Samsung adds an option to move the address bar of its mobile web browser down
Samsung is now following Apple with a new option to move its mobile web browser’s address bar down, much like Safari. The new layout was added with an update to Samsung’s Internet beta app, which is now available for the company’s Android smartphones, reports 9To5Mac.
By accessing the layout and menu settings in browser preferences, there is now an “Address bar position” option. There, users can choose between the classic web browser layout and the new one with the unified address bar at the bottom of the screen.
With the “Down” option enabled, the Samsung Internet app looks quite similar to Safari in iOS 15. The address bar is displayed above the navigation controls and buttons for tab management, sharing and viewing. ‘other application settings.
It should be noted that Apple was not the first company to try a similar layout for a mobile web browser, as other companies such as Google tried a few years ago, according to the report.
However, Samsung seems to have decided to change the layout of its web browser soon after Apple did, he added. After several complaints, Apple let users revert to the old Safari design in iOS 15, although the new layout is still enabled by default.
The company also released updates to the iPadOS and macOS versions of Safari that roll back the controversial design changes.
