I have an old iPad 4 and I am having trouble with some websites as my safari browser needs updating but I can't do that because Apple says I can't update my tablet anymore. I thought about downloading Google Chrome.
Has anyone got Chrome on their iPad? Does it work well?

That link says iOS 12 or later. As far as I know the iPad 4 stops at version 10

I wouldn’t have thought Chrome would work in an iPad 4 unless you already had an old version of it

No. I haven't got an old version. Have always used Safari.
The browser? I use the browser on my iPad no problems. If you mean the operating system, I have no idea
Do you have an iPad 4 though? They are ancient
It won't hurt to try. If it doesn't work, uninstall it.

Perhaps your iPad isn't as old as mine barry. I haven't had any problems until recently.

Thanks barry. That answers the question. I think it's time for a new iPad.
Most alternative web browsers won't run on an iPad 4 but Dolphin (which only requires iOS 8.0 or later) should. I've used it on an Android tablet and I quite like it:

I've got Chrome on my ipad 4 but rarely use it.

Some apps will offer the option to use the last compatible version.
I quite like Dolphin, too.

Thanks for all your input. Most helpful everyone.
Yes, crome works well on Ipad. It is made with the identical internals as Safari. I think you can't set Chrome to be the default browser in iOS. However, on my iPad, I always had better experiences with Safari.
Old versions of Chrome worked on old iPads
If you didn’t have one of those old versions by now it would be too late
