Chrome fans who have jailbroken iPhones, take note: there’s a new Cydia tweak that can make Chrome the default iOS browser. Per VeryRite, jailbreak app developer Ryan Petrich has concocted a tweak called BrowserChooser that lets users replace Safari with any other browser they want as their default browser, including the just-released iOS version of Chrome. VeryRite says that the new tweak is free to install and is “an excellent utility” for anyone who owns a jailbroken iPhone. Earlier this week BGR did a hands-on preview of Chrome and came away very impressed, so it’s not hard to imagine the BrowserChooser tweak being a popular commodity for jailbroken iPhone users.
