    See I figure you can sync to the laptop and vice versa, but I have bookmarks saved in mobile safari that I don't have on my laptop (I do most of my MMi mobile). I think it's easier just to copy/paste the bookmarks, but I'm sure there's a way to export the bookmarks from safari and import them into Chrome. But that'd require some SSH or iFile work, not even sure if what I'm imagining exists lol.

    Yep, installed Browser Changer lastnight and e-mailed the developer about Chrome support. Look how responsive he is, updated with support for Chrome and a few others today!

    Browser Changer supports many (maybe all) 3rd party iOS Browsers!

    Needs an SB settings toggle, so until then I'll wait for BrowserChanger to be updated...

    This is another example of functionality I would be willing to pay for. It seems the things that I am willing to pay for are free. The things that I am NOT willing to pay for not only cost money, but I find them to be way overpriced, LOL!

    Bzzt. Wrong. Firefox Home is a utility to sync bookmarks only, it is not a web browser. It passes along all web surfing duties to your default installed browser.

    There probably won't be Firefox on iOS for a long while, if ever.

Because of this, we have no supported way to distribute Firefox's rendering and JavaScript engine to iPhone users.
    However, you can download Firefox Home for iPhone, an iOS app that uses Firefox Sync to deliver Firefox bookmarks, browsing history, and tabs to your iPhone or iPod Touch.

    On the computer you can export bookmarks from Safari and import them into Chrome. The Chrome will sync to iOS.

    I have the bookmarks on mobile safari not safari on my laptop. What a handful to have to take them from my phone then put it on my laptop then move it to chrome then sync to my phone.

    You press the menu button (next to the tabs button) and hit the refresh button at the top of the menu.

    Handful? just turn on iCloud, it syncs them automatically. And if your bookmarks are that important, then you should be doing this anyway, if only for a backup!

    Use Browser Changer instead of BrowserChooser. That one makes springboard shortcuts open in the default browser you select.

    Chrome doesn't support flash. Puffin does. Therefore this app should have support for Puffin as well. But Chrome is still better than Safari

    It now supports Puffin as well.

    BrowserChoose has been updated to version 0.9 – live on Ryan Petrich's repository. The update brings support for more Web browsers. Check the article (edited) to see the new Web browser support.
