By  at Tuesday, July 17, 2012  

       The recent iOS version of Chrome makes Safari look like Internet Explorer, so here’s how to set it as your default mobile web browser…  Fed up of Safari? Jailbreak, and make Chrome your iPhone’s, iPod touch’s or iPad’s default web surfing app..

Plenty of great third-party web browsers for the iPhone and iPad are available,  but they all suffer from the same Apple-imposed handicap… Tap a link in an email or any other app, and your device automatically jumps to Safari… Nevertheless, if you jailbreak your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, there are options that allow you to change all that.

Only few steps to make Chrome – or any other, for that matter – third-party iOS web browser the default app for pocket surfing.

Step 1: Jailbreak Your Device

Jailbreaking isn’t bad, or illegal… It’s how you adapt your own belongings. So go do it (Jailbreak).

Step 2: Install Chrome

Via the App Store, search for the Google Chrome web browser app, and install it on your device. Nothing fancy about this – just a typical iTunes installation.

Step 3: Launch Cydia

In this step, tap the Cydia icon to open up the “other” app store… This will  refresh the listings, and then tap the “Search” button… Type “Browser Changer” into the text box and hit the “Search” button.

Step 4: Install Browser Changer

In this step:
* tap the entry for Browser Changer from the search results to open its full listing page…
* then tap the “Install” button, followed by the “Confirm” button on the next page…
* the app is downloaded and installed on your device…
* hit the “Respring” button to finish the installation.

Step 5: Activate Browser Changer

Launch the Settings app and scroll down to the “Browser Changer” entry. Tap it, and slide the “Enable Changer” switch to “On.”

Step 6: Set Chrome As Your Default iOS Web Browser

In this step, tap the “Selected Browser” button and tap the entry for Chrome… Next time you tap a link in any other app, Chrome will jump to the fore instead of Safari… The internet is now your bitch.
