- Apparrently they do Thomas!
I have just installed Chrome on my iPhone 4 for you. I also have Opera.
(an image which looks like an anaglyph and two blended triangles)
* Works in Opera
* Shows the unmodified image in Chrome, but the triangles blended. It seems to freeze without ever finishing loading the page.
* Displays the same in the built-in Safari as in Chrome, but doesn't have the never-loaded problem.
From my research, filters work in:
- Firefox since v3.0.0
- Opera since v9.1 but with issues, since 9.5 happily
- Chrome since v5
- Safari never (up to v5)
- IE Never (up to v9)
HOWEVER: I am currently having issues generally with image compositing in different browsers, so there's a chance that my SVG has issues. I have another post pending to this list with more details, I expect it to be approved and appear soon.

- Because, for security reasons, Apple doesn't allow apps built on WebView to
resulting WebView apps, including Chrome for iOS, are about 5x slower. This
is an Apple problem, not a Chrome problem.
