It was just yesterday when iOS users started to get a hang of Google Chrome on their devices and just after few hours, there’s already a jailbreak tweak available that allows you to make it the default browser in iOS as well.
Developed by jailbreak dev Ryan Petrich , the tweak BrowserChooser allows you to get rid of Apple’s Safari browser from opening web links by shifting default priorities to Chrome.
Petrich informed via his Twitter account:
BrowserChooser is up on rpetri.ch/repo. Loving Chrome for iOS so much that it had to be built.
It’s just like the old Browser Changer tweak (except off-course with Chrome option added now) Once installed, you can make Chrome your iDevice’s default browser via the stock Settings app. This tweak is reported to work upon opening links from Messages, Tweetbot and more.
To install BrowserChooser on your jailbroken device, you’re going to need Ryan Petrich’s repo. If you don’t have it, simply open up Cydia and then tap Manage > Sources > Edit > Add, and type rpetri.ch/repo. Once the repo is added, all you have to do is search for BrowserChooser and install it.
Oh and did I mention, this tweak is free to download so headover Cydia now and install this package right away.
