With version 2.2-1 of Nitrous, any iOS 7 app that uses the webkit browser to display webpages will have the full benefit of Apple’s Nitro. For example, Lifehacker did a V8 Benchmark comparison of Chrome running the iOS 6 version of Nitrous. The speeds were noticeably better.
- Chrome without Nitrous Score: 96
- Chrome with Nitrous Score: 347
- Safari Score: 360
While Chrome doesn’t quite match Safari’s speed, the slight difference is most likely unnoticeable. If you’ve jailbroken your iOS 7 device, be sure to grab this tweak. Due to MobileSubstrate incompatibilities, Nitrous for iOS 7 is only compatible with A6 devices and lower for now.
