Is Chrome 28 for iOS using Blink or WebKit?

I don't think iOS allows browsers to use their own backend. So Chrome would be using Safari which would be using webkit.

^^Someone verify?

Chrome for iOS has always used a limited Safari core as its backend. Only part from Chromium is its network stack, which supports SPDY and some other stuff.

Pease make it possible to switch off fullscreen. I hate it for it's restless behavior. Just try and see a picasa slideshow!

I hate full screen. Full screen needs a toggle. The constant sliding and tapping to get the address bar and back buttons far out weighs the tiny screen increase.

I hate full screen. Please tell me how to turn it off, or how to go back to the previous update.

Is there a way to turn off full screen? It's driving me crazy! I can't stand it!
