As you might have already known why iOS jailbreaking is so much popular ?, why one million downloads were made by the users soon after the iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak tool Absinthe released ?. It’s to do what Apple restricted in their iOS firmware updates. Here i’m going to let you know a method to set an iOS application as the default one instead of Apple’s own app. I’m talking about to put Google Chrome as the default web browser on your iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch with the help of a jailbreak tweak.
Google has recently rolled out their official Chrome application for iOS and made it available in Apple app store for downloading. You can get it from the iTunes link which we have given below. There is no doubt about the popularity of Google Chrome and why people considered it as the best web browser available now. Speed matters a lot when we compared it with its best competitor Mozilla Firefox.
But unfortunately Apple hasn’t made any options to make it as the default web browser for their iOS devices such as iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, instead of Apple’s own web browser, Safari. So when we try to open a link in a text message or something, Safari will automatically get opened and navigate to the page.
Jailbreak tweak BrowserChooser will play its role in those situations. Once you have downloaded and installed it properly you can select the web browsers and make your desired browser as the default one. Like i mentioned, it is a jailbreak tweak, so that you should jailbreak your iOS device on the running iOS version to get BrowserChooser installed.
