    Is it possible someone could make an addon for google chrome (windows) so that google chrome tabs could appear in your iCloud tabs?

    I could just start using safari for windows but I'm kinda married to google chrome on the PC. I'd rather not switch

    I just use Google Chrome on my phone too. They've had the "cloud" feature available on there since it was released a couple months ago.

    I thought about doing that but chrome for iOS is not as fast as safari.

    Safari for Windows has stopped being updated. It will not sync tabs.

    Apple has not made the iCloud Tab sync API public, there is no way to make the tabs sync with Chrome via plugin.

    You can get Chrome app on iPhone.

    It doesn't seem any slower for me. The only thing that bothers me is that you can't open up any links from emails using Chrome since they default to Safari.

    The JavaScript engine in chrome is not nearly as fast as safari iOS 6, which is an apple SDK limitation and the inability to set default browsers causes you to open safari with all links.

    Those two things can be changed with a jailbreak but I really get tired of the jailbreak hassles.
