Safari is the default browser of all products Apple, including mobile devices like the iPhone or iPod Touch. The mobile version of Safari is very easy to use and has several interesting options like the reading list that keeps news to read them later without being bothered by commercials.
The simplicity that characterizes all brand products is also present in Safari. But you can always improve certain aspects. Browse Internet is one of the most used features in smartphones or tablets and always is grateful that programs dedicated to this purpose are comfortable to wear.
Google Chrome is another browser that has more followers because of its ease of use as it seamlessly integrates with all Google services (Google Plus, Google Docs, Gmail …). Google’s browser already has landed in the App Store and you can have it in the iPhone with all its features.
One of the advantages of Chrome is that the top bar, in addition to writing the http web address, also used for searching Google. By contrast in two distinct fields Safari, one for search and one for writing web addresses. Users who have used the system of Chrome certainly feel the lack of this feature.
If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch with Jailbreak you can install a new free application that has just appeared called Safari Omnibar. What makes this tool is to bring the search bar of Chrome to Safari. As usual, after installing the application must restart the springboard for the changes to take effect.
Now when you open Safari you will see that the top is a single bar instead of two as in the standard version. By clicking on the toolbar opens the virtual keyboard and get an icon with a magnifying glass, when pressed will change the function of the bar so they can be searched. To type Web addresses have to go back to press this icon.
Omnibar Safari can be useful, but considering that the official implementation of Google Chrome has already come to the iPhone, it may not make much sense for some users who prefer to download Chrome directly. The downside is that the default browser will remain Safari.
Again the Jailbreak has the solution to the problem, a few days ago we told you about a tool of Cydia that allows changing the default browser of IOS, so each time you click a link open automatically. This application is called Browser Chooser and is available in Cydia also free. In addition to Chrome also works with other browsers like Opera Mini or Dolphin Browser.
Clearly, Google Chrome has interesting features, but if you want to keep using Safari tool Omnibar Safari can be a good option to increase the functionality of this browser.
