[iOS] How to open web pages in Chrome rather than Safari and make Chrome your default browser
Posted By Locutus On June 30, 2012 @ 5:19 PM In iOS | 2 Comments
Want to use the gloriously synchronizing, amazingly web-centric browser that is Chrome for iOS, but feel that it’s not integrated nearly well enough into your device? That’s all part of Apple’s plan, but luckily, there are easy ways around it. For those people who don’t wish to jailbreak their devices, there’s an easy-to-use bookmarklet to send links from Safari to Chrome, and for those who do jailbreak, there’s a tweak to skip Safari all together.
Don’t feel like jailbreaking? That’s fine, and it doesn’t mean that you can’t still use Chrome. With thirty seconds of your time, you can create a handy bookmarklet that, when you tap it, sends the current page to Chrome. This is handy if you’re trying to view something from an app, it sends you to Safari, and you want to be in Chrome.
Want to set Chrome as your real default browser, not some third wheel of a synchronization tool that you can open with a fancy schmancy bookmark? Unfortunately, due to Apple’s locked-down garden, you’re out of luck. Unless, of course, you jailbreak.
If you’re interested in setting Chrome as your real default browser, you’ll need to be jailbroken. You can find instructions on jailbreaking right here on dotTech . Once you are, come back here and you can get started!
What do you think about the new Chrome for iOS browser? Is it your new default browser, and would you jailbreak just for it?
