    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 redit.com/r/jailbreak 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 ESPN.go.com, Youtube.com, and theverge.com 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.
