In addition to improved voice search, Chrome 27 for iOS users also boasts of faster page reloading. Simply put, pages will now reload faster, even if the network is slow or unavailable. Stability, security improvements and bug fixes feature in this new version too. Chrome 27 is up for grabs on the App Store.  

To be able to use Chrome 27 on your iOS devices, you will require devices running iOS 5.0 and above. Chrome 27 for iOS is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. It is optimised for iPhone 5, too.

Last month, when Google announced the stable channel release of Chrome 27, we wrote about a whole bunch of goodies that were doled out. But the highlight was the 5 percent speed boost. On its Chrome Releases blog, Google said that on Chrome 27 web pages loaded 5 percent faster on average.

In addition to that, there's a new API that allows saving and syncing content to Google Drive. Ranking of predictions, spell correction and Omnibox predictions have been doled out improvements too.
