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.

Make Google Chrome Your Default iPhone Browser

Jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich has released a new tweak called BrowserChooser in response to Google's popular iOS Chrome browser app being released yesterday. Petrich tweeted: “BrowserChooser is up on Loving Chrome for iOS so much that it had to be built.”

The tweak allows you to change your default browser to Google Chrome, Opera Mini, iCab Mobile, Dolphin Browser, Atomic Browser or Safari. You can toggle between all your available browsers in the Settings menu. Petrich's tweak arrived around the same time Chrome became the most downloaded free app in the App Store.
