That’s exactly what Apple has done with the latest version of Safari, from which we can share information directly to Twitter or Facebook.
The plan is simple: Continue to engage Safari users by offering the same benefits as the default iOS browser with the addition of Google’s own advantages: synchronizing tabs and data from open sessions in the cloud, or sharing on networks where Safari hasn’t reached like Google+.
We all agree that Chrome may be the first alternative browser to actually make Safari start losing users, but Apple’s not going to make it easy. Safari is the default browser by force and doesn’t allow users to change that (at least directly), although from the developers’ side it is possible that applications can open links using alternative browsers.
Chrome is free and the new version can now be downloaded from the App Store for all iOS devices.
