Anyone used the google chrome for ios yet called iChromy
I just saw a few days ago the ios equivilant of google chrome was out called iChromy. I love Opera Mini except for a few things that force to load in safari browser. Was wondering if anyone has tried the new browser yet?

It's not Chrome, it's just mobile Safari with a new skin and name. All browsers on the iPhone are like that. Except for Opera Mini which is really a proxy and Opera's servers do all the work and send it to your phone. Skyfire at least for flash content does that as well but I think the main browser part also is the same webkit engine.
App Stores rules - no other browser engines allowed. (Even though Chrome does use webkit anyway.)
Is this on Cydia? I'm not seeing it in the App Store.

Here is the Ichromy web browser support from Itunes. Shows the options and what not. But no it is not a jailbreak app. It was released in the app store May 26 and is refered to as a interface.

I couldn't find it in the app store US. or Canadian. I am trying one call Mercury and it seems ok so far. I only use Opera to get around the company site block when I cant get a signal in the building and have to use the wifi. I have not looked into it so I am not sure if I would a proxy browser for banking.
