to duplicate the built-in functionality of the default iOS apps. Browsers,
therefore, are limited to running a
customized interface atop Safari Mobile — which is what alternative apps like Dolphin
and Firefox Home do right now. Chrome for iOS, then, would work the same
way — and it would probably look a lot

that Apple may already be reviewing the app and that it could arrive before the
end of the second quarter — or at least some time later this year. One
thing’s for sure: if Google does offer up Chrome for iOS, they’re
probably hoping that doing so will free up a few extra dollars. Right now,
they’re splitting revenue with Apple for all searches fired off through Safari.
