iChromy – the Chrome-style browser for the iPad – has had a recent update, to Version 1.1. One of the notable additions is that it now offers more privacy when browsing, through a new ‘Incognito Mode’. It’s even got a slick dodgy looking spy guy icon that shows when you turn this new mode on.
This update brings a wealth of other new features and enhancements as well. Here’s the full change list:

iChromy is a very nice 3rd party iPad browser and a good Safari alternative. This update isn’t a huge, major one – but it adds some nice new features, especially for those who want some privacy in their browsing. It’s always good to see already-strong apps continuing to update and improve.
Here’s an App Store link for iChromy; it’s a free app.
