Google Chrome for iOS adds Google+ Sharing

Have you tried Google Chrome on your iPhone yet? As part of the ongoing "war" between Google and Apple, Google recently released Chrome for iOS. Today, the first update to the app was released and the featured update was the addition of Share to Google+.

We've all been familiar with Safari's share options. When viewing a website in Safari on your iPhone or iPad, you can opt to share that site via email. As of the last iOS update Twitter support was added. Now, if you're using Chrome for iOS you can share easily to email and Twitter as well as Facebook and Google+.

This puts Apple at a disadvantage. The new iOS 6 due to be released in September has promised Facebook integration. While it might have once seemed unlikely that Apple would add support for Google's social network, particularly when so much effort has been made to replace Google Maps with a new Apple Map system, one has to wonder if Apple will feel pressured to provide Google+ support or risk losing users to more Google+-friendly apps like Chrome.
