Chrome on iPad 3

Just downloaded the Chrome browser for iOS on my iPad 3. Pinch-to-zoom is kind of choppy on the iPad 3, don't know whether this is due to the Retina display resolution, or this version of Chrome is still in its infancy. Loaded a few graphically heavy websites, including this one, and it seems that Safari is still a bit faster. There doesn't seems to be an option to display the bookmark bar either. Well, this is the first version and I'm sure it will get better over time.

What's your experience with it on iPhone and older iPads?

(Btw, when searching for Chrome in app store it didn't show up. But I found it in under Google's "developer page" in app store)
