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.

Google Releases iOS Chrome Browser App

A new web browsing option for iPhone and iPad users is now available thanks to Google. The Chrome web browser requires iOS 4.3 or later and provides a bevy of features to enhance web browsing on iOS mobile devices. One of the key highlights is the ability to sync your browsing between these devices and your desktop computer.

All of your omnibox data, tabs, bookmarks and passwords are synced when logged into your Google Chrome account. You can even send pages to your iOS device from a computer to read later offline. Much like the desktop version, Chrome for iOS also has a private browsing mode.

Analyst Report: Google Chrome Browser for iOS Coming This Year

Google wants to keep 100% of its mobile search revenue, and plans to do so by releasing Google Chrome for iOS devices before the end of the year, according to Macquarie analyst Ben Schacter.

Schacter writes: "Apple may already be reviewing Google’s submitted code for a Chrome browser for iOS."

It's unknown whether Apple will approve or reject the Chrome browser, but Schacter claims we can expect it sometime this year.

"Schacter says we can expect a Chrome browser for iOS as soon as Q2, but if not this quarter, then definitely this year."

According to Business Insider, Google must share an estimated 50%-60% of its search revenue with Apple. If Google cuts out Apple's Safari browser they will then get to keep 100% of their revenue.
