Google has released an update to Chrome for iOS which brings fullscreen mode to the iPad, Text-to-Speech, Bandwidth Management, History, and more.

Browse fast with Chrome, now available on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Sign in to sync your personalized Chrome experience from your computer, and bring it with you anywhere you go.

Search fast
• Search and navigate fast, directly from the same box. Choose from results that appear as you type.

Simple, intuitive experience
• Open and quickly switch between an unlimited number of tabs. On your iPhone and iPod touch, flip through tabs the way you would fan a deck of cards. On iPad, swipe from edge to edge to switch tabs.

Sign in
• Sign in to Chrome to sync your open tabs, bookmarks, passwords, and omnibox data from your computer to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Pick up right where you left off.
• Send pages from Chrome on your computer to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with one click and read them on the go, even if you’re offline.

The full screen mode for the iPad is annoying and I hate it. It makes me want to abandon it like I did Digg.

And this is why I prefer Web version of YouTube and fb because the mobile versions are still close and are missing a few things. Both involve marking out comments as spamming. I am doing everything I can for these updates.
