From plethora of web services like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Fit, Google Chrome, Google Maps etc, Google Chrome is something that is being used widely over our desktops and that is the only reason we prefer to use it on our portable devices too. However, like any other app, iOS framework does not allow you to make it your default preference.
Whenever you are tempted to open any link, it will always redirect you towards Safari browser. In some of the cases it might ask you whether you want to open this link in Chrome or Safari but most of the time it doesn’t.
