Last week Google released the much-anticipated iOS version of their popular Chrome browser. Though the Chrome for iOS is, by all accounts (including mine), a fantastic app, it suffers from the same problem that plagues every other third party browser in the App Store: it can’t be set as the default browser. Of course, that’s Apple’s fault, not Google’s, but it’s still frustrating. Though jailbreakers have options in the form of tweaks like BrowserChooser and Browser Changer, those who aren’t willing to jailbreak are stuck.
It’s as simple as that. Now if you want to open a page in Chrome instead of Safari, all you have to do is pull up your bookmarks and tap “Open in Chrome” (or whatever you decided to call it) and you’re good do go.
