As promised, Google's delivered an update to its Chrome app for iOS that bypasses Siri for the tech giant's own voice-controlled search. Now, users living in Cupertino's curated kingdom can talk at their screens using the Chrome browser's omnibox and watch as those inquires are quickly displayed in realtime. Google's voice search will also now talk back (politely) to users, relaying answers to specific queries. And thanks to some additional under-the-hood tweaks, cached pages should reload faster -- helpful when dealing with spotty connectivity issues -- while links from other iOS apps can now be opened in Chrome. You can grab it at the source now or, if you're already leaning on Chrome for your iOS browser fix, wait for the App Store update.
