In near future, the users of iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad can surf the internet using Chrome, a browser made​​ by Google that so far only available for Android-based mobile plaform. As reported by Tech Source, Apple is currently testing iOS version of Chrome browser that are created by Google.

There is still no definite information about the release date of the Chrome browser for iOS. But it is expected to be release in the near future, possibly in the second quarter of 2012.

If properly launched, Chrome will be serious rival of Safari, the browser used by Apple's mobile devices. Chrome popularity among desktop computer users surpassed other browsers, like Firefox and Safari.

However, Apple is sure that their Safari browser would still be used by users of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

As a result, when opening an Internet link, the active browsing application will be opened is Safari, not the other browser.
