Chrome was released back in June as an alternative to Safari.

Speaking of Google, earlier today, Google Drive for iOS was also updated to support spreadsheet editing and collaboration, a much requested feature since its original launch back in June. Users can also view a new uploads section to manage files in their Drive. Rich text copy-paste is also now available and it works great:
