    After using Safari with content blockers (and having mind blown) why are people still using Chrome?

    I use Safari and can’t imagine living without iCloud tabs syncing everything between devices. I imagine some people prefer to use Chrome on the desktop, and stick with Chrome on iOS for that reason.

    This exactly. Also, I love not having to type in any login details since chrome has them all saved.
    Plus if you jailbreak your iPhone (which should be a sin not to do) you can have adblock on Chrome and get a nice speed boost. There’s a tweak called Nitrous that removes something that apple did to slow down third party browsers.

    Nobody jailbreaks anymore
    Haha what?!? I don’t even know how to respond to something so nonsensical. Tons of tweaks still come out every day, and many jailbreak communities like are thriving, like they always have been.
    Why do all that when safari is lightning and chrome is pure bloat?
    I had to test this for myself because I honestly haven’t used Safari in years. I tried loading,, and on both chrome and safari. I also tried using Chrome first for some and safari first for others, because I’m not sure how caching might affect this. Conclusion, they’re both identical. 3-5 seconds to load most websites on LTE and chrome was actually faster for ESPN go. The only advantage is the safari app launches quicker.
    On the other hand, chrome has a better UI (in my opinion), better gesture controls, syncs with chrome on my desktop including tab sharing, passwords and bookmarks (this is HUGE), can search for text on a page, is easier to access the "request desktop site" option, among other things. There’s tons of reasons Chrome is superior to Safari.
