Safari is a good browser, but there is a reason why Google Chrome has the largest market share. Thankfully, as long as you run iOS 14, iPadOS 14 or later, you can set any third-party browser on your iPhone or iPad by default.
First open the “Settings”; app. If you’ve lost it in a sea of icons, use Apple’s built-in Spotlight search to find the application.
Locate the section of the browser that you want to set by default in the Settings menu. For example, go to Settings> Chrome to set Google Chrome as your default browser.
If your third-party browser has been updated to support Apple’s default browser switching feature, you will find the “Default Browser App” option in its settings. Push it.
You will then see a list of all browser apps installed on your device that support the default browser feature. Tap the name of the browser you want to use by default.
Then press the “Back” button once and exit “Settings”. From now on, when you click on a URL link, it opens in the browser app you selected.
Note that restarting your iPhone or iPad resets the default setting as you type this. It is not yet clear if this was designed to be restored or if it is a bug.
