Easily open web pages in Chrome on iOS
Authored by: Anonymous on Jul 02, '12 02:08:14PM

Alternative browsers are available, but they're suffer for not being integrated or we wouldn't have seen this hint. Every link you open takes you to Safari, even if you explicitly install a third party alternative. Also, you can't remove Safari. It is anti-competitive.

To roll out the time-honored car analogy, this is like being unable to remove the OEM radio when you buy one that suits your purpose better; and having to tune your aftermarket radio through the controls of the OEM radio.

No, the car analogy would be that every Chevy comes bundled with a Chevy engine. Can you put a Ford engine in? Not easily.

Or... that every iPhone comes bundled with iOS. Can you run Android on it? Can you run iOS on an Android phone? Can you run Safari on an Android?

See how it gets stupid in this case?
