Google has released a nice update for its Chrome browser for iOS today, adding a new full-screen browsing mode for iPhone and iPod touch, support for printing using Apple’s AirPrint or Google Cloud Print, the ability to save an entire webpage as a PDF using Google Drive, and more.

The new update brings the version number up to 26, and comes about a month after the previous update. The full-screen browsing brings an especially nice touch, and works a lot more smoothly than the same mode on Apple’s own Mobile Safari browser. Finally, the app has also been updated with some security and stability fixes to improve overall performance.

From the release notes:

What’s New in Version 26.0.1410.50 

Fullscreen for iPhone and iPod touch 

  • Scroll the toolbar off the screen to enjoy the full page of content. 
  • Quickly re-access the omnibox by scrolling back down. 

Printing 

  • Print web pages with Google Cloud Print or AirPrint. 
  • Save any page as a PDF to Google Drive 

Stability / security improvements and bug fixes

Chrome for iOS is, as always, a free download from the App Store.
