Google Chrome for iPad

Anyone tested HTML5 content with Google Chrome on an iPad? Chrome just came out recently for iPad and I was crossing my fingers that maybe HTML5 support would be better than what we get under Mobile Safari.

I tried the Green Monster example (which works flawlessly on Mobile Safari), but unfortunately all I got was this in Chrome...

Hi Will,

Storyline content should act very similar in Google Chrome for iPad as to how it does in Safari because they use the same webkit.  In a nutshell, the Google Chrome browser for iPad and iPhone is basically the same as Safari, but without some of the JavaScript optimizations.  See the link below for more information:

I just tried the Green Monster on my course and I can get it to display like yours only if I turn my iPad while it's loading.  If you refresh and don't rotate your iPad during mid-load, it should load as expected.  I could only get your screenshot to happen about 10% of the time.
