. i cannot understand this whatsoever and nothing helps. what’s stupid is the website sometimes loads 1/10 times but if i try going back to google it doesn’t again. like google is the fundamental website EVERYONE uses to navigate the internet. and i cannot use it. so i’m uninstalling this app and never using it again.

No Dev Tools Limits This App
This app is wonderful for use anywhere you’re roaming, what with syncing data and keeping bookmarks organized between devices. That’s honestly not difficult; the difficult stuff, however, is what I need for this and other mobile browser apps to perform, like dropping a cached file with greater ease or refreshing a simple update on a style sheet. The fact this and other browser apps don’t extend developer tools to their mobile apps is a MAJOR series of demerits that takes what COULD be a four or five-star app and significantly diminishes it. If you’re not a developer, it won’t matter to you, but I’ve grown EXHAUSTED with constantly wiping EVERYTHING to to get a minor refresh, and shame on Google for not making strides — 15 years into the mobile revolution — to make that feature a part of this app.

Please read our suggestions… small feature! Plz
It would make a WORLD of difference for someone like me who has hundreds of tabs & windows open (IPad & laptop) at any given time…... a small timeline view/hint when you’re scrolling through all open tabs in that window - like when the tab was first opened/created or modified last , or something similar. Another addition - To Name/title any open Chrome window. Not only folders of open tabs like Safari allows (bc that syncs to any open window) or bookmarks folders. But the windows themselves. I like to have multiple windows open at a time so this would be a small help when sorting through all my shhhtuff. Hope y’all read this soon, otherwise great work!

Search inside image
If your a programmer for this app I am begging and pleading with you to do something about “search inside image” on IPhone. Every time I click on an image a banner appears , every, single, time. Search inside image. Search inside image. I have spent hours to days looking for some way to shut it off. I have a hyper active brain and every time that flashes it I have to wait for it to disappear to view and enjoy the image. Click on the next one same thing. I sadly have started looking for other apps which is to bad because I like Chrome. Please look into your heart and give us an option to shut this off. For now I will be using something different. I will check back from time to time, but if this is something google thinks can give them an extra penny or two then I am not holding my breath. Please do the right thing.

Close All Option Needs to Be Fixed!!!!
I use chrome as my preferred browser of choice. On the desktop, it’s great. However, the app for iPhone need some improvement. I am an individual that likes to keep MANY web browser tabs open, I mean upwards of 30+ tabs, either for reminders, quick reference, or follow up on reading something that I didn’t have time to. I absolutely HATE that the “close all” command is located on the lower left side of the screen. I have accidentally pressed that option on more than one occasion and it’s infuriating that there is not a simple “Are you sure you want to close all tabs” prompt. I wish that Google would consider this or at least allow users to restore ALL closed tabs and not just “recent” tabs. Google please consider this!!!!

New window drag option
This happens so many times it’s a nuisance. When using the app on my iPad, sometimes I will drag the tabs around to organize them and it will create a new window by accident when I didn’t meant them to. Then I have to copy and paste the link back into my current window and exit the new window away. However when I do this I believe I closed the new window, so when I go back on the chrome app guess what... all my 100 tabs are replaced by this one singular new window. Now I have to waste my time going back to my history trying to gain back all the lost tabs I had. If this keeps happening I might have to use a different browser. I only use this app because i already have the chrome browser downloaded on all my devices and I like the feature of seeing my bookmarks all shared between my devices. I’m praying that they create a disable option for this.

Old look is dead
Google officially killed the old look of Chrome. You used to be able to revert to the older and more functional layout by adjusting hidden flags. This was removed in the latest update and I really hate it. The new look makes everything too big. Finding tabs is actually harder and the new tab manager makes tabs not “feel” like web pages. Every time I open a new tab I almost hit the “close all” button which would be catastrophic. This looks closer to Safari than ever. If I wanted Safari, I’d just use it since it’s already in my phone. Google should be setting themselves apart and pushing the standards and not following other tech companies. I also just don’t understand why the new “in” look is flat graphics, oversized buttons or icons, and huge amounts of wasted whitespace. I have a large phone. I don’t need help with giant menus and buttons that look like they were designed for a senior citizen who forgot their glasses. And what does Google have against labels on the bottom menu bar and in the tab switcher? Sometimes I like to read what I’m about to select before I touch it. The one good thing is the compact menu. It’s concise and reachable. Bring back the customizability that used to exist in software and let me choose how I make my own device look. I don’t need to be forced into the user experience that you think I want.

Address bar update.
I've been using Google Chrome on my iPhone instead of Safari for the past 3-4 years. Always been a big fan. They recently updated the app and now you can move the address bar down to the bottom, like Safari's update about a year ago. I do find it pretty convenient since I have the iPhone 15 Pro Max version, but the one thing I don't like about it is that as soon as you click on the address bar to type, it goes right back up to where it used to be. Kind of defeating the purpose of having the address bar at the bottom. Once they address this, I would happily update my rating to 5 stars, as it will not change my decision in using Google Chrome vs Safari

Problem saving bookmarks
Right now, it is really annoying to save bookmarks. My Bookmark Bar has 14 main folders and 186 subfolders (yes, I just counted), plus hundreds of actual bookmarked sites. The bookmarked sites don't show up while I try to save a new bookmark... but the 186 subfolders do. So if I need to save a new bookmark, this app forces me to scroll past ALL of my folders and subfolders (which this app alphabetizes - meaning they are NOT arranged in the order I have them on desktop) to FIND the folder I want to Save Bookmark in. This is ridiculous. I would LOVE to be able to FIRST select one of the 14 main folders in my Bookmarks Bar, and THEN scroll to the correct subfolder and simply save the new bookmark. Funny enough, this is the EXACT system you have in place for FINDING a bookmark that I've already saved. Sooo... you have a great system in place for FINDING a bookmark, but SAVING A NEW ONE is a nightmare. If you could find it in your hearts to update this, I'd be hugely grateful!!

Despite the fact that I have checked my settings numerous times and have “block pop-ups” enabled, I continue to be bombarded by quite obviously malicious pop-ups. The only options I have are to press “ok” and quickly close the tab that is now open to a malicious site, or completely delete the app every time that happens (about every 45 seconds on certain sites.) I used to love using this app for all of my internet browsing, but it has been rendered unusable. Constantly getting pop-ups on wikipedia pages and articles from reputable sources (which I have no problems with on my computer) is absolutely unacceptable. I love google products and the company, and if this problem is fixed then I will most certainly continue using this app as my main browser, but for now I simply cannot because I have to protect my device and my security. Truly disappointing.

New "Start Surface" is terrible
For some reason, Chrome decided to replicate the universally hated and immediately revoked Firefox experiment where instead of simply returning to your last tab when you open the app, it opens a useless new tab page with a "Return to last tab" button. This isn't useful and starts my Chrome experience with annoyance and frustration as I have to click around to get back to where I was, instead of just being there already. Firefox had to revert this immediately because it's awful and annoying; I don't know why Chrome is now imitating it. It's also (deliberately?) well hidden in chrome://flags - not findable by searching "new" or "tab" or "return", but only if you already know the keyword "Start Surface". At least you can disable it if you do manage to find it, but it shouldn't be the default AND it should be manageable in the top-level settings.

Change to look of chrome
I first have to say that I love chrome. It was always my browser of choice. I just updated it and now it’s not as good. I’m sure bugs were fixed and things were improved but what I really don’t like about the new chrome is the new set look. The think I loved about the only look was the sharpness of everything. It looked really good and totally different from any browser. Then you roll out this new look, and let me say that it is terrible the sharpness is gone and everything feels like it’s made for the elderly and children. It is terrible looking. Everything is sized up to be bigger and everything looks like it’s child guarded. It just doesn’t look right. I’ve searched for a way to change it back but that doesn't seem to be an option. I would delete this review if an option was made to allow you to change it back.

Overall a great browser for mobile with some kinks
I love chrome mostly because it saves my passwords and bookmarks in the same place. I use chrome on my PC, and its also nice to see my open tabs on my iPad or phone when I walk into another room and forget what the screen said. Writing this reveiew because I just found a pretty horrendous bug in this app involving the Gmail web client on the iPad 9.6 running iOS 11.4. Was trying to send an email within the “compose” popup within the Chrome Browser. I typed my whole email then selected to add an attachment. I didn’t see my file, so I selected to cancel the file upload. This brought me to a blank Chrome logo and the Chrome app was unresponsive. I was forced to reset the app causing me to lose my work. Hope they fix this quick because its a repro rate of 100%.

Unnecessary Changes
I really liked the interface of Chrome. It was fairly similar to adjust to from the PC because they are so similar. Now I have to adapt to this new interface that looks similar to Safari. I dislike Safari's interface with the tabs and other settings in a low bar because I felt that it was inconvenient. Now that Chrome has switched to this new interface, I find it very difficult to adjust my mind on this system especially since this is the browser that I only use. I do like that I can access many of the settings (e.g. History) without having to open up a new tab. Other than this, there weren't any issues the previous interface. It would be lovely if the developers reach back for a conversation with this. If not, then either give us the option to use the previous interface or undo the update.

Stopped using due to full screen spam ads
I've always enjoyed using Chrome as my default browser on iPhone, until about two months ago i began experiencing spam ads that would pop up and take over the entire app functioning. Even when I would close the window and the app and reopen it, the ad would pop up again. There was no option except to click on the ad, which one time i did, and it led me to further spam pages that asked me for my personal info. I have even deleted the app from my phone and then downloaded it again, but inevitably the same thing would happen again. Because of this, unfortunately I have had to stop using Chrome. This problem has not occurred with Safari, so for now I'm sticking with that. I'm writing this in the hopes that it can be addressed, so I can safely return to using Chrome again. Thank you!

Not recommended even safari is better
You can read all the other reviews and see how many problems there are with this app but the one that frustrates me most is of how incompatible it is. First of all I’ve been searching everywhere for a browser that supports extensions on iOS/iPad/phone and every time I try to download an extension on that browser it says “download on chrome” but I already downloaded chrome but after I actually go to your chrome app it doesn’t work this is such a hassle. One star because I’ve been searching so much for a solution and all this app has been doing is dragging me to download your chrome app which doesn’t even work I would rather prefer safari over this piece of garbage because it is faster and much more reliable. Never thought a chrome product would be this crappy, really makes the company look bad.

LOVE the Update!
No more thumb stretch, HOORAY!!! I LOVE that you moved the back button and tabs down to the bottom! My thumb thanks you as well. I try to never use Safari so I can’t say if it looks like Safari as the Reviewer who didn’t care for the update mentioned. Frankly, I only care about the “useability” (this should be a word and not 2 words). I’m a busy mom with young kids so I need to be able to navigate quickly and switch between saved tabs often for teams schedules and recipes and shopping and poison control. You have made that infinitely easier with this update. BAM 6 screen views at once, swipe for 6 more....GAME CHANGER....dogs that ate entire packages of Oreos saved! Thank you.

Constant Crashing
Chrome has been my main browser for yearsss. As of lately, it constantly crashes. Everytime I close out of it to check on a different app, when I open it back up I have to Restore my tabs. But there have been multiple times when I open it up and it doesn’t give me the option to restore. I have to scroll and scroll and scroll through my history to try and find the pages I had open. The first time it did it was when I had certain tabs up for a long time and it was impossible to find them again since the date I originally opened them were more than a week or two old. Wish they would fix it. An update late last year had this same kind of bug, but I thought it had been fixed. Pleaaase get this corrected!

Updates NOT Thoroughly Tested!
I have a love/hate relationship with Chrome. It’s pretty darn good, WHEN it functions properly. However, numerous times over the last few years, they’ve released versions which did not work, sometimes in bizarre and inconsistent ways. I realize they have a lot of devices/models to test upon, but that’s part of software development. If you’re not going to fully test your software for a device, then take it off the compatibility list in the App Store. This last update, two days ago, was fine until today. It should have gotten an emergency update. No, I’m not going to uninstall and reinstall it. That’s not my job. If you want me to use your app, then make it where it never gets this messed up. (I’m just speculating about what a so-called support person might suggest.) I love the convenience of having my settings and some other things shared across devices. That said, I have issues with whatever else they may be doing with my various information. It’s quite clear that they are not fully abiding by their stated data collection standards. Data is being collected on my browser usage even in “private” mode. Who knows where that’s going or to whom?

Increasingly poor & invasive updates
Breaking my silence in the 7yrs I’ve shopped in the App Store w/o one review to express my frustration w/ the most recent update to the Google Chrome app that I’m using on my new generation iPad. One, it auto-updated; so that p*ssed me off, on sight. Then, when I saw how utterly hideous the pages were, that added a whole other level of outrage. I’ve been too busy this week to research ways to reverse the update (like I successfully did with my phone) and got a feel for the performance, which - not to my surprise - is also lackluster. Additionally, the bottom toolbar that holds the autocorrect/-fill covers the content near the bottom of the page, which was not the case in previous versions. So not only am I being force-fed your incompetence, I will also be forced to look at your ugly mug during that realization..? No bueno. The Google’s privacy violations were more than enough, actively researching alternatives.

What happened to the ability to switch between accounts?
I’m into kpop, I do kpop voting, I have multiple accounts and for years I have been able to just click on the picture in the right hand corner and choose to switch to one of my saved accounts. Now when I try to do it, I can click the account and I have the option to manage the account or delete it. When I click manage and go into it, when I go out of it I’m still stuck in the other account. I can no longer switch to a different account. This is such a basic action for this app, an action that has been working for years. I have trie deleting the app and reinstalling it and it still no longer works. All my accounts are listed but I can not switch between them like I once could. Come on Google.

2 stars.. annoying problem.
I am a mobile chrome user myself, and have alwayd delt with the same problem, I have an iphone 8 which by itself is a kind of small phone so when it comes to the size of the screen its gonna be tough. But safari and other search engines have a zoom setting in the app or in the working tab, I know there is a text zoom setting on chrome but that only makes the text smaller that doesnt resolve the issue, lets say for example I wanted to read an article. The page on chrome was too small to read parts of the article and i couldnt zoom out it would just stay still and make the page go backwards if that makes sense. Developers of chrome please make a zoom page button where you can make the page more spacious, Thank you!!

Everything But The Bookmarks
I love everything about Google Chrome except for the new cumbersome steps to adding bookmarks (too many steps to save a bookmark to a particular folder you have set up, as anyone who uses a lot of bookmarks will want to manage them in organized folders of their own making, and no way to stop the unwanted default that you use one bulk “shopping list” folder that you never want to use). It would also be great if they introduced filters so that you can search your bookmark folders with more precision, such as narrowing searches down by date added. But the plug-ins are fantastic, the interface is so much better than Safari, etc.

Too Controlled in use options
To manage separate personal and school accounts is a constant battle on this version of Chrome for iPad. I don’t wish to link a school administrated account a personal account but feel completely bullied and persistently pressured to link. And then recently added my school account back after it mysteriously disappeared but then had to remove the personal account because the ability to toggle back and forth between the two had completely become impossible to find. It’s actually a complete joke and I avoid using this iPad because Chrome is so rigid in the way you all prefer for it to be used. I use Chrome on Mac and other Windows devices and the Chrome app is smooth and simple with a waffle menu to use docs or any other features and I don’t understand why this version for iPad is so different.

From great to terrible
I’ve been using just chrome for years, until recently been going great. However now that I can literally not search for anything on chrome without 100,000 ads popping up for my search, especially if it’s a product. And this is not just on chrome, it’s any app I use that has ads. For example. I recently purchased a different VPN since my ISP(looking at you Spectrum) is terrible. I’ve already purchased the product through no effort on chromes part. Now I cannot pull anything up without seeing an ad for it. And I do mean I cannot get away from it on any apps, even after marking the ad as irrelevant. Pop up blockers are apparently being disabled, started seeing more and more get through so I guess it’s time to switch back to Firefox only. And please note, when force fed ads over and over for products means I will never buy said product at all or ever again.

I hate using chrome on iOS can’t restore tabs after it crashes
This app is awful. It errors often (“oh snap!”), and crashes pretty consistently - losing every open tab. I have syncing on, but it rarely actually syncs. Unlike Firefox, you can’t manually sync. (That I can find). I’m so tired of chrome, and google’s stuff is proprietary enough that you can’t choose other default browsers. I just lost another 40-some tabs today. Chrome let me restore them after the first crash, then proceeded to crash again. I reopened chrome, saw it “sync”, it crashed again, and when I tried to recover recent tabs, there was nothing - because it synced right after it crashed! Too frustrating to depend on. I looked on my pc’s browser and it showed no synced tabs from my iPad. This has been going on for over 2 years with no improvement. Bookmark all open tabs regularly or you’ll be screwed. :(

Typing lags and bookmark icons have disappeared.
UPDATE: Still issues. Now the bookmarks don't show unless I go hunting for them in a menu. So, now they are still gone from the old bookmark grid page style AND NOW I have to actually LOOK for them. Why? Browser is slow, typing lags horribly, bookmarks icons disappear when scrolling down the screen. Chrome for iPad keeps forgetting my passwords. Please let us have the old bookmark method back, where we would have larger square icons that did not disappear when I scroll down the screen AND they sorted themselves horizontally across the screen, from left to right. I remove the titles on all of my bookmarks to be able to fit more on my desktop Chrome browser. The list-view of small icons is really poor design. I used to rave about how wonderful this browser was, but back in March, it seems to have taken a turn for the worse.

in short, the app is horrible, not intuitive, settings are made to obfuscate the user, is like they doing it on purpose instead of doing something nice they’re doing something awful, i just don’t get it, they have the funding to get the best results but for “some” reason they keep downgrading the user experience. thats with respect of the app along, now if we want to talk about search results, mmmm thats 1000’s times WORST. you don’t get top results that match the searching criteria, you get results from companies that PAY to be top results and that defeats the whole purpose and taint the old good reputation that google once had, we use to say “just google it” but Google took advantage of that and now searching with google is as useless as IE. i don’t get it or perhaps I do get it… now they just profiting without any incentive for the user. I would dare to say it would fail at the end because no one likes to be cheated and google had become masters at cheating so soon as more people realize it they would switch to other more transparent Browsers. sorry I just hate what google have become and this is coming from someone that used chrome for years and years but now I’m DONE.

Fails to restore tabs after crash
I use the app very intensely, sometimes I have over 20 tabs open at the same time. The result of this is that Chrome crashes quite often. I understand that it’s the result of using up too many resources, and I don’t have a problem with this specifically. But whenever Chrome offers to restore tabs after crash, the button is often not responsive or disappears before I can tap it. So I almost never can restore my previously opened tabs. If I go through the … menu, there’s nothing under the recent tabs at all, and it directs me to the History to do it manually. It’s a pain. Please consider having the restore tabs function improved, like having a permanent menu option or a shortcut like the desktop version has.

App not working on iPhone
Just bought a iPhone 12 Pro Max. Brand new from Apple. Downloaded chrome. Not responsive and as soon as I try to open the app it freezes as soon as I open the app. So the only thing I see is chrome logo with accept and select. I close the app and open it again and still same thing. Uninstalled the app and now the App Store says open in stead of “get”. Factory reset the phone and repeated the whole process and the same thing happened. Resting my phone is no problem as I use the iPhone for strictly work and I don’t have no apps but work related apps only. But those apps only work with chrome. So yeah totally not Apples fault as I have fully done everything on their part since I contacted them first about this problem thinking no way google would let people down like this. Well hope google fixes this.

Bug or irritating change
I’m not sure if it’s a bug or some new annoying thing, but recently this has been happening. Whenever I go out of the app, I close out my tabs. So when I come back to the app, those tabs should be gone. But for some reason, they’re back, even though I had already closed them off. So that’s one irritating thing, but then also sometimes I purposely leave a tab open when I close the app because I plan on coming back, and in the past it has always kept the tab there, but now sometimes I will come and it will have closed off the tab. I thought this just might be a glitch so I tried deleting the app and re downloading it but that did not work.

This was great
I love chrome. I gave it 2 stars, but let’s be honest, it’s still the best browser out there. BUT, this new update took a 5 star rating and turned it into a 2 Star. I abhor tr new layout. I stopped using safari precisely because I HATED the forward and back (and all the function buttons for that matter) buttons along the bottom of the screen. It makes zero sense to have address and navigation buttons in different places. Chrome had it beautifully placed. And what do they do? take 10 steps back to do exactly what their competitors failed to move on from 8 years ago. Their multiple tabs are not nearly as easily reached and navigated. Not tough to use at all, but another definite step back in terms of intuitive design. I’m not here telling you not to download it, but for the LOVE OF GOD put stuff back where it belongs!!!!!

Nearly impossible to switch accounts
I cannot switch accounts. I’ve tried everything, read all the online tutorials, etc. I’m pretty tech savvy but anytime I try to switch accounts, it doesn’t work and it won’t let me sign in to any other account. I have to delete an account in order to sign in to the other one. It’s slow and useless. I switched to safari on phone and I’m using sidekick on my Mac which is WAY better—window doesn’t close/quit when you close last tab, I have bookmarks that are separate from tabs, saves my place, and everything loads so much faster. Also, they have a function where you can use settings to make it so if you go to a distracting website it will automatically reroute to gmail or whatever you want. Sidekick is way better and faster and better privacy you should get it.

USED to be good
Google was my default search engine, and I use search a lot for my work. Recently, however, it has seriously declined. I will do a search for something very specific, and I am first shown add after add that is not relevant, and then shown many many things, none of which are relevant. I did a search tonight with a very specific term. Of course, I had to wade through the ads, but the actual results literally had nothing to do with my search, and none of the results even included my keyword in it. It was like I searched for apples, and they showed me spaceships. Not even red spaceships, not even spaceship cakes you could eat, just spaceships. Extremely disappointed. Just downloaded two other search engines. It’s very upsetting, because I have a lot of things tied to Google.

App deleted but says to update
Both of my google apps, chrome & gmail were deleted due to recurring security issues and inability to control open source codes being side loaded on an iPhone with there new UI kit/pancake side loading site. App Itunes says that I need to update them, search can’t find them & worse ! Some can’t even be removed-such as Apple Books where xml docs were seen holding python & a network manifest script that appears to clone my phone even without iCloud or back up activated. If I don’t want my health data stored then it shouldn’t be!! And Google should NEVER allow 2 emails to loop one another for 2fa along with an inability to delete or lock an acct like apple iTunes because it is easily to reset the phone if u have the phone and just the pin to log into the screen… Check those updates and verify they are legit!

Annoying on iPhone
The Chrome for iPhone has some annoying bugs, but I suspect they come from Apple just wanting to make the competition work poorly so users choose to use Safari, which is simply a terrible browser. First, the settings are such that you cannot allow location all the time, so you are asked every time you open a page for permission to turn on location. Very annoying, Apple. Then they always use a new tab when the browser is opened from another app so you quickly have dozens of open tabs slowing things down. This doesn’t happen on non iOS devices so the solution is obvious. My next phone will not be an iPhone. Thanks Apple for making the decision for me.

Wish it worked
I have attempted to use this browser off and on for the last year. I really want to like and use this browser. Accessing my bookmarks is a multi step process. I can’t tell it to open all of the bookmarks I have saved into file folders and instead have to open repeat the multi step process for each bookmark I need to open at the start of my day. I use google meets often. I don’t want to download the meeting app. I want to be able to use it in the browser window just like I can in safari. This way if I need to share my screen I don’t have to leave the app to get to the tab I need from my browser. I have found all of the google apps that I have attempted to use with IOS to be poorly designed for the end user. I am very disappointed in the product that has been put out for public use.

Love it. Hate the update. Any way to downgrade?
Just use actual Chrome on a computer, it works way better then this app which has disappointed me more then I expected. I love using this app, but the update has completely threw me off. I often use google and when I'm scrolling down, my fingers are always on the bottom of the screen and swiping things all the time. I read a lot and the new google update isn't helping. I prefer the old version where everything is on top of the screen where I can easily swipe up to hide and not accidentally click a button to go back or forth when I don't need to. I just want to know if there's anyway to downgrade the app. I also had over 100 tabs open. I lost it all in an instant and have NO way of getting them back. I haven't the slightest clue what majority of the tabs were called and it's extremely difficult to try to find EVERYTHING all over again which I don't have time for. I need a section in which the tabs I have recently deleted, ON ACCIDENT CAUSE IM NOT STUPID ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY WILLINGLY DO THAT, can be replaced in an instant. Without going into my history, because let's be honest. History is a mix of what happened on one tab. NOT ON ALL TABS THAT WE HAD. It's really starting to annoy me by how google chrome is starting to fail.

First app review !
I don’t do many reviews for apps in this store but ... Google chrome is amazing especially for storing data on your phone and computer, makes it so much easier, this version is great, I had this issue yesterday, I literally thought of suggesting to allow to use my chrome passwords , the only thing at the time was downloading all your passwords in PDF form, now Apple and google has made it so you can select auto fill passwords , chrome now is one of them! So I have my Apple and chrome all in one place. Maybe you saw me have the issue lol. Thanks for one of the best browsers and now more simple to use our stored private data.

Privacy violations
Google collects an absurd amount of data on you whenever you use any of their services. It’s commonly known that they sell this data to advertisers but it’s actually much deeper than that. They do sell your data to companies but they also give it to law enforcement to target you and your family when the state starts to crackdown on you. They also use it to train their ai tools that they are using to eliminate human labor and cut jobs, not just at their company but across the globe, and as we all know in this society job cuts don’t mean less work for everyone to share but more competition for the remaining jobs. And of course as these jobs get more ‘competitive’ the wages themselves go down. TLDR if you use Google apps your destroying the livelihood and jobs of yourself and everyone else to further enrich googles executives and shareholders

Back to Safari for now
Recently switched to the Chrome app with an iPhone 12 Pro upgrade. I use Chrome on my PC so was excited at the thought of being able to seamlessly switch from phone to PC when needed and especially now that Chrome can be set to default browser with iOS 14. Way too many bugs in the iOS version though. Like many others have mentioned, page competition consistently messes up and jumps off the screen to the left, pages wiggle left and right when scrolling not allowing for a quick enough scroll, and I’ve experienced not being able to scroll many pages in general, with the page constantly jumping back to the top as I try to scroll down. Simply way too bugs to continue using when I’ve never had any of these issues with Safari. I’ll be sticking with Safari until these bugs are fixed.

I keep deleting Chrome app off my iPhone XS Max and re-downloading it in hopes of fixing this huge annoying problem. The problem: Every time I open a new tab it automatically sends me to another tab (usually the top left tab) I already had open. It’s clearly a bug because I’ve deleted all my caches and cookies multiple times and no luck. I usually have 6-10 tabs open. For years this never happened. Now for months this has been happening. And yes it’s on the latest update as well as my iOS. It’s like when you open your car door but then your truck opens up on its own. It’s like taking a bite out of pizza but then you realize you just ate a boring piece of dried broccoli. It’s like working at Google for $150,000 a year as a programmer on the iOS Chrome app but then realize you broke what was never broken to begin with on your updates. 😐
