If I install chrome into the iOS device, would Worklight suddenly use a different webkit to run the html page? Do I have to worry about testing Worklight app against different browser’s web kit engine?

    No. Chrome dosen't bring anything new to iOS (ie. different version of WebKit), it's just mobile Safari with a different UI and no Nitro JS Engine (http://www.buzzfeed.com/jwherrman/the-problem-with-chrome-for-ios).

    The next question, what about Ericsson's Bowser Browser? It is much different. Also, why not use Chrome because of the JS engine? It would seem that we would like to take advantage of specific features with the addition of other extensions. For example, Bowser has WebRTC.

    Worklight applications run inside a UIWebView (https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/uikit/reference/UIWebView_Class/Reference/Reference.html). Installing other applications such as Chrome or Bowser on your iOS device will not change that.
