    Default How to change the default web browser

    I'm a jailbreak newbie. Would like to know how to set Google Chrome as my default browser. How is this done?

    Browser Changer, appropriately enough.

    That does the trick but, I see Safari still originally launches then Chrome launches. Is there anything that does this a little more cleanly?

    I have no problem with Safari launching first . Goes straight to Chrome. Maybe try reinstalling?

    That is odd. This "safari first" effect would happen when I used BrowserChooser so I switched to Browser Changer. Perhaps try the other or reinstall?

    That did the trick. Switched to "browser changer" now no "safari first" issue. Thanks!

    Default How to change the default web browser

    I am using browser changer and I set my browser to Mercury Pro. But when I do a spotlight search and hit search the web my iPhone crashes. I read that this was fixed with the latest version of BC.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I have been searching everywhere to find out what I'm doing wrong with my Browser Changer. I've tried uninstalling, respringing, and even using a different device and I am still at a loss. When I go into my Settings App and go down to the Cydia apps, touch Browser Changer and see the options I have them all selected but when I go to select a browser none of them are able to be selected. What am I missing?
