This year Apple made some significant changes to Safari with iOS 15, which has been renumbered with a new unified title bar at the bottom of the screen. While this change annoys a number of iOS users, Samsung is now following Apple with a new option to move the address bar of the mobile web browser to the bottom – just like Safari.
New design added with file update Samsung Internet beta appIt is now available for the company’s Android smartphones.
Going to the layout and menu settings in the browser preferences, there is now an option for “Address bar position”. There, users can choose between the classic web browser layout and the new layout with the unified title bar at the bottom of the screen.
With the “Bottom” option enabled, the Samsung Internet app looks just like Safari in iOS 15. The address bar is displayed above the navigation controls and buttons for managing tabs, sharing, and other app settings.
It’s worth noting that Apple wasn’t the first company to experiment with a similar mobile web browser design, and other companies like Google tried this years ago. However, it appears that Samsung decided to change the layout of its web browser shortly after Apple did.
After several complaints, Apple allowed users to revert Safari to the old design in iOS 15, although the new design is still enabled by default. The company has also released updates for the iPadOS and macOS versions of Safari that reflect the controversial design changes.
