BrowserChooser Updated with iOS 7 Support

Ryan Petrich's jailbreak tweak BrowserChooser has been updated to support iOS 7. The tweak allows users to make Google Chrome, Opera Mini, iCab Mobile, Dolphin Browser or Atomic Browser their default browser instead of Safari. This tweak is even better when paired with the jailbreak tweak Nitrous.


Third-party browsers are not as fast as Safari because Apple restricts access to the Nitro JavaScript engine in iOS. Nitrous unlocks the faster JIT compiler making other applications like Chrome, Facebook and Twitter 4-to-5x faster.

BrowserChooser is available for free on Cydia. It will be added to your Settings app once it is installed. You will obviously also need to download Chrome or another browser for it to work.

Nitrous is available on Cydia for $0.99. Both are hosted on the BigBoss repo.
