Don't get excited, it is using the same engine from safari. It is just an overlay of the new UI which is a good thing.

I am very concerned about the spyware of all things Google. They already market every piece of information on a persons usage they can trawl for.
Beware of the Google bearing gifts.
Dont use their products or services.

Just surprised how i didnt hear about , 'apple controlling their devices' and crap.

If u want apple software , then go and buy apple device (and u can get all choices too , google maps , apple maps , bing maps , chrome , safari , firefox and whatever and it supports all cloud services including skydrive ) but no hardware choice.

P.s why would you want safari on android? It sucks on non apple devices

You are right that apple are selfish but back in the old days their were not

Google pays apple 1bil to have its search engine by default so with google chrome on iPhone google won't have to pay this much anymore people will be using google chrome
