How can I make Chrome my default iPhone browser?

Is there a way to make Chrome my default iPhone browser? For example, at present, when I click a link in Mail, it opens Safari, bleurgh :p

No, you can't. Copy the link and paste is the best you cam do. Only jailbreak can give you what you're looking for; and I found the hacks a bit hit and miss. I hope Apple change this soon, You can share iTunes content with some 3rd party apps now and photos, too. Why not a fr+gging link?

Apple don't want to make it easy to not use their apps so can't see them changing it.

Well, various photo editing apps now let you import albums from the phone's gallery (not via iTunes file sharing)... So, in theory you don't need to use Apple's gallery again. Garageband, Thumbjam etc can now open iTunes tracks, import, export etc... So, slowly but surely things get a little bit easier. And after maps-gate they can't pretend that not using their own apps is all bad - they recommended alternatives ;)

But still the default maps is their one?
