This year, Apple made some significant changes to Safari with iOS 15, which has been redesigned with a new unified address bar at the bottom of the screen. While this change has upset a number of iOS users, Samsung is now following Apple with a new option to move its mobile web browser’s address bar down, just like Safari.
The new layout has been added with an update to the Samsung Internet Beta App, which is now available for the company’s Android smartphones.
Going into 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 turned on, the Samsung internet app looks a lot like Safari in iOS 15. The address bar appears 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. However, Samsung seems to have decided to change the layout of its web browser soon after Apple did.
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.
