    Is there any way to install the Chrome (or Chromium) web-browser in iOS?
    Would it be possible to just compile Chromium and its dependancies for iOS? I'm sure it would not get accepted into App Store, since its written in C++ and not Objective-C. Touch-based scrolling can be achieved by an extension.

    The only usability problem I foresee would be to get up the keyboard when you wanted to type.


    I've been using the desktop compiled version via everyair, and I would like to have the full version installed as a native app. Also my previous phone/tablet the Nokia N900, I ran Chromium simply cross compiled (no code edited), though the N900 had a slide out keyboard.

    There was a group working on this exact app for Cydia. Let me see if I can dig up the info and I'll post it.

    I saw that too, but I know I read an article somewhere on a group of people who were working on this exact project and it's killing me I can't find it again. I will post if I can find it again.
